As interested and involved as you are, you really should do the Impact course, and you'll probably want to do the Level 1 later. It may not be the absolute best thing that you ever did to improve your coaching, but it's a step in that direction.
USAV information can be found at www.usvolleyball.org. I think your region is Gateway, and here's their info:

If I remember correctly IMPACT was more the fundamental does and don'ts of coaching. Things like how to treat players and how not to treat players, appropriate and inappropriate behavior, things like that. CAP I actually gets more into the actual coaching aspect of it. Things like fundamental skills, how to teach skills, drills, strategy, player & team development are more the focus of the CAP I. It dives into the current school of thought in regard to coaching. IMPACT is more stagnant in it's course material. Really, anyone can benefit from the CAP clinics, it is not just directed at H.S. and advanced coaches. Everyone should be able to take quite a bit away and apply in real-life type situations.
Nearly all governing bodies require some type of basic coaching class/clinic. IMPACT is required of anyone who is coaching in USAV. There are plenty of IMPACT clinics in the KC area. Check the website above. There probably will not be any offered until later in the fall, probably after the fall H.S. and college season is over. The IMPACT clinic will cost you about $25.00 to attend; that includes being certified and a textbook you get to keep. CAP is considerably more expensive and will require you to travel to wherever it is at. There is an at home CAP I certification offered where you can do most of it from your home but you still have to attend several hours of training wherever the clinic is held, but the full CAP clinic takes an entire weekend.

As someone who has done all the beginning courses, has vast playing experience and some coaching experience
I have taken the Following:
USAV Impact Training (now required by USA Volleyball in order to coach Club)
ASEP's Coaching Principles & Sports First Aid (USAV equivalent to Impact)
here is my take... Impact is a pretty much a CYA course on Ethics, Do's & don'ts of Coaching, Coach/Player Interaction and
the benefits of USAV Training.
CAP I teaches in depth skills and knowledge for coaching. Although it can be used at all levels, its geared toward the Higher
aged youth brackets (14U and above). The topics and instructions are top notch and detailed. It touches fundamentals and
in direct skills related to the sport. ** I took a lot more away from this than I did ASEP or Impact
ASEP bridges the GAP between the two. Its more of an overall generalized coaching program and not sport specific, but does
related to all sports with examples from all sports during the course. I would also highly recommend this. I Only took this course
as a certification requirement to Coach witihin the High School s in my state of residence. **I took more away from this that I did Impact.
