Changes to Coach Education Requirements
Effective January 1, 2013
Any coach registering as a new coach after January 1, 2013 will be required to complete and pass the on line test Foundations 101 prior to be granted coaching status. This will be set up much like Athlete Protection Training. A coach will need to be in the membership database first to allow access to the test. The format of this test will mimic the Athlete Protection Training where the coach will review on line videos that will be linked to chapter questions after each video and then an overall test at the end. There will be a charge of approximately $15.00 to complete this requirement with the payment being made on line.
Phase 2 of this coaching requirement will not be available until sometime in May 2013. This portion must also be completed for all new coaches. The format of the test will follow the same procedure as listed above with a cost of approximately $25.00 to be paid on line. In addition this will be a two part test with the second portion directed to the Rules and Regulations of USA Swimming.
