All junior coaches must be IMPACT-certified before they can participate in practices or placed on a team roster for tournaments. This is currently a one-time requirement, so returning coaches are not required to attend each year. IMPACT Clinics covers the risk management issues, legal duties and ethics of coaching, drill design, USAV insurance, skill learning research, techniques and team systems, and much more - all annually updated to the latest information. The Delta Region offers on-site IMPACT training to Delta Region coaches at $20 (which includes a hard-copy of the current IMPACT manual-$16 value) in a single 4-hour clinic at various sites around our Region. Held completely in a classroom setting, IMPACT training helps coaches understand the great responsibility they are undertaking and is a worthwhile use of coaches' time.
If you are unable to attend one of the in-person clinics hosted by the Delta Region, Visit the IMPACT Webinar site at www.usavolleyball.org for online clinic dates. Current price is $50 (increases during the season with additional late registration fees) and it requires you commit to TWO consecutive 2.5 hour nights at your computer (generally 6:30-9:00 p.m. Central time) IMPACT is not currently available on an on-demand basis.
Delta Region Officiating Clinics
On-Demand/On-Line Training for Officials (including Referees, Scorers, Line Judges & Libero Tracker) now available through USA Volleyball as a part of your Delta Region membership. Click here for Details on the types of clinics available and how to complete your officiating certification.
Club Clinic: Conducted for the club to teach members the current rules and officiating techniques. This is the first step in helping juniors and adults of Junior Clubs to become certified to officiate matches in the Delta Region. Only a Delta Region certified trainer may conduct club clinics. If a certified club trainer is not available, approved region clinicians will be available to conduct clinics. This may require participants to travel to attend a combined clinic with other clubs and to pay a fee of $10 per participant-per clinic (a maximum of $150 per club—per referee clinic or score clinic).Club clinics will satisfy the Junior and Provisional Club clinic portion of the certification process. Individuals certified through this process are not allowed to work matches for pay.
Regional Clinic: Conducted annually for individuals desiring to complete the entire process to become a certified Provisional or Regional official. Any official that wants to work matches for pay must attend a Regional Clinic each year. Regional clinics will be given in great detail, and last significantly longer than club clinics.
