National Elite Coach's Training Program - Gold Medal Squared Ignite provides GMS training to all our coaches including our assistants. This ensures that your athlete is trained by the best! We are the ONLY club in Arizona that is GMS Certified. Mike Wall, USA Men's Volleyball Assistant Coach, leads these clinics! Since Ignite began, GMS has been the cornerstone of our program. It’s built on sound principles and their methods are proven. Because we are lifetime students of the game, we don’t teach the ways of the past. GMS’s program stays on top of current methods as well as constantly doing research to make sure that we’re coaching the best way possible for our athletes. Here’s more from their site: Gold Medal Squared is the collaborative effort of some of our countries most successful and experienced coaches. Dr. Carl McGown, Dr. Marv Dunphy, Dr. Doug Beal, Jim McLaughlin and the rest of our staff bring over 300 years of combined coaching experience. Our staff has been at the top of the game at every level: High School, Club, Collegiate, Professional Foreign Leagues, and International competition. Gold Medal Squared Volleyball Camps and Clinics was created with one goal in mind – improving the quality of volleyball players and volleyball coaches. We believe that coaching is a lifelong education. Through years of refinement, we have developed a unique process by which volleyball coaches are given the necessary tools to teach the skills to their players, to understand the tactics of the game, to make better use of limited time with their players, and to develop winning programs. This process is based on studied scientific principles from human kinetics, organizational behavior, statistics, and psychology. Thousands of volleyball coaches world-wide have been through the Gold Medal Squared program – many with literally life-altering results. We have had innumerable volleyball coaches tell us how much more they enjoy coaching, how much more success and satisfaction they are achieving, and what a big change the Gold Medal Squared process has had on their lives.
