VSCA Regional Workshops

Are you looking for training close to home? Our Regional Workshops are held across Virginia in the late fall and early winter.  These affordable workshops are hosted by the elected Regional Representative schools so are within driving distance of member schools. And the low cost of $15/person means you can bring your whole council! Not sure in which region your school is located? Check the region map here. Member schools are also welcome to attend a workshop in a region other than their own if a date or location is more preferable.

Dates for the 2021-22 school year are:

  • Region 1: October 30 at Mechanicsville HS, 9:00am - 12:00pm
  • Region 2: November 20 hosted by Oscar Smith HS 10:00am - 2:00 pm
  • Region 3: November 6 hosted by Courtland High School, 8:00am - 11:00am
  • Region 4: December 11 at Battlefield HS, 9:00am - 3:00pm
  • Regions 5-6-7-8: November 6 at Buffalo Gap HS, 10:00am -2:00pm
