Coaches Training

 In order for a coach to be considered a GKAISA coach, the following requirements must be met prior to June 1 for the current season. 

1.  Athlete Protection Training:   Two programs are acceptable for meeting the requirement.  One program is offered through GKAISA and may be accessed through the GKAISA Athlete Protection Link below.  This certification is titled "Child Sexual Abuse Prevention" and is good for 18 months.  If the training is taken after May 1 and before June 1, then the certification will be good for two summer seasons.

The other program accepted is Athlete Protection Training through USA Swimming.  Coaches who coach in KISL or USA swimming may already have USA training.  If a coach wishes to use this training to meet the requirement, then a copy of the certification with the expiration date clearly visible must be emailed to the GKAISA vice president prior to June 1.  USA training is good for two years as long as the certification hasn't expired.

 

2.  Concussion Awareness Training: This training is required by the State of Tennessee every year for all coaches.  IT HAS TWO PARTS:  a video to watch with questions to answer.  A certificate of completion can be downloaded and printed with the coach's name.  The second part is a few pages of reading with a top page to initial several statements and sign at the bottom.  Copies of the video certificate and the signature page must be sent to the GKAISA vice president prior to June 1.
