Driver and Safety clinics are scheduled at Timberlake this Spring. The link below lists the dates and signup contact information.
The driver clinic will meet maintenance clinic requirements for any current driver and will also test aspiring Assistant Drivers in any/all three events. To test for Assistant you must have: 1) completed and had signed off all prerequisites, 2) obtained a motor vehicle records review, 3) submitted the paperwork to AWSA for review, 4) received AWSA approval confirmation before signing up for the clinic.
The safety clinic will meet maintenance clinic requirements for current safety officials and will qualify new Safety Coordinators. There are no prerequisites for new Safety Coordinators.
In early November, the International Activities Committee (IAC) will nominate coaches, managers and physicians for all 2018 international events listed. If you are interested in being considered for appointment to any of these tournaments, please fill out this form. There is no longer any funding for coach and manager for any age group teams. For the Junior Worlds, the physician alone receives 50% funding. The elite team staff is fully funded (manager, coach and physician) to the Pan Am Championships. Safesport certification is now required. There is no cost, and it is accessible online. Background screening is still required (duration two years) and the expense is covered by AWSA.
