Coach Training Requirements

Coach Training Requirements

As a volunteer/coach/manager, we need your assistance in creating a safe environment for all those involved.

There are four compliance items that are required by either State or Federal law to be completed prior to your participation:

  1. Safe Sport Certification
  2. Concussion Certification
  3. Sudden Cardiac Arrest Certification
  4. Risk Management Application (RMA) Approval

You will need to complete the three certifications before you are able to receive your RMA (Risk Management Application). This will allow MIFC to roster you to the team and be on the field with your team.

There is no cost to you, as you will use the access codes provided. The training process will take some time, but you can start and stop as needed and pick up where you left off.

The following link from Washington Youth Soccer provides an overview and important links to the training and certification process:
