2019 update: MMOG has not selected a date for Virtus training. Sign up by following the VIRTUS link below and you can train at other locations nearby.
There are a several requirements that need to be satisfied before we get started this season with coaching.
As you know, there are 6 requirements of all coaches - VIRTUS training, Fingerprinting/background check, and National Federation of State High School Associations (www.NFHSLearn.com) training are the primary focus - without these you cannot coach this season.
This is a one time classroom training requirement with follow-up articles sent to your email.
To register for offered sessions simply follow this link and then select a session that works in your schedule.
For your convenience, MMOG is hosting a training session on November 27th in Schellberg Hall.
2) Fingerprinting and background check
If you are brand new to the program then you will need to complete below form and schedule an appointment for fingerprinting.
What if your background check has expired?
The background check is good for 3 years, so some of you may need to renew. This does not mean you have to be fingerprinted again! Visit the Parish Office and see Peter to sign the blue form. MMOG takes care of the rest!
3) NFHSLearn training sessions
The final requirement for all coaches to complete is a series of 3 online training sessions. First you will need to go to www.NFHSLearn.com and register for an account. Once you have your account then you will need to add the following 3 courses to your course list and complete them.
Once you have completed the courses print out your certificates and send or deliver them to the Parish Office or email as an attachment to
In addition to the above coach requirements there are a few other Diocesan volunteer recordkeeping requirements that we maintain at the Parish:
Please complete this application and send it to the Parish Office.
Code of Pastoral Conduct Acknowledgement
Please read the Code of Pastoral Conduct at this link.
When you have completed this then fill out the acknowledgement form and return to the Parish Office.
Please read, sign and return this form to the Parish Office.
Zero tolerance policy
Please remember that we discussed why there the Diocese has instituted a zero tolerance policy. The Diocese is being audited and that means we will be too. Any coaches who cannot get these requirements completed before the season starts will not be able to coach this year.
We will be sending a link to the Smartsheet so that you know who what your status is for each of these requirements. We have included assistant coaches that were provided to us. If there are any other coaches please let us know ASAP in order to give them time to meet all of these requirements as well.
Thanks for all you do for our program and our kids!
