We believe it is important for our coaches to receive certification training in order to provide them with the tools needed to help our athletes have a positive sports experience. By taking the online certification training, coaches will learn best practices when approaching sports training with their athletes. Certification is required for certain coaching situations and is recommended for all coaches.
