COACH CERTIFICATION PROCESS

  1. Fill out a coaches application with the club you are wishing to coach.  A list of member clubs may be located at:
    Club Contacts – Boys
    Club Contacts – Girls
  2. Once approved by your club, register at www.sportabase.com as a coach under your clubs registration module.
  3. Purchase or renew your US Lacrosse Coaches Membership at: USLacrosse.org
  4. Order and pass a NCSI background check from US Lacrosse  (note, you will need to access/order your background check while logged into your US Lacrosse account.  An 8-digit code will be provided when accessed through your account by clicking “Purchase a Background check” ).
  5. Register for and complete the Level 1 online course provided by US Lacrosse at: US Lacrosse online courses
  6. Register for and attend any one of the US Lacrosse Coaches Education Program (CEP) Level 1 clinics held throughout the country.  Indian Nations partners with US Lacrosse to offer these clinics locally throughout the year.  To view a list of clinics, clink here: Clinic Locations

As a coach progresses through the lacrosse system, Indian Nations Lacrosse Conference encourages each coach to continue a path of higher education within the sport by completing additional levels of certification such as US Lacrosses’ Level 2 & Level 3 certifications.
