When SPVC was formed, our goal was to provide the highest quality coaching available. We are proud to announce that over the summer we received club certification from Gold Medal Squared.
GMS is a volleyball education group founded and operated by some of the best college and Olympic coaches in the country. They host coaching clinics all over the country during the off season so coaches can expand their knowledge and stay current with the most cutting edge science in our sport.
We are proud to be able to say that roughly ninety percent of our coaching staff has been to a GMS coach’s clinic. This year alone we sent six of our coaches to the clinic at University of Washington.
By forming an experienced core of coaches and recruiting new talent and providing the best training available we feel we are well on our way to having the best coaching staff in the Puget Sound Region.
… Thanks for believing in the GMS systems to the point where you’ve pursued club certification. We’ve added your club to our “Certified Club” list on our website…Chris McGown
