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:   The link below will provide access to the Redwoods training site.  Please follow this link to create a new log in or use your existing log in to complete the "Athlete Protection Training" which is good for two years.   A copy of the certification with the expiration date clearly visible must be emailed to the GKAISA vice president prior to June 1.

Coaches who coach in KISL or who are members of USA swimming may have already taken a similar training course through USA Swimming's Safe Sport which is also an approved course.  However to meet the requirement, a copy of the certification with the expiration date clearly visible must be emailed to the GKAISA vice president prior to June 1.  USA Swimming Safe Sport 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.
