New Coach and Non Athlete Requirement Reminder

As we approach the end of 2019, I just want to remind everyone of the new changes for 2020.  All non athlete members will need to update their concussion training before January 1, 2020.  Michigan law now requires that the concussion course is taken once every 3 years.  Please email your concussion certificates to 


Coach members need to take the new Coach's Advantage Tutorial (CAT) through the USA Swimming website.  If these courses, as well as your other certifications, are not up to date, you will be denied access to the pool deck at swim meets.  Please do not wait until the last minute.  Check your DECK PASS and make sure that all of your certificaitons are current. 


If you were a new coach in 2019, you will have to complete Foundations of Coaching 201 and Foundations of Coaching Rules and Regulations for your 2020 registration to be valid.  The link below will direct you to the Michgan Swimming website coach member page.   There you will find links or information for all coaching requirements.  


Board members and head coaches, please pass this informaiton on to your entire coaching staff.   


Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
