Article 502.4.5 "All coaches of USA Swimming clubs, including seasonal clubs, who register for the first time as a coach member, shall complete coaches' education required by USA Swimming prior to receiving their coach membership for the second year."
This educational requirement is in addition to the safety requirements described under Safety Curriculum. Within 4-12 weeks after the LSC Membership Chair processes the membership application, first year coaches will receive a packet containing information about the educational requirement and an order form for course materials. Upon successful completion of the requirement, the coach will receive a letter from the American Swim Coaches Association (ASCA). The letter must be shown to the LSC Membership Chair prior to registering for the second year of coaching with USA Swimming.
