Who coaches Club Moscow Volleyball?
Volleyball coaches from Moscow School District, students from the University of Idaho and WSU, other coaches from the area, and parents have coached in the past.
Each CMV coach is certified as an IMPACT coach, which is the official training program of USA Volleyball and goes through an extensive background check. Each coach also has a strong background in volleyball fundamentals and player development.
Where and when are practices held?
Practices are held in local gyms in and around Moscow in the late afternoon or evenings. There is limited gym availability in town and CMV competes for gym time with many other local sports. Every consideration is given to coaches' and players' schedules. CMV tries to have teams practice at least twice a week, and the times may vary.
What type of tournaments does CMV participate in?
Tournaments for the U12s and U14s are usually held on Saturdays, while tournaments for U16s and U18s are on Sundays, with some exceptions.
Tournaments usually begin at 8:00am and last until 4-6:00 pm. A team plays three matches in pool play, then, depending on how they did in pool play, enters either a consolation or championship bracket in single elimination play.
The majority of tournaments are held in the Spokane/North Idaho region. The regional championships are a two-day event usually held in the Tri-Cities or Spokane. More information on tournaments is on the Club Handbook page.
