The USJF National Coach Re – Certification Course is similar to the new USJF National Coach course published in January 2023. 

Many of you seeking re-certification have not taken the base modules of our new USJF National Coach course.

In developing the base knowledge we have kept the modules the same.  Your USJF re-certification will change from National Coach to Elite Coach Level I.

In a few years when you re-certify, your designation will change to Elite Coach Level II.

The USJF Elite Coach Level II will consist of more in depth coaching skills, stratetgies with athlete development.

Your certification is valid for 2 years from date of issuance.
