Behind every great cyclist is a great coach. Coaching and mentoring can be some of the most rewarding aspects of a person's life. When your athletes succeed, you succeed!

 Becoming a licensed USAC coach allows you to not only improve your own health and personal marketability, but also to gain the knowledge to improve the lives of those who call you coach.

 Below are all the resources you will need to become a USA Cycling licensed coach, as well as resources for current coaches to upgrade or renew their license and to advance their learning.

COACHING LICENSE RENEWAL


All coaching licenses can be renewed online!

How to renew a license online:

Your CEUs and Criminal Background Check (CBC) must be current. If they are not, you will not be able to renew your coaching license online. 

Keep in mind that your CBC expiration date could be coming up, and (for all licenses, regardless of term) any CBC that expires during the term of the coaching license means the coach will have 30 days to renew the CBC. Any coach who does not make his/her CBC current during the 30 day period will have their coaching license suspended until the CBC is brought current. 

  1. Check your account to confirm the status of your CEUs and CBC. Do this by logging into your USA Cycling Account here. Once in your account, click on “license” (below the “Welcome” header) and scroll down to your coaching license status.

  2. If your CEUs are not due until 12/31/17 or '18 and your CBC is current, then please proceed to renew your license online.

  3. If your CEUs were due 12/31/16 (or earlier), please submit your CEU Report Form. If you have 40+ CEUs, your account will be updated promptly. If you have less than 40 CEUs, please refer to the chart for CEU recertification on our CEU policy page. Once you have taken care of your CEU recertification, please email coaches@usacycling.org your CEU Report Form and notice that you have fulfilled the CEU requirements and your account will be updated promptly.

  4. If your Background Check has expired, you will need to bring this current to renew your coaching license. You can do this by following the Criminal Background Check Procedure.
