All coaches in the Puget Sound Region must hold an IMPACT Certification before they are eligible to coach a team in any USAV sanctioned competition. Receipt of the USAV CAP Certification, is sufficient to meet this requirement.

The Increased Mastery and Professional Application of Coaching Theory (IMPACT) clinics are designed to introduce coaches new to USA Volleyball to basic coaching theories. In addition, the clinics are an introduction to USA Volleyball and cover valuable topics such as insurance, liability, sports medicine and risk management.
