World-Class Volleyball

Coaching Clinics

The Best Volleyball Coaches Clinic, Period.

Our goal is to change your life as a coach. If you aren't absolutely blown away and inspired by our clinics, we will refund your tuition. It's our guarantee!

Invigorate Your

Coaching Soul

Our volleyball coaching clinics are designed for coaches who are training athletes at all levels of the sport, from young beginners to seasoned professionals. If you're new to coaching volleyball this is without question the most effective way for you to get started, and if you've been coaching for 30 years, we'll still teach you some new tricks.

Our Clinic Staff

You will not find better teachers when it comes to relating to your level of coaching. While many of our clinicians have coached at the highest levels, including the Olympic Games, we have also spent thousands of hours coaching at the juniors level. We have been living in your world for over 30 years.

Learn By Doing

"I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand". Attendees at our clinics can participate in drills, score-keeping, and other on-court activities which further enhance learning. We allow you the chance to experience much of what your athletes go through when you take the material back to them.

Coaching Principles

We believe that coaching principles are liberating, not restrictive. Having sound, research based coaching principles allows us to build great systems around the abilities of our players. We rely on science, research and mountains of data to develop our principles rather than following popular fads or trends.

Our Volleyball Clinics in Action

The Science of Coaching

Our foundation is based on sound principles, science and motor learning

Science Drives our Methods

For over 30 years we have relied heavily on science to help develop our coaching philosophy. Whether it's hiring statisticians to help us determine the most important skills, or combing through thousands of data points to help our teams improve by 1 percent, science is a foundational component to our coaching clinic curriculum. We also believe that no science is settled science. As the game evolves, and as we learn ourselves, we continue to refine, tweak and adjust our coaching methods in an effort to get better.

The Science of Motor Learning

Motor learning is a change, resulting from practice or experience, in the capability for responding. It often involves improving the smoothness and accuracy of movements and is obviously necessary for complicated movements such as passing, spiking, blocking etc. At our coaching clinics we walk you through how to implement the science of motor learning in to your every day practices. A deeper understanding of the motor learning concepts will drastically simplify the way you coach your athletes.

Make Your Own Damn Chart!

This was one of Carl McGowns favorite thing to say at our coaching clinics. The ideas we present to you at our clinics are wonderful, foundational ideas that will guide you through your seasons. However, not all leagues, genders or teams are created equal. There's very few absolutes in coaching. That said, we will encourage you (in a much nicer way than Carl) to keep your own data and learn what is happening at your level of play. Gathering some simple data can have a huge impact on your decisions as a coach.
