All clubs and coaches are reminded that coaches’ first aid, CPR, and safety training certifications must be current in order for coaches to perform their duties on the deck at practices and at meets. A recent review of the coach roster shows that as many as 20% of the coaching credentials are not current, and therefore invalid. It is up to coaches to keep their certifications current. The coach’s USA Swimming membership card lists the expiration dates of each of the coach’s certifications. Member clubs must ensure that all their coaches complete the necessary training and maintain valid registration cards.

It is the policy of San Diego-Imperial Swimming that all coaches must display their current coach membership card on deck at meets. At meets this fall the head referee or a designee will conduct coach membership card checks at each meet to ensure compliance with this requirement. Coaches with questions about certification requirements should contact the SI Swim office at si-swimming@sbcglobal.net or (619) 275-1292.
