A coach is one of the most influential people in a young person's life. Coaches don't just teach how to hit a ball or block a spike but how to win and lose graciously. The athletic skills young people learn from coaches may only apply for a few years, but the attitudes they develop toward themselves and others will last a lifetime.
As a role model, the coach is a teacher, leader, organizer and counselor.
Alberta Volleyball Club Coaches must meet AVA Minimum Requirements to lead our club teams.
Certification is achieved through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP).
However, Coach Education is much broader than a simple certification course. On-going professional development is always recommended. Alberta Volleyball's annual Coaches' Symposium is a great way to improve one's knowledge and network with other coaches.
Coaches have a lot on their plate- so we have developed a Resource page to provide coaches a centralized location for various forms, and Multi-media presentations.
