New requirement for coaches and officials: Beginning with the 2017-18 membership year, all coaches and officials are required to complete the Safe Sport certification provided by the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) prior to purchasing their USAW coach's membership. This is in addition to the required background screening every other season for individuals who are 18 years old and older.
|USAW Safe Sport Policy||Safe Sport Certification online course (there is no fee to take this course)|
Note: Club and Event directors must have a current USAW coach's membership before club charters and event sanctions are submitted to USAW.It takes approximately 24 hours for USAW's membership system to be updated with current background screening approvals and Safe Sport certification completion.
