IMPACT & SafeSport

To view current IMPACT and SafeSport status for all registered adults in the region, please click here. List is accurate as of 9/1/17.

IMPACT Course:

USA Volleyball now offers the mandatory IMPACT course as an online webinar, available for you to take any time, anywhere (with an Internet connection). All coaches must take the IMPACT course to be eligible to coach. You must have a USAV webpoint account to be able to access the IMPACT course. For 2018, coaches will not be able to be placed on a roster in webpoint if they are not IMPACT and SafeSport certified.

All coaches are required to take IMPACT in order to be placed on a roster. Cost is $40, region pays $20 and at sign up, coach pays $20.

Click here to access the IMPACT course. You will need to login to your USAV account, so make sure to register or renew your registration for USAV first if you have not yet done so.

From the date of registration, a coach has a time limit of 60 days to complete the course and pass the exam. Should a coach register for this discounted IMPACT OnDemand course and not complete their course prior to the 60 day deadline, the student will be responsible for paying the $25 fee directly to the USAV-Education department to re-open their course for an additional 60 day time period.

Registration for these courses may be utilized at any time between now and Sept 1, 2018.

Any coach taking the course needs to register himself/herself individually.

Safe Sport Training 

For 2018, SafeSport is required for any adult wishing to be listed on a junior team roster. This includes directors, coaches, and parents who wish to be listed on the roster.

The SafeSport course will be accessible starting October 1, 2018. The link will be posted here and sent to club directors.

Please also note that by default, anyone who completed IMPACT or Beach IMPACT between September 2014 and August 2017 has received the SafeSport certification in Webpoint.
