Coaches’ Education:

The Old Dominion Region believes that every player deserves a coach trained in the current techniques and safety issues of the sport. All Head and Assistant Coaches are required to have, at a minimum, current IMPACT certification in order to coach in the Region. An IMPACT certification now grants lifetime coaching eligibility in the Old Dominion Region. Although USAV IMPACT certification does not expire, the Region believes it is important for coaches to stay current in the field. The Region, in the future, may require coaches to re-certify using continuing education.  Attending an IMPACT clinic, CAP clinic, or other approved HP Coaching Development Clinic at any time will extend a coach’s eligibility.  The region feels that it is important for a coach to be exposed to a variety of ideas and concepts.
