The National Youth Track Coaches Association through the USATF Coaches Advisory Committee submitted a proposal to change the USATF Youth Championships Coaches Credentialing Program Policy.
The partnership of National Youth Track Coaches Association, USATF Coaches Advisory Committee, USATF Youth Department and Coaching Education Department worked together to devise a policy that not only benefits our USATF youth coaching constituency, but also further promotes the USATF Coaching Education program. I hope that the new policy will result in more youth coaches understanding the benefit of utilizing the coaching education resources provided by USATF.
The USATF Youth Department announces revisions to the USATF Youth Championships Coaches Credentialing Program Policy. This revision is immediately effective. The USATF Youth Department in conjunction with the USATF Coaching Education Departmentencourages all coaches to take advantage of the benefits the USATF Coaches Registry Program offers. Please familiarize yourself with coaching education programs and registry requirements at www.usatf.org/programs/coaches and/or contact Matt.Rohlf@usatf.org.
Youth Championships Coaching Credentials shall be issued based upon the following criteria:
Indianapolis -- On Wednesday, USATF was notified by the United States Center for Coaching Excellence (USCCE) that its long-standing and expansive Level 1 Coaching Education Program was approved for re-accreditation following review by the National Committee for Accreditation of Coaching Education (NCACE) review panel and USCCE Board of Directors.
Upon completion of the folio review process, the Review Panel determined that Level 1 Coaching Education Program has successfully documented comprehensive program content in alignment with the National Standards for Sport Coaches (NASPE, 2006) and the NCACE Guidelines for program supervision, personnel and operations. USATF is pleased that this re-accreditation continues the “gold standard” for coaching education as both its Level 1 and Level 2 Programs are accredited by NCACE.
USATF will resume its cornerstone Level 1 Program beginning in July, offering schools live on Zoom for the first-time. Click here for more info on USATF Coaching Education Programs.
