NOTE – As of the 2021 USAV Season, IMPACT is taken online through the USAV Academy so all coaches across the country will receive a consistent IMPACT clinic experience. Coaches that need IMPACT will be auto-enrolled in the course when they choose a “Coach” membership option each season.
Coaching Education Policy – ALL Coaches, please review the information linked on this page about our Coaches Education Policy!
REMINDER – Coaches will not be added to a Team’s Tournament Roster until they are IMPACT/CAP certified, are SafeSport certified, agree to all USAV waivers, and passes the USAV Background Screen. So all coaches must complete these requirements BEFORE their team’s FIRST tournament! Coaches will be auto-enrolled in either the Core SafeSport or Refresher SafeSport course that they need each season when they choose a Coach membership.
IMPACT CLINICS (ALL ONLINE NOW):
- USA Volleyball IMPACT On-Demand Clinic – Coaches will be auto-enrolled in IMPACT if they need it when they register for a coach membership.
