Please contact Mike Clayton at 719.598.8181 if you have questions regarding the online course. 

Bronze certs take 3-4 weeks to mail them to you but if you need it sooner, Coaches can print their annual membership card and it will reflect their highest coach certification listed on their profile

Please note: The process for becoming a USAW member can take up to two weeks. Be sure to secure your membership well in advance of the time you plan to take the online course for certification. Coaches who are not USAW members and who wait until the last minute (for example, they have a weekend tournament coming up in a day or two) to obtain their certification will likely find themselves ineligible to coach at that event. 

Note: Our membership years starts Sept 1 annual and always ends on Aug 31 (regardless of when you purchase your memberships).
