1. What is the timeline of the Coaches' Clinic?
The Clinic will start Thursday evening and go through Saturday evening. Please plan on arriving in Colorado Springs Thursday afternoon and departing anytime Sunday. The schedule of the clinic typically alternates from gym sessions, featuring live, on-court instruction at the Olympic Training Center and classroom presentation sessions. Throughout the clinic there are opportunities for Small Group discussions, led by top HP & National Team Coaches to delve further into topics. Participants have the opportunity to personally meet, discuss and ask questions of both their fellow participants and the presenters throughout the clinic during transition periods and meals.
2. Can I request a roommate if I am staying on-complex?
When you submit your travel itinerary, you will be asked if you have a preference of who you would like to room with. We will do our best to honor your requests, but we cannot make any guarantees. There will be 2-3 people per room in the dorms at the OTC, and unless you request a roommate, you will be paired with another coach or coaches of the same gender.
3. What if I don't get my Travel Itinerary submitted by the due date?
The OTC shuttle will only pick up coaches from the Colorado Springs Airport ONLY who have submitted their travel itinerary prior to the due date. If your itinerary is not submitted, you will be responsible for finding your own transportation to/from the OTC.
4. What are the topics that will be covered at this year's Clinic?
The topics and presenters for the Clinic have not yet been determined. Stay tuned for updates!
5. What do I need to print in advance and bring with me to the Clinic?
The schedule of events for the clinic will be available and easily accessible through the Yapp Coaches' Clinic App (see Schedule on the left), so you will not be required to print or bring any clinic materials with you, outside of the required documentation required for registration. Materials will be provided to coaches as needed.
6. May I capture video recordings of the sessions at the Clinic?
The complete footage of the HP Coaches' Clinic will be professionally captured, edited and distributed to all attendees via USAV Academy following the conclusion of the clinic, so no additional video capture is needed since you will have access to the complete footage from every session. Note that the footage is only available to participants of the clinic, and is not available to be shared with non-attendees.
7. Where can I park on the OTC complex?
Free parking is available in most areas on the OTC complex for participants of the clinic, most notably near the dormitories and outside of Sports Center 1 and the West Wing. Note that you will have access to park your vehicle on complex and may enter and exit at your own discretion once you have received credentials for the event. All of the sessions are within walking distance to the dormitories and dining hall.
8. Do you provide transportation from Denver International Airport (DIA)?
No, ground transportation is available to all coaches who are scheduled to stay on-complex for the duration of the event from and to the Colorado Springs Airport ONLY. If you wish to fly into the Denver airport, you will be responsible for arranging your own transportation to the Olympic Training Center, or to the Colorado Springs Airport via shuttle for pick-up.
9. Is the Clinic open to the public, or only to coaches in the High Performance Pipeline?
Registration is open to all U.S. citizens, and also to foreign participants with approval. Coaches of all ages, levels and experience are welcome to attend.
