•  Beginning and Intermediate Coaching Clinics By the Gateway Region

We are presently looking for sites to run beginning and intermediate coaching clinics.   The beginning clinics include teaching the basics while the intermediate clinics get into offensive/defensive systems and play sets. Both clinics include a clinic handout, drill demos and hands on training.

Sites need to have a minimum of one volleyball court (preferably 2) and a seating area (bleachers, chairs, etc...) - we bring the instructors, balls and demonstrators. If you are interested in hosting a clinic, please contact Nicki Werner at the Region office at 314-849-1221 or via email at  We can run one for your group alone or open it up to all comers.  Please call if you have any questions.
