Coaches CredentialsEstimated Reading Time: 1 Minutes
Coaches whose coach certification level shows as not current, as shown below on the membership card under Coach and Official Certifications, are fully licensed coaches and should have full access to the venue, coach tickets, etc. unless there is a regional or state rule that all coaches must be certified and current with their certification.
If the coach is current with referee certification he/she may serve on a jury and set courses, even though coaching certification is not current (for demonstration purposes). Again, unless there is a regional/state/divisional rule that states coaches must be current with their coaching certification to set, be a team captain, etc.
Not being current with coaching certification has no bearing with what they can do on the hill at a U.S. Ski & Snowboard event from a national standpoint. Some regions/divisions/states require Level 100 or higher to be on the Junior Championships team staff for example
Coaches who are pending or inactive, ie. have not completed background screening, SafeSport training, Introduction to Avalanches, and/or the Coaching fundamentals course. These coaches cannot print out a membership card with their coach membership, and will not appear on Member Lookup on the My U.S. Ski & Snowboard site with their member number. These coaches should not have access to the venue and should not be given coaches tickets, etc. per ACR 203.2 and 2013-14 U.S. Ski & Snowboard officials update review item 23 and U.S. Ski & Snowboard Competition Continuing Education update item 2.
