Coaching Information

A clear background check is the number one reason that the licensing process gets delayed for a coach. If a last-minute potential coach (whether paid or volunteer) is interested in a coaching authorization, the person needs to order the background check packet from the BOEE web site ASAP, read the directions, and then complete and return the materials. The second item that delays the process is the verification of the required coursework. TRANSCRIPTS AND CERTIFICATES OF COMPLETION FROM COACHING AUTHORIZATION PROGRAMS ARE NOT LICENSES. Licenses are public record and are available through a search on the BOEE website. Athletic Directors should check the website to determine if the person is cleared to coach.
