Level 1 Information:
USATF Coaching Education Level 1 program is a starting point for all track and field coaches. One of the objectives is to put all coaches on common platform (i.e., speaking the same language). The Level 1 program covers all events in a foundational manner by emphasizing fundamentals, rules, safety/risk management, and instruction techniques. Level 1 prepares individuals to coach junior high school, high school, club, and age group athletes.

  • Attendance at all sessions is required.
  • After the school, participants must complete an online exam that covers event-related and sport science subjects.
  • Upon attending the School and passing the exam, participants will be issued a Level 1 Certificate of Completion.
