Since 2004, the USA Volleyball High Performance Department has featured the annual Coaches’ Clinic as a way to bring together great coaching minds to network and share the most current, pertinent and critical issues in the sport. Past speakers have included the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Team coaches, international coaches, USAV High Performance Pipeline Coaches and USAV Region HP Coaches. Topics vary annually and have covered ideas such as the men’s versus women’s game, sports psychology, uses of technology and drill ideas.

"I contribute the sudden change [in my perspective] to my experience at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. I have learned so much from CAP II and the High Performance Coaches' Clinic. Thank you to all of the USAV Staff for putting together such a great event."

-Wayne Yamamoto, CAP II Certified Coach & 2015 Attendee - San Francisco, California

Past demonstrators have included USA National Team members and All-Americans. The Clinic has been held at the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center (see the picture below to see what you've been missing!) since its inception, giving the clinic an intimate setting for coaches in attendance. Sessions are designed to incorporate participant discussion in examining the decision-making process and the on-court execution to help create their own strategies and tactics for given situations.
