Coaches share their talent, skills and experience to advise or monitor the student athletes of the North Royalton City School District. Our coaches are required to meet the training requirements set forth by our District and the Ohio Department of Education.
CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR COACHES/VOLUNTEER COACHES
Coaches are required to obtain a Pupil Activity Permit through the Ohio Department of Education
to work with, supervise, or coach student athletes in Ohio.
To obtain a Pupil Activity Permit, coaches must complete the following trainings:
Fundamentals of Coaching Certificate (one time only training):
Advanced First Aid for Coaches (PAP Class) - Nationally Approved Programs (must take in order to obtain or renew PAP License):
Concussion Training Certificate (valid for three years):
Sudden Cardiac Arrest Certificate (Lindsay's Law) (valid for one year):
- Each year, coaches must renew the Sudden Cardiac Arrest training also known as Lindsay's Law. The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) encourages use of its Learning Management System (LMS) to access the Lindsay's Law course. Coaches must have an active or pending Pupil Activity Permit (PAP) application to access the LMS system on the ODE Website. Once the permit is in the active or pending status, you may access the LMS through your OH/ID account. On the LMS homepage at the top right corner, click the Course Catalog link. Then search for Sudden Cardiac Arrest to find the course. After you view the materials and pass a short test, you may download and print your certificate of completion.
CPR/AED Card (valid for two years):
- The athletic department works the Cleveland Clinic to offer CPR/AED classes twice a year (winter/summer). Coaches will receive information on these classes via email. The American Red Cross also offers online certifications, or you can contact your local fire department to see if they offer courses.
