COACH SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
Effective since 1988, all coach members are required to fulfill safety training requirements as established by the USA Swimming Board of Directors. USA Swimming requires coach members to present evidence of having passed the following courses: Safety Training for Swim Coaches and CPR. First Aid is no longer required since it is incorporated in the new Safety Training for Swim Coaches online course.
From an insurance standpoint, you are no longer insured as a coach as of the date that any of your safety cards expire. You are immediately considered a non-athlete member who is no longer a coach.
A list of acceptable CPR and STSC courses is below. Taking courses that are not on this list will not be acceptable for coach membership. CPR and STSC are each valid for two years.
