US Quidditch offers a comprehensive non-transferable and non-refundable seasonal coach membership for $50, which includes a certification process. Upon completion of the certification process, a USQ coach member can boast the first and only quidditch coach certification. The seasonal coach membership will expire on June 30.
If an adult player or referee would like to also become a coach, they can upgrade their membership for a $25 upgrade fee.
An individual can play for a maximum of one team and can coach for a maximum of one team. The team for which one plays need not be the team for which one coaches; if the two teams do differ, two separate memberships must be purchased (an individual cannot use the upgrade option when two different teams are involved). The coach member must be present when a team participates in the Regional Championship and US Quidditch Cup events. In this situation, the coach should join the team for which they wish to play on the USQ website and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to inform the league of their intention to coach a different team. USQ will provide the dual member with a letter of approval, which must be presented at each tournament.
