Prospective community coaches should be registered online by the school.


2024 - 2025 Community Coach Classes

Interested in becoming a Community Coach? The Georgia High School Association offers a Community Coach Education Program that you must complete in order to be a certified Community Coach. You MUST register for this course through the school where you will be coaching. The registration is done online and submitted by your school. The cost of the course is $325. This course consists of two classes: a 4-hour PREPARE/ First Aid class and an 8-hour Principles for Coaching class.   After each class you will receive instructions for accessing the online exams.  After successfully completing (a score of 80 or above) both exams you are then certified to coach. Coaching before this time is a violation of GHSA policy and subjects your school to a fine.
