US Lacrosse wants to foster on-going professional learning for our Coaching Education Program certified coaches, so we are pleased to announce that as of January 2010, certified coaches have the opportunity to earn coaching education credentials (CEOs) in addition to their certifications.

What is a CEO?
A CEO (Continuing Educational Opportunity) is a chance for our Coaching Education Program certified coaches to gain knowledge and credit for ongoing learning about the sport of lacrosse and the art of coaching. Online, in-person, and other additional opportunities will be published on the USL website and publicized in our monthly newsletters to give all CERTIFIED coaches the opportunity to become a better coach through timely and relevant learning experiences.
Our goal is to offer ongoing, dynamic learning opportunities for our certified coaches that supplement the core curriculum you experienced through the journey of earning your Level 1 or 2 certification, and to deepen your knowledge of lacrosse coaching as related to your current coaching experience, age group or program type. We will also strive to bring you a diverse mixture of topics from all domains of the National Standards for Coaches through these learning opportunities which will be delivered in web seminar, e-learning, or in-person platforms throughout the year.
The following are approved CEO courses.
