Take the Green Coaching Certification Today

By Brian Taylor, USA Boxing | Sept. 05, 2019, 10:11 a.m. (ET)

Take USA Boxing’s Green coaching certification program, the latest USA Boxing online introductory coaching certification, today!

The Green level is the entry level, which is an online test with immediate certification and does not require attending a clinic. The new online Green level test is very different from our previous Level I test, with videos to watch or documents to read, a very similar setup to SafeSport testing. Instructions on how to access the Green level test can be found below.

This entry level certification consist of learning topics like coaching fundamentals, the universal boxer and fundamental skills, boxer and gym safety, as well as competition structure and rules.

Coaches can begin taking the Green level course now, however, if they wish to wait until their current certification expires, they must take the green level online course once they have expired.

To elevate beyond Green to Bronze, a Green level coach must attend a clinic that is facilitated by specifically chosen and trained clinicians. These clinics will be a more hands on and practical course that will consist of a total of 16 hours of in class or boxing gym material.

With our transition to our new level stages, coaches will also keep their current number levels, which will be called their “Legacy Levels.” For those coaches who have earned their way to a Level 2, 3 or 4, they will now be a Green Legacy Level 2-4, to honor and respect the history of our longtime members. However, a coaches’ current level will not allow them to become automatic Bronze, Silver or Gold coaches, as they will have to take the clinics and progress in our new system.
