All coaches registered with USA Volleyball are required to be IMPACT & SafeSport certified. Below are notes and information regarding this certification process.
USA Volleyball offers an On Demand IMPACT course that can be taken any time via their website. Users can start, stop and save. New for 2018-2019 - IMPACT On-Demand is FREE to current USAV members. Participants must have a valid 2018-2019 membership. Non-members will incur a $100 fee. Click here to get more information. Login to Webpoint and go to the "USAV Volleyball Events" menu on the left hand side of the page. Go to "USAV Coaching Clinics" then register for "IMPACT". To access IMPACT after registering click the red "USAV Academy" button on the lower left hand side of the screen.
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 email@example.com 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
Volleyball athletes have a great sense of self-worth, demonstrate better collaboration skills and maintain healthier peer relationships. Unfortunately, sports, including volleyball can also be a high-risk environment for misconduct, including physical and sexual abuse. All forms of misconduct are intolerable and in direct conflict with the values of USA Volleyball.
Along with all USOC National Governing Bodies, USA Volleyball has adopted the SafeSport program as required education for members. CEVA requires all adults affiliated with a junior program to take the SafeSport training. This includes all Club Directors, Club Administrators, Head & Assistant Coaches, Team Reps, Chaperones, Officials, etc.
