Choreographers & Guest Coach Certification Requirements


Any person who works with your team MORE than 3 times will require all certifications. If you are bringing someone in to work with your team 3 or less times, they technically do not have to hold the certifications. Most Oregon choreographers do complete the certifications. However, your district may require additional requirements and you should check with your athletic director any time you bring in a guest coach/choreographer.

Required Certifications: (for anyone working three or more times with a specific team)
Fundamentals of Coaching - One time requirement 

Concussion in Sports Annual - required every year 

Heat Illness Prevention Quadrennial - required every 4 years 

Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs and Substances Training Quadrennial - required every 4 years 

Spirit Safety Annual - required every year (cheerleading specific)

If you have questions, please email Kelly Foster at OSAA, kellyf@osaa.org. You may have additional district requirements that you are specifically required to complete, you should be checking with your athletic director to be sure you are set.
