The Green Coach Certification/Exam is whole and complete on its own. The exam has 50 questions and each question has an attached document or video to refer to for the answer. The coach will need 100% to pass the exam. After the coach has submitted the exam, the wrong answers will appear on the screen to retry. This process will repeat until a 100% score is attained (NOTE: if you need to leave the exam BEFORE you have finished, to save your progress you must submit the incomplete exam. This will be saved in your profile for you to return to later). When you are ready to take the exam, click here to log into your USA Boxing Member Profile.

Transitioning from the Legacy Levels to the new American Development Model (ADM)

For the past few years there have been no elevations from one level to the next through the old system (which we have renamed the Legacy Levels). The Legacy Levels will not disappear from your membership card with the new ADM Color system. If you were a level 1, 2, 3 or 4 you can maintain your level by passing the Green Coach exam. Here is a brief distinction of each of the new ADM levels:

Green

  • Entry level coaches working with new boxers
  • Online certification and test

Bronze

  • Entry level to intermediate coaches
  • Coaching development, novice and club boxers

Silver

  • Intermediate to advanced coaches
  • Coaching developing athletes who are preparing for and competing at regional and national tournaments

Gold

  • Advanced and international coaches
  • Coaching high-performance athletes that are on the national team or eligible for national talent pool

All USA Boxing members have access to the coach education materials and resources (PDF documents and videos) through the USOPC Mobile Coach App (instructions can be found HERE.
