There is no grace period; coach membership is not valid if any of the requirements lapse or expire. Coaches do not have USA Swimming insurance coverage if their membership is not valid; club insurance is also jeopardized by allowing coaches with lapsed certifications to be on deck. To help coaches manage their membership requirements, the date that each requirement expires is printed on the USA Swimming coach membership card, as well as being available on the Deck Pass app and through the online Club Portal. 


1.  Contact an ARC water safety, STSC or lifeguard instructor to schedule the ARC STSC in-water skills session in a pool with the instructor. (This session will be an abbreviated review session for those with a current STSC certification or a full session for those without a current STSC certification.) Coaches can also request a ‘blended learning’ course to include Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED, thus fulfilling another USA Swimming requirement at the same time.
Unfortunately, USA Swimming cannot accept your background check for another organization. Currently, there is significant duplication of efforts with regard to background checks required by schools, churches, youth sports and employers in part because organizations are not permitted to share applicant’s background check reports with each other. In addition, different entities use different criteria to judge someone’s suitability for employment, membership or service. There are no standard criteria by which search reports are evaluated.
We have selected IntelliCorp Records, an independent Consumer Reporting Agency, to perform the USA Swimming Background Check program. Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, IntelliCorp Records is a worldwide organization and a pioneer in the background screening industry. IntelliCorp is accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), and provides background screening products and services to help mitigate risk.
Website / Web page builder – WordPress, Zoho, LeadPages and ClickFunnels are examples of web platforms you may use to build a website. I recommend WordPress for its flexibility, ability to organize content in a way that ranks you high on search engines. You can host it in the environment of your choice and leverage premium hosting services to get top loading speed which will improve your site ranking, user experience, traffic and conversion numbers.

A Web analytics program tells you how shoppers are using your site. It reveals where users come from, what pages they visit and what keyword searches brought them to the site. An analytics package enables merchants to calculate their conversion rate. (Your “conversion rate” is the percentage of your visitors who make a purchase — a critical fact to know and track over time.)
Augusta National, which hosts the Masters Tournament this weekend, goes to extraordinary lengths to cloister its roughly 300 members, a group that includes some of the wealthiest, most powerful businessmen—and, as of 2012, women—in the world. Guests must be accompanied by members at all times. Autograph requests are forbidden. And in recent years, the club has acquired an estimated $55 million in real estate surrounding its courses, clubhouse and cabins, creating a bigger buffer zone to insulate its members, and to better control the Masters experience.

The fifteenth principle could also be heard in the White House on November 16, 2010, when President Barack Obama presented the Medal of Honor to Army Staff Sergeant Salvatore A. Giunta. During the sergeant's second combat tour in Afghanistan, his team had been ambushed by a well-armed insurgent group. Giunta had raced forward under fire at great risk to himself to render aid to the wounded and to rescue an injured G.I. being dragged away by insurgents. The United States cited Giunta for his "unwavering courage, selflessness, and decisive leadership while under extreme enemy fire" and for his "extraordinary heroism and selflessness above and beyond the call of duty." When the president detailed this selfless act of leadership during the White House ceremony—with Giunta's wife and parents and the survivors of his unit present and the Medal of Honor recipient himself standing at the president's side—the East Room, according to a reporter, "was so silent you could hear a rustle from across the room."

A: All coaches must complete the online course and test.  When the course is completed, save/print the Online Content Only certificate and forward it to your LSC registrar. The certificate will have a QR code that can be traced on ARC website. The course should take 2-3 hours to complete. Coaches can exit the course at any time and log back in to resume where they left off but once they start the final exam, they need to complete it in one session.
