USATF Coaching Education has implemented a re-certification component to the Level 1 curriculum. Re-certification for Level 1 coaches will be required on a 4-year cycle. To open the new re-certification, a “grandfather clause” will be offered from January 1, 2013, throughDecember 31, 2020.
A coach who received a Level 1 certification prior to January 1, 2013, and has not obtained an USATF Level 2 certification must meet the new re-certification guidelines. A coach who fails to re-certify through the 2020 Olympic quadrennium as ofDecember 31, 2016, will be removed from the USATF coach certification database.

USATF has joined the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to implement the SafeSport program. The goal of SafeSport is to provide a safe environment in our sport at all levels, but particularly for athletes who are ages 18 and under. The SafeSport program includes athlete protection policies, guidelines, codes of conduct, a background screening program, education and training, and a reporting process for any SafeSport concerns within our sport.
As a member of the Coaches Registry, you are required to complete the USOC SafeSport Training Course, as well as your annual background screen (or bi-annual if you are not a USATF Youth Coach). SafeSport becomes a requirement of the Coaches Registry onJanuary 1, 2016.
