FAQs

Will I have to stay at my computer the whole day?

Not if you don’t want to! You have the option to come and go as you please. You can choose the sessions that most interest you and take a break whenever you need, or participate from start to finish. You can even close your computer and exit the clinic, then rejoin at a later time. Whatever works best for you. 

Will there be breaks?

Absolutely! There will be breaks for bathroom trips, snacks and moving around between sessions, along with a 30-minute break for lunch. 

How do I watch the bonus sessions?

The bonus sessions will be available to watch online after the clinic ends. It usually only takes a few days for all of the videos to be posted, and we'll send an email out to let you know when they're ready. They'll be added directly into your account and you can access them by going to Clinic Video from your account dashboard.

What level of coach is the clinic meant for?

The clinic and topics were designed for coaches of 12-15U club teams, but the principles, drills and strategies that will be demonstrated would be useful to any coach in the club setting.

What if I'm new to coaching?

Awesome! This clinic is a great way to kick off your coaching journey. You’ll walk away with dozens of useful ideas, drills and strategies you can implement with you team, along with a network of fellow coaches you can tap into in the future. 

What if I’ve been coaching for decades? 

Fantastic! This is a great opportunity for you to refresh your coaching methods and pick up some new ideas from successful coaches at your level.

When will the clinicians address questions?

John Dunning will be doing a Q&A during the 30-minute lunch break. Then after the clinic ends, the clinicians will be hosting a 45-minute session to answer the rest of your questions about the clinic and beyond. 

Can I participate if I’m not in the U.S.?

Definitely! Coaches all over the world have different methods of coaching and teaching, and this is a great format to learn new ideas. You just need to be able to be on your computer between 9:00am and 4:15pm Pacific Standard Time (UTC−08:00) on January 9, 2022.

What technology do I need in order to participate?

All you need is a device that can connect to Zoom (computer, tablet, etc.). The best experience will be provided by a large screen so you can see everything happening on the court. You can join from your smartphone, but the screen might not be big enough to give you a good view.

Is there a discount for groups? 

There aren’t any group discounts available at this time, but AOC Premium members save 10% on tickets. If you have a special situation where you’d like to purchase tickets for 10 or more coaches, please email us at volleyball@theartofcoaching.com.
