What do I receive as a Club Coach?

Being a Club Coach is an opportunity for personal growth as an influencer, a coach and a mentor. You will be sent a club coach pin to wear during club meetings and will be provided helpful resources to aid you in performing your duties.

If you successfully coach the club to achieve recognition in the Distinguished Club Program, you will also receive credit in the education program and will be sent a certificate of accomplishment. Note: Credit is not received until after year-end results are final.
