If you are a prospective coach, being re-certified, leveling up, etc. please ensure you start completing all of the course requirements ASAP.  Even if you are only a Coach in Training, these courses are extremely helpful and will help when it comes time to be certified.  Ensure you are set up in Sideline and have all documents loaded. 

The Making Ethical Decisions course and evaluation should be started immediately as this course has manual requirements that are outside our control.


Our next session is tentatively planned for late May 2024

If you have any questions regarding the credentialing process, please email: certification@cheerns.com.  

Note: Outside of credentialing sessions, the certification email is checked infrequently. During credentialing sessions there is approx. a 24-72 hr delay with responses.
