Coaching certification will now follow the current USA Rugby membership cycle. So long as the professional development requirement is met each registration cycle, Coaches will remain certified indefinitely. Registration will still be necessary each registration cycle.
In an effort to make the transition to this new certification structure as easy as possible, every coach's active status has automatically been extended until the beginning of the 2014-2015 membership cycle (beginning 9/1/2014). Annual professional development will be required starting with the 2014-15 membership cycle.
