General Information


The USA Volleyball Coaching Accreditation Program (USAV-CAP) provides an opportunity for professional preparation and advancement for the volleyball coach. The curriculum addresses the essential topics for the volunteer and the internationally aspiring coach. Each course level includes a special emphasis on building the foundation and creation of a well-prepared coach. This knowledge coupled with hands-on coaching experience creates an ideal learning experience.


Any player who enters a volleyball program has the right to expect quality coaching and instruction. USA Volleyball's CAP program strives to present an on-going, progressive format in which coaches at all levels receive the most current information available on volleyball.

USAV-CAP instruction is based on sound principles in the areas of skills development, tactical systems, physical training, motor learning, sports psychology and administration.

USAV-CAP is intended to provide coaching standards for those administrators employing coaches to have a valid means for measuring the qualifications of a given volleyball coach. It is a continuous education process due to the dynamic nature of sport and technology.

The four solid corners of the program are integrity, education, commitment and enthusiasm. These are the qualities of any successful coach and program.
