Coaches –Must be at least 21 years of age. A coach must register with the USCA 15 business days (see U21 & under details below) in advance of the start of competition and complete the following requirements:

(i) Provide his or her personal information and agree to the code of ethics (included in the online registration process).

(ii) Complete a successful background screen by the National Center for Safety Initiatives at least 10 days prior to a respective event start date (information provided after registration).

(iii) Read the SafeSport handbook (information provided after registration).

(iv) Complete the SafeSport training modules (information provided after registration).

Coaches must also register with the team athletes under the respective event in the Blue Sombrero online registration system as a “volunteer” to appear on the team roster. Coach event registration serves as a source of communication to others on the team, and allows team members also, the ability to monitor when team member registrations are completed (team member names appear on the team roster as their registration requirements are manually reviewed and appear to be complete). Teams may have only one designated coach and one other team official per game. Any change in the designated coach and/or team official must be noted on the line-up card provided to the Chief Umpire prior to the beginning of the game.  Coaches and team officials should register 30 days in advance of an event, as background checks are required (up to ten days to complete; international background checks typically require at least 30 days for completion).

Coaches are required for ALL U21 and under events (Junior & U18 National Championship teams).

Legal Guardian Consent Forms - in compliance with US Center for Safeport and USA Curling MAAPP Policy, legal Guardian Consent forms are required for all minor athletes giving consent to a supervising adult or coach when a legal parent or guardian is not present or accompanying a minor athlete. Consent forms are to be carried by all designated coaches and supervising adults.
