Our goal as a program is to teach volleyball to all ages! We believe strongly in the principles of being fundamentally sound. "Simple is better than complex" is said a lot in our gyms! Volleyball is a great game that can be played well at all age levels. We aim to compete at a high level. We believe strongly that all of our teams be taught the same fundamentals and techniques so the athletes can grow within the sport of volleyball. We value learning and having a growth mindset. We believe that coaching is a life-long education, and all of our coaches are continuously learning and being trained by some of the top volleyball minds in the country. All of our Club Gold coaches use sound principles to help guide their decisions and teaching methods when structuring their teams. Club Gold's directors as well as our coaches have been trained with Gold Medal Squared.

Gold Medal Squared Mission Statement: "At Gold Medal Squared we love volleyball. Our mission is the pursuit of excellence in volleyball education, providing coaches and players with simple solutions, proven methods, innovation and collaboration."
Gold Medal Squared is the collaborative effort of four of the most successful and experienced coaches in the history of volleyball in the United States. Dr. Carl McGown, Dr. Marv Dunphy, Dr. Doug Beal, and Jim McLaughlin bring over 100 years of combined coaching experience, and have 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. Through years of refinement, we have developed a unique system where 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 system 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 system has had on them and their outlook on volleyball.
