East Bay Lacrosse : Coaches

(1) USA Lacrosse Certification

To encourage our coaches to learn and grow and provide an even better experience for our players, East Bay Lacrosse will reimburse coaches for any registration fees associated with successful obtainment of a USA Lacrosse coaching certification level Silver or above. The first level of certification (Bronze) is available with the required USA Lacrosse Coach membership. More advanced levels (Silver, Gold and Platinum) involve additional online courses and access to greater online resources. As added incentive for our East Bay coaches to become certified, all USA Lacrosse-certified coaches will also receive one free player registration for any season or session in which they coach!

(2) Reimbursement Requests

  1. Submit your request via Google Form
  2. E-mail receipts and/or documentation to Derek Hillier: hillier7@sbcglobal.net
  3. Payment will be issued upon receipt and review of submission.

Note that completed certification is required for reimbursement, therefore payments will be issued after obtaining certification, not upon registration.
