Now that the U100 certification is a mandatory requirement, it is important to know how to verify that the certification has been completed.
There are 5 ways that the U100 Certification can be verified online.
1st Membership Card
- Individuals who have successfully completed the U100 certification will now have it appear on their membership card online.
- Membership cards can be accessed by individuals by going their membership page the USA Gymnastics website.
- Club administrators can also print professional membership cards, from the Professional roster page.
- Individuals can also view and print their U100 certificate by viewing their certifications on the membership page.
- Under the certifications page the U100 certification is referenced at Instructor Certified.
3rd Verify Memberships via the Sanction page
- Meet Directors can verify from the verify membership portion of the sanction page.
- Meet director can login to the USA Gymnastics website, click on sanction, my sanctions, select the sanction, and click on verify memberships.
- They would then select verify members, and enter in the membership numbers of the individuals they are searching. The system will then provide you a list of the individuals that includes their membership, background, check, safety expiration dates, and will provide you a column that will indicate if the U100 course has been completed. As a reminder, U100 is only a requirement for coaches at sanctioned competitions. As judges already receive a certification through their judging programs.
4th. New Membership Verification Entry Function
- This new functionality provides a more simplistic way for meet directors and club administrators to verify an athlete and/or coach has the appropriate membership and/or certifications to attend the event.
- Professional coaches will only appear eligible to participate in the sanctioned event if they have all of the appropriate membership, background check, safety/risk management, and U100 certifications.
5th. State and Regional Committee Members
- The professional membership roster that is listed under the committee member function has been updated to include a U100 column.
- The column is in addition to the membership, safety and background check expiration dates.
- The U100 column will state "yes" for coaches who have successfully obtained the certification.
