The coach and the instructor are required to sign the form and falsification of this document may constitute a Code of Conduct violation. It is not your responsibility to question the validity of the instructor's signature unless you have reason to do so. In that event, contact the agency that certified the instructor and try to confirm that the instructor's certification is valid and that the skills session did take place.
A copy of the STSC Online Content Only certification and this signed Skills Sheet should be sent to the LSC Registrar; together, they complete the STSC requirement. The STSC expiration date will always be the one on the STSC Online certification because this one will always expire first.New link on www.usaswimming.org website for Fundamentals of Coaching Test
