How to Become a Coach

Coaches Card -new coach instructions

  1. Go to  and create an account.   When you do this, make sure your club affiliation is the Batavia Wrestling Club.  
  2.   Then make the steps to purchase your “wrestling leader” coaches’ card.   The system will stop you and redirect you to the background check site.
  3. Do the background check- it usually takes about 2 days to get it through.
  4. Then try again to purchase your card and it’ll stop you again.  This time do the “safe sport” video which is about 1.5hours.   When you’ve completed this, send me an email and I’ll purchase your card.
  5. We’re not done yet.  You need your Copper Certification to Coach at the tournaments.  click on and click on purchase Copper Certification and it’ll redirect you to the website .  When you finish this certification, the club will reimburse you the $50 fee.
  6. The only fee you’re responsible for is the background check.
  7. Once your Copper Certified, you never have to retake this.   However, we have to do the safe sport video every year and the background checks every two years.
