Education Weekend Draws Raves!

Over 80 coaches from Arizona and beyond attended the Region’s Education weekend November 3-5th and many began the process of earning their Coaches Accrediation Program levels I and II.

Friday started with a Coaches clinic at the Tempe YMCA with John Kessel. Nearly 20 coaches attended and learned from one of USA Volleyball’s best teachers.

Friday night was led by Robert Brown as he gave his class the insights to VCAP, the strength and conditioning portion of the weekend. With several of the coaches in attendence doing the drills and skills required of their atheltes in VCAP, a good time was had by all.

Saturday morning began the CAP courses. John Kessel, Diana Cole, Stu Sherman and Bill Neville spent the next two days dazzling the CAP classes with insights, stories, theories and demonstrations.

May I please have a copy of the CD that John mentioned? I really enjoyed the video clips and would like to have them available to show parents if the need ever presents itself.

While the weekend was long, the organization, presentations by the Cadre, food and activities flow was AWESOME and made the two days go by quickly. I was actually very surprised when the IMPACT Clinic was over, I felt like my players after an especially fun and productive practice and I caught myself saying, "Really? Is it over already? More, more, more!!!"

I had practice last night and my teams really enjoyed the new elements that I added following my inspirational, exciting and fun weekend!!!!

Thanks for bringing such an incredible opportunity so close to home!!!!

Best regards,


The weekend wrapped up with an IMPACT course Sunday night for 20 of the Region’s coaches looking to get it from the man who literally wrote the book, John Kessel himself.

Thank you for the great job hosting the recent CAP course. Superb! The hospitality and obvious passion for growing the game was obvious in every person with whom I came in contact.

Terrific job. Please convey my appreciation to any and all people that were involved.

Best regards,
Bill Neville
