The coaching certification and training program is designed to better prepare individuals for the challenges associated with coaching teams at all levels of the sport. During the 2011-12 season, a USA Curling Coach Development team redesigned the framework of the program to focus on four coaching communities: youth, junior, junior national, and national. Requirements for certification in each of these areas can be found in the links on this page.
A coaches association has also been developed to provide participants with the opportunity for dialogue with other coaches from around the country. The association serves as the primary entry point for individuals who wish to be recognized as certified curling coaches in the United States.
