Our History

Gold Medal Squared is the collaborative effort of some of our country’s most successful and experienced volleyball coaches. Founded by the late Dr. Carl McGown in the mid-80s, our staff has been at the top of the game at every level: High School, Club, Collegiate, Professional Foreign Leagues, and International competition. Founded in 1985, we have over 35 years of experience running volleyball camps and coaching clinics worldwide.

In addition to Carl, we have been heavily influenced by several of our country’s most decorated volleyball coaches. Gold medal-winning coach Dr. Marv Dunphy, along with Dr. Doug Beal, worked alongside Carl, developing effective, proven methods that work at all levels of the game.

What We Do

Our mission is to seek out and share the most effective, up-to-date methods through our coaching clinics, summer volleyball camps, and online training platform, GMS+.

We have been running volleyball clinics for coaches and summer volleyball camps for athletes since the 1980s. Our roots are firmly grounded in the rocky mountain states where it all began. During the summer months, Carl, his assistant coaches, and his players would drive around Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, and Idaho, running camps for rural junior high and high school programs. A lot has changed since then. We are now running events throughout the United States, Canada, and Asia.


World-Class Staff

Our advisory staff at Gold Medal Squared carries on the tradition of success. With several of our current staff members winning Olympic Medals in both the Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 Olympic games, our involvement at the top of the game continues. Our staff has been a part of every Olympic Games since the 1980s.

Every member of our staff is honored and humbled to carry on the legacy that Carl McGown built. His commitment to principle-based decisions, fundamental skills, and teaching have tremendously impacted us. We will be forever grateful for his relentless pursuit of the most effective ways to coach volleyball.


A Tradition of Success

While our staff has experienced unparalleled success in the sport of volleyball, it’s our clients’ success that we are most proud of. Since our beginning, we have watched thousands upon thousands of junior high, high school, and club volleyball programs win championships, many for the first time!
