To use the coaching credentialing system - visit our website: www.piaa.org;
Click “Login” (the gold box in top right corner of your screen).
NOTE: School, official, or other logins are not useable for the purpose of coaching education.
If the box says “Account “, you are already logged in to our system, as either an official or as school staff. Please make sure to logout prior to creating a coaches profile. Please do not create more than one Coaches Profile. Use the “Did you forget your password?” tool or call for assistance.
Click “Coaches” from the Account Type drop down menu.
If you have not previously created a profile, make sure User Name and Password are blank, click “Register To Be A Coach” and fill in your personal and account information. Click “Register”. You will arrive at the Coaching Education System page.
- In the top section, “PIAA Education Requirements”, click “Add PIAA Documentation” to upload PDF files to support completion of the required coaching and first aid required courses (this is a one time requirement). Select your NFHS, ASEP or SafeSchools, approved course title from within the Course Name field. If submitting a college transcript, type in the name of the course you are submitting and the Course Number. Enter the date issued. Do not upload any other documents here (use the bottom section).
NOTE: If submitting a single transcript for both requirements, it must be uploaded twice separately, once for Coaching and again for First Aid.
- In the middle section, “School Affiliations”, click “Add School”. Simply begin typing the school name in the top field, and the system will match all available schools. Click on the school name and select the sport(s) you coach. Click “Add School” to complete the process for a single school. Multiple schools may be added if affiliated with more than one school. Please keep this section updated so that the appropriate Athletic Directors can view your documents.
- In the bottom section, “Optional School Education”, click “Add Education Documentation” to upload the annual PDE requirements for Cardiac and Concussion, or any other document a school may require coaches to upload, at their discretion. Please check with your athletic administrator to see if you are required to submit any items in this location.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jennifer Grassel, PIAA Assistant Executive Director in the PIAA Office at (717) 697-0374, or (800) 382-1392.
