Coaches Registry

The USATF Registered Coaches Program was conceived in 2010 to establish a set of standards for all coaches affiliated with USATF. The program involves a four-pronged process, which results in a published list of coaches who have demonstrated the ethics, honesty, trustworthiness, and sport knowledge necessary for endorsement by the national governing body. The centerpiece of the process is a comprehensive SafeSport Handbook which focuses on only the highest ethical and honorable standards. Registered Coaches also carry with them the rights and privileges available only to those within the registry. These benefits may include:
  • Discounts for premier seminars and coaching education programs
  • Registered Coach credential at USATF National Championships
  • Selection to international team staffs
  • Selection for Coaching Enhancement Grants
  • Involvement in USATF High Performance Programs
  • Compensation from USATF or USOPC athlete support programs
To become registered a coach, you must complete the application process, which includes the steps outlined below.
  1. Be a current USATF member.
  2. Pass the USATF background screen.
  3. Successfully complete the U.S. Center for SafeSport Training course.
