  • Non-Profit Organizations – Head Coach and Club President (or President’s designee)
  • Institutionally-Owned Clubs – Head Coach and his/her supervisor (or supervisor’s designee).
  • Privately or Coach-Owned Clubs – Head Coach and Owner. If Head Coach is the owner, 2nd participant is designated by the Head Coach.

The 101 online course takes about one hour to complete and is free of charge to all participants. All club leaders of new and existing clubs are encouraged to take advantage of this educational opportunity.

Note that prior to the second year of club registration, club representatives are still required to attend an in-person CLBMS, now called CLBMS 201. Find a 201 course here.
