All coaches registered with USA Volleyball are required to be IMPACT certified. Below are notes and information regarding this certification process.  

Option 1 to get certified:  USA Volleyball IMPACT On-Demand Course - Free

USA Volleyball offers an On Demand IMPACT course that can be taken any time via their website. Users can start, stop and save. IMPACT On-Demand is FREE to current USAV members.  Participants must have a valid USAV membership.  Non-members will incur a $100 fee.  Click here to get more information.

Option 2 to get certified:  IMPACT Equivalency

In some cases, coaches who've taken ASEP or NFHS courses are eligibile to have those completed courses applied toward an IMPACT certification for USA Volleyball.  The only NFHS course that is eligible to be applied toward equivalency is the "Coaching Volleyball" course.  This process is handed entirely by the USAV Coaching Education Department.  In order to see if your coursework qualifies, please e-mail and include your name, USAV membership number, and proof of completion of the courses you wish to have applied to your IMPACT certification. Do not send this information to the CEVA office.  For more information on this process, click here


Coaches who wish to take their education to the next level can take part in a CAP Clinic from USA Volleyball.  There are three levels of CAP certification that provide more in-depth and technical levels of education. 

For more information about CAP certifications, please visit the page on the USAV website


Beach coaches also have the opportunity to further their education through USA Volleyball's Beach CAP certification.  For more information, visit this page on the USAV website.
