WIAA Handbook rule 20.3.1.E. mandates that "hands-on" stunt certification is required for cheer coaches who intend to have their cheer squad perform stunts. The certification program must be approved by the WIAA. Coaches must be recertified every three (3) years.
During the meeting on 6/23/2020, the WIAA Executive Board approved to allow the online USA Cheerleading Safety and Risk Management Course to meet the WIAA coaches standards for the 2020-21 school year and to extend current certifications through the 2020-21 school year.

Because WIAA Handbook Rule 20.3.1.H.1.b requires assistant coaches to be at least 19 years of age, certificates for completing a stunt certification clinic and passing the test will be issued only to individuals who are at least 19 years of age. Additionally, you must pay the registration fee, complete the clinic and pass the required test before receiving your certification document (via e-mail) following your clinic date. The only acceptable method of payment is by credit card and must be prior to attending the clinic. Any coach who fails to pay on the day of the clinic will not be allowed to participate in the certification.
*A minimum of seven (7) coaches must be registered for each certification course in order for the clinic to be held.
Registration lists are submitted to the WIAA office by the WIAA stunt clinician. Certificates and verification of completion are emailed to the clinic participants with two to four weeks following the clinic. Please plan accordingly.
