Coaching Education Program (CEP) Requirements
All coaches must have the required certification level by December 31st of the current season. Go to the WAHA website for more information.

WAHA Background Screening
All associations are required to screen board members, coaches, team managers and locker room monitors through Protect Youth Sports, a national criminal background search service. The screen consists of a National Criminal Database and National Sex Offender Search. Background screens must be completed every two years. The Vice President maintains a spreadsheet of all those who have been screened. If you are unsure if you need to complete the background screening process for the 2017-18 season, please contact Cindy Heindel. Background screens MUST be completed prior to participating in any AAHA activities.
