  • Club Certification Guidelines | USSA - Foundation
    organizational performance and success Further certification is intended to be an assessment of the organization s self stated goals and objectives Therefore if the stated goals are to place athletes on the National Teams and the club has not that is an unmet organizational goal but if the stated goal is to be the best developmental program in the country and the club is then it is reaching its goals The Bronze Silver and Gold certification levels will identify clubs that are truly part of the Olympic pipeline at any level and these clubs will be recognized as podium clubs The certification process is designed to recognize all the elements that lead to success with organizations parents athletes volunteers staff funding and athletic results The USSA wants to certify and recognize not only those clubs that have fostered athletes year after year to the elite level but also those clubs that do it right day after day regardless of whether they have elite athletes and perhaps play a different role within the national pipeline It should be noted that the bar is set very high for Bronze certification such that it may take some time for a club to reach this level As a Bronze Club you are on the podium and we all know what kind of commitment and mix of required elements it can take to get there Therefore Bronze does not indicate satisfactory performance it is not a C it is verification that you are a Club deserving medal status With this said Gold and Silver certifications will be reserved for those clubs that are going above and beyond the required elements and can demonstrate performance in all areas over time The basic level of certification is intended to recognize all clubs that meet the minimum certification requirements and are in alignment with the USSA s core values and guidelines So What Certified Clubs are more Attractive to parents and athletes Legitimate in the eyes of funders and donors Rewarding and professional places to work Connected to something greater than the local club experience Tuned in to USSA resources Focused on success in all areas organizationally athletically and in character culture and mission What are the Certification Requirements 1 Certified Club USSA Certified Club application No club visit Must meet minimum qualifications Eligible for CLIP insurance program through USSA 2 Bronze Club Complete online Certification Course and assessments including uploads Staff and Board Responsible for Certification History and Organizational Structure Verification of Legal Entity Verification of Club Insurance Budget Reports Mission Vision Values Primary Job Descriptions Staffing Worksheet Volunteer Report Training Phases Worksheet Athletic Performance Worksheet Facilities Worksheet Interview with

Relations Communications and Marketing Organizational Human Resources Program Athlete and Child Safety Program USSA Club Programming Program Logistics Assessing Outcomes and Measuring Results All certification applications will be processed on a first come first served basis and are subject to published deadlines to initiate the process Only complete applications will be considered for final review Involvement and Engagement in Certification It is important to involve key constituents at the board staff athlete parent and community levels in this process Not only will this help to divide and conquer with regards to the tasks of the process itself but this will also foster more engagement of all club constituents The club s lead staff and an officially designated board member accountable to the certification process are required to participate in the interviews and visitations and the certification process will require the club to take stock of all constituents involved in the organization which makes it a good time to check in with them directly This will also allow the club to make the most out of this process The entire club community should be aware of the club s certification candidacy Further the club can benefit from some exciting public relations marketing and club engagement opportunities related to this process Involvement is the key to realizing the true benefits of the certification process as opposed to it being a more invisible administrative process What is the purpose of the Interview or Club Visit Bronze Silver and Gold applications will be complete in advance of the club visit or interview for Bronze The purpose of the club visit or interview is to Assess the accuracy of the Certification Application and materials Provide an internal and external peer review Engage club leaders staff and board in an organizational assessment Identify and discuss club strengths and weaknesses opportunities and threats Determine what additional resources the club needs to continue Club Development and improve performance Help determine appropriate level of certification To represent the partnership between the club and the USSA the Club Certification Visiting Team will consist of 5 individuals 1 Visiting Team Chair a Club Expert Consultant as local to the region as possible or may also be a USSA employee 1 USSA employee Club
