All Varsity, JV and 14U HEAD coaches are required to be US Lacrosse Level 1 Certified. WSLA recommends this for all coaches at all levels.  For the 2021 season, the in person clinics are virtual and are coaching theory based rather than practical. NEW coaches can elect (for the 2021 season only) to forgo the virtual "Athlete Centered Coaching Workshop" but complete the rest of the Level 1 certification requirements (making up the in-person class when those resume).  Below is a curated list of resources that may be more effective for NEW coaches than the theory based workshop.

Next Steps:

  • Cultural Competency training (online course available in E-learning)
  • The Great Ball Game (a "must watch" video on the sport's origin story)
  • Safe and Legal Defense in the Women's game (online course available in E-learning)
