Basic Skills Instructors Requirements

The Basic Skills instructors requirements are for coaches that ONLY work with Basic Skills skaters. Coaches that work with skaters beyond Basic Skills levels must complete the coach compliance requirements.

If a coach has already completed his or her coaches compliance, he or she does NOT need to complete the Basic Skills instructors registration. This coach will only need to purchase a Basic Skills instructors membership through his or her Basic Skills program for $12.

No coach will need to process duplivate background checks.
