Cheerleading Coaches

Coaching is critical to the success of our organization.  We have been very fortunate to have many great coaches step forward to lead our teams both assisting and as head coaches. 

There is always a need and room for more coaching.  If you are interested in coaching, you will need to submit Act 33 Clearance and complete online concussion awareness training for consideration.

Steps Required To Coach:

Complete Cheerleading Coaches Concussion Test: (45 mins).  http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/Training/index.html

***** NOTE: You must PRINT the certificate at the end of the test.  Saving the image as a PDF does not work.  You should keep the printed copy in your coaches folder.  You will also need to scan the printed certificate or take a photo of the certificate to be uploaded as part of applying.  A cell phone photo of your computer screen is a safe back-up should you have a problem printing.  The certificate will be valid ONLY for the season/year issued and need to be updated annually.  *****
