Coach Member Reqs

 Coach Membership Requirements

  • April 2018 Notice: This is the annual reminder that the Foundations of Coaching tests and online officials' tests will be disabled 4/15 - 4/30 to update them for this year's rulebook (tests in progress can be finished but new tests cannot be started during this time).
  • Update Feb 2016
  • Coaches can now go to and click on “Frequently Asked Questions” at the top of the screen to take them thru a step-by-step process for initiating the Safety Training for Swim Coaches online course and/or to find an instructor.
  • TO:  LSC Registration/Membership Chairs 
  • The Safe Sport Committee voted to make the Athlete Protection Training good for two years instead of one year. As a result, we have pushed all the 12/31/14 APT expiration dates to 12/31/15. 


    Effective on September 1, the APT expiration date will be based on the year that the training was taken. For example, if you complete the training anytime between January 1 and December 31, 2015, the APT expiration date will be December 31, 2017 (if completed in January, you essentially get three years). The programming for this change will not be completed by September 1. Anyone completing the APT after September 1 and until the change is made in SWIMS, will have an APT expiration date of 12/31/15. After the change is made in SWIMS, these expiration dates will be updated to12/31/16.
