Re-certifying your USAW Level 1 or 2:

You must renew your coaching certification annually. If you are renewing a Level 1 certification, you must complete a short re-certification quiz. If you’re renewing a Level 2 certification there is no quiz requirement.

Note, coach memberships are charged $99 annually and include the $30 re-certification fee, which, in the past, was collected separately from the $69 annual membership fee. Members of a different type that is not coach (athlete, referee, etc.) who hold a coaching certifications will be charged $30 annually to renew their certification. 

All coaches renewing a certification must also be a current member of USAW in good standing. Your membership profile will show you when your membership and certification renewal dates are due. You will also receive automated reminders from us when the time to renew comes. For more information on membership options and pricing, please visit here.

To renew your coaching certification, you need to login to your membership profile and click the “Renew Certification” link found in the left toolbar under Membership tab.  

Please note that National, International and Senior International coaches do not have to take a recertification exam or pay a renewal fee.  However, in addition to a current membership, the SafeSport certification and a background screen must be current in order to have the recertification approved.
