The Southern Wisconsin Figure Skating Club (SWFSC) follows U.S. Figure Skating and Professional Skaters Association coaching requirements to help ensure that we are providing proper instruction and a safe environment for our skaters.  The Club verifies coaching eligibility at annual membership renewal time and for coach participation in SWFSC Ice and in U.S. Figure Skating sanctioned tests and competitions.  

Coach's Requirements: U.S. Figure Skating membership, Professional Skaters Association (PSA) membership (for qualifying competitions only), coaches registration with the SWFSC, Liability Insurance, Safe Sport Certification, completed current Background Check  and Continuing Education Requirement compliance.  
Associate Coaches: Coaches who belong to USFS as either an individual member or as a member of another USFS Club, are welcome to teach on SWFSC ice if they are current members of USFS, have proof of Liability Insurance, Safe Sport Coach's Certification and completed current annual Background Check.  This information must be presented to the Club President/ or Club Safe Sport Chair, prior to teaching on Club Ice. Visiting coaches can have five free days on club ice before we impose a $5 daily fee or request associate coach membership.

Certified Instructors are eligible to teach on SWFSC Ice with proof of Liability Insurance, current Instructor Certification, which includes Background Check for those 18 and older, Safe Sport Certification and Club approval.  More information on coaching requirements is available from U.S. Figure Skating's Coaches and U.S. Figure Skating Information for Clubs sites.
