Coaching Youth Volleyball Training

The NYSCA Coaching Youth Volleyball section is one of the most comprehensive resources for volunteer coaches involved in youth volleyball programs.

During the sport-specific portion of the NYSCA training program volleyball coaches view the Coaching Youth Volleyball training video, which focuses on how to go about teaching many of the key fundamentals of the game to youngsters. The video is designed to help you, regardless if you are new to the sport or have coached for many years, enhance both your knowledge and teaching skills so you are better prepared to help guide every player on your team to a safe, fun and rewarding experience.


To enrich your learning experience, the NYSCA Coaching Youth Volleyball section includes the use of video instruction for demonstrations. These live-action segments are unique to our program, and they provide you with the most effective and exciting way to learn. Topics covered in this video include:

  • Warm ups
  • Setting
  • Serving
  • Passing
  • Attacking
  • Defense
  • Offensive Systems
  • Defensive Systems
  • and much more...


Lizzy Stemke - Head women's volleyball coach at the University of Georgia.

She earned All-American honors while playing for the University of Wisconsin and was a member of the U.S. National Team from 2001 to 2003.


At the conclusion of the Coaching Youth Volleyball video there is a 10-question exam featuring both True and False and multiple choice questions. Each question must be answered correctly to complete the training and obtain your membership. The questions are explained in full detail within the video and text provided and after submitting your answers you'll have an opportunity to redo any incorrect responses.


Unlike other coaching courses where you are required to write your own notes and draw your own diagrams, NYSCA has done all the work for you! The manual that accompanies our online clinic is a valuable resource for coaches at any level.

The manual is printable in PDF format for enhanced graphics.
