Coach Education Courses
WSA encourages coaches to improve their coaching skills by taking courses in addition to the educational opportunities offered internally by WSA. We believe that every great coach will want to further their education and WSA will support this by reimbursing active coaches for the cost of approved courses only (listed below). Active coaches are those that are currently assigned as a head or assistant coach during the season the course will be attended.
- The courses listed below are pre-approved.
- Courses not listed below must be reviewed and signed off by our Director of Coaching before WSA will consider reimbursement.
