BIG NEWS! Coach Certifications can now be done ONLINE!

By USA Boxing Membership Team | May 19, 2016, 4:46 p.m. (ET)

USA Boxing is happy to announce that our non-athlete members can now certify or re-certify as a coach online.  Through the efforts of John Brown, USAB President, and other dedicated volunteers and staff members, the idea we’ve had for years has finally come to fruition.  We have provided relevant exam study materials consisting of both documents and videos that are available on the USAB Coach Resource Page.  You will access the test by logging into your USA Boxing profile; so you must be a registered member first before you can take the test.  In order to pass the test, you must get 100%.  If you don’t answer all the questions correctly the first time, it will bring up only the questions you missed, until you get them all correct.

Currently, there is still only a level one certification available; there are no elevations.  But if you are already a level 2, 3, or 4, you will maintain your level by taking the online test.   Also, keep in mind that in-person clinics will still be given by your LBC, so if you’d rather attend a clinic and take the test on paper, that option is still available to you.

We think this new program will benefit many and make it easier for our new coaches to get certified and for our current coaches to get re-certified every two years!
