Attend in person or online!
The volleyball world has had to adapt to the many challenges of COVID-19, and our 2021 clinics are adapting as well. This year, we're offering you two different ways to attend AOC's world-class coaching clinics – in person or online. We're also changing up the content of each clinic. Instead of touching on all parts of the game, each day of a clinic will focus on a narrower set of topics so that the presenting coaches will be able to explore them fully and give you an in-depth understanding of how to best coach the technique, strategy and mentality behind those aspects of the game. Click into the clinics below to find the dates, locations and topics that suit your needs, either in person or online this spring!
Option 1: Attend in person
For the best possible experience, nothing compares to being in the gym and watching coaches interact with athletes right in front of you. We’re limiting the number of in-person attendees to comply with local COVID restrictions, so claim your spot in the gym today.
Option 2: Attend online
Can’t be in the gym? Join online! You can watch from anywhere, save money on travel and know you’re safe from COVID, all while learning the same tips and strategies. (Plus your couch is likely a comfier seat.) Online viewing also makes attending 2+ clinics a breeze!
Get your questions answered
No matter how you attend the clinic, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with our expert coaches and ask them questions about your own team. In-person attendees can chat during breaks, while online attendees will have a dedicated Q&A at the end of the day.
Take away a clinic handbook
Both in person and virtual attendees will receive a handbook for note-taking during the clinic. Full of notes and drills from the presenting coaches, it’s the perfect way to keep track of all of the new tips and coaching strategies you pick up throughout the clinic.
What makes AOC coaching clinics special?
The experience and expertise of our clinicians (Click for more details)AOC's three founding coaches (and lead clinicians) have over 40 years of coaching experience each, plus 12 NCAA titles and 3 Olympic Games between them. Add top college, high school, club and national team coaches into the mix and you get to learn the secrets behind some of the most successful coaches in the game today.
The interactivity between clinicians and attendeesOur clinicians create a comfortable climate where you can ask them questions about your own team and chat with them one-on-one throughout the clinic. AOC clinicians have a wide range of coaching styles and personalities, so you get the opportunity to pick the brains of an assortment of exceptional coaches with different points of view.
The camaraderie between cliniciansThere's a sense of team that you get from attending an AOC clinic. You'll see five or six coaches from various levels coming from all over the country to share differing philosophies, techniques, drills and tactics with the main goal of helping you become a more confident coach and arming you with a plethora of new ideas to try with your team. Oh, and you'll also see lots of smiles and laughter. Our clinicians tend to have a blast presenting together and sharing their knowledge with you!
The fundamental belief that there's no "one-size-fits-all" way to teach the gameAOC clinicians share the knowledge they’ve acquired over years of coaching while emphasizing that there are many ways to be a good coach and what works for one coach may not work for you and your team. There’s a lot of room for creativity and tinkering in coaching, so every AOC clinic provides a steady flow of good ideas from expert sources that each coach can use to chart their own path.
