January 1, 2019 - Coach Cards

Happy New Year!!

Later this week – The MDSI Office will be sending out the old time coach cards to all Head Coaches – for their staff – Many are having a tough time getting acclimated to the Deck Pass formats – these may help during the learning curve to better keeping track of certification due dates – etc…

If a card is missing – the coach in question is not currently 100% certified – or is not registered yet for 2019.

Remember – Safety Training is a 2 part course – when 1 part expires – the entire course is expired – so it is not broken down on here by On Line Safety Training and In Water Skills (Lifeguarding

Also – Concussion Protocol Training is not listed on here – yet – If you take one of the certified concussion protocol courses – make sure to send  the certificate to– as we can now record it. For your on liability protection – getting it done – can only help you if there are ever any incidents.

This survey will take about 3-5 minutes. I would like all responses done by 1/20/2019. Thank you and I hope you all have a great New Year.
