USATF Coaching Education has implemented a recertification component to the Level 1 curriculum. Recertification for Level 1 coaches will be required on a 4-year cycle. To open the new recertification, a “grandfather clause” will be offered from January 1, 2013, through December 31, 2020. A coach who received a Level 1 certification prior to January 1, 2013, and has not obtained an USATF Level 2 certification must meet the new recertification guidelines. A coach who fails to recertify through the 2020 Olympic quadrennium as of December 31, 2016, will be removed from the USATF coach certification database.
