GMS Club Certification Program

Having well trained coaches is arguably the single most important part of running and maintaining a successful volleyball club. Knowing that your athletes will be trained using a proven and lasting methodology is a strong attraction to both kids and their parents. There’s no better investment than educating your staff!

To that end, we have created GMS Club Certification. The requirements are:

  • 80% of the coaches in the club have attended a GMS Coaching Clinic
  • The 12 and under, 17s, and 18s coaches MUST have attended a GMS Coaching Clinic
  • The club designates a representative to oversee training and to ensure proper teaching methods and training philosophy
  • GMS will list your club as certified on our website. We ask that you also place our “GMS Certified” logo on your club website as well.

Most clubs host a Private Coaches Clinic that can be custom built to fit the needs of your staff. These events typically run Friday evening through Sunday. If you are interested in becoming a GMS certified club, please email us at for more information.
