Coaches Passes will only be given to coaches approved by their State Chairman for the Junior & 16U National Championships. They MUST also fulfill the requirements below.
All coaches that wish to gain access to the competition floor to coach athletes must have a current USA Wrestling Leader Membership Card. All USA Wrestling Leader Membership Cards MUST be attained prior to the event, due to mandatory background checking. For a Wrestling Leader Membership Card, please click HERE. PLEASE ALLOW UP TO 30 DAYS FOR COMPLETION OF USAW LEADER MEMBERSHIP/BACKGROUND CHECK PROCESS.
At USA Wrestling Regional and National Championships, coaching credentials will only be issued to Wrestling Leader members at least 18 years of age who meet the appropriate NCEP certification requirement. Minors accompanying credentialed coaches will not be allowed on the competition floor.
In an effort to accommodate coaches at the Junior & 16U National Championships, minors accompanying credentialed coaches will be allowed access to the head table area where they will be supervised by a Wrestling Leader member of USA Wrestling (individual has completed SafeSport training and completed mandatory criminal background screening). The credentialed coach is expected to return to the head table upon the conclusion of the match he/she is coaching to reunite with his/her child.
This accommodation is only in effect at the Junior & 16U National Championships and may not be provided again.
We appreciate your assistance in maintaining a safe environment for all members of USA Wrestling.
How do I earn a Copper or Bronze level coaches certification?
Once a coach has their Wrestling Leader Membership with USA Wrestling, they can take the Copper or Bronze level coaches certifications through their membership profile at www.USAWmembership.com.
To purchase, access the course options under the top tab for MANAGE, followed by COACH CERTIFICATIONS in the drop-down.
ADD the desired course to the shopping cart and then check out and pay the course fee.
Once the fee is paid, courses can be accessed under the MY COURSES tab.
As soon as a course is finished, the coach’s profile is updated automatically in our system.
We will send the coach a free new membership card that reflects the certification in about 3 to 4 weeks.
For coaches who need proof of certification sooner, they’ll be able to re-print a membership card from their profile reflecting all current certifications. Any online registration system will see the coach’s certifications as well.
Coaches who have earned both Copper and Bronze level certifications automatically qualify to start Silver level tasks. These tasks can be accessed from the same course area as the Copper and Bronze program. Some really great opportunities at this level!
We hope to work with you throughout the range of our National Coaches Education Program (NCEP) opportunities. Let us know how we can support your coach education journey!
