Washington State Patrol – coaches, trainers, team managers

USYS/WYS coaching licenses
• High quality, professional training sessions throughout our programs from
U8-18
• All Recreational Coaches are encouraged to attend USYS/WYS licensing
training sessions and earn their coaching certifications
• Emphasis on player skill development over game results in U8-11
