USA Volleyball has ruled that all participating coaches must become IMPACT Certified. IMPACT stands for Increased Mastery and Professional Application of Coaching Theory. Once certified, a renewal is not necessary from year to year.
The primary IMPACT goal is to help all coaches understand and become well-skilled in the awesome responsibility and incredible opportunity they have to influence young people positively through the sport of volleyball. This course is an offshoot of the Coaching Accreditation Program (CAP), which is under the auspices of the USA Volleyball branch of Educational Programs and Services.
WEVA would like to assist all coaches in becoming responsible coaches and to develop a clearer understanding of their responsibility and opportunity. The IMPACT clinic is now completed entirely on-line. In-region clinics are no longer being conducted. The WEVA
education department is working on new clinics designed to teach more actual coaching techniques.
WEVA requires that ALL NEW coaches attend the IMPACT course on-line, whether or not they plan to participate in the Junior Olympic Championships. The course must be completed prior to coaches becoming eligible to be on a roster.
