Background investigations and certifications
- all adults that want to coach are required to obtain a certificate or email notification that shows a successful completion of the background evaluation, and shall come from the private process identified on the USA Wrestling website
The process is initiated by the person pursuing the evaluation, and generally takes anywhere between a couple of days to several weeks depending on each person.
The results of the background check are private between the adult and investigative organization in accordance with USA Wrestling based in Colorado. DSYS and NVWF officials do not see the results.
Once complete, adults may obtain a USA Coach Card themselves or by asking DSYS to obtain one for them.
Submit the paper showing successful completion to DSYS staff for the files.
All coaches are required to obtain an annual USA Coach membership card which is generally reimbursed by DSYS. The membership and card may be obtained after the background evaluation is complete. A bronze certification is good enough.
