Choreographers & Guest Coach Certification Requirements

Any person who works with a 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.
