Do all of the coaches for our team need to be certified?

Until 2017, only one coach must be fully certified, however it must be guaranteed that this certified coach is with the team at all practices, competitions and events. The SCA recommends that ALL coaches are certified to ensure that a certified coach is with teams at all times.  After 2017, it will be required that ALL coaches are certified.

Is there an age limit?

Yes, coaches must be at least 16 years of age to receive certification.  Junior coaches can attend the SCA training clinics and conference and must work under an SCA certified coach.
