The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) is the governing body of athletics and activities for secondary education schools in the state of Washington. CoachUp! Washington is a collaborative initiative between the WIAA and the University of Washington’s Center for Leadership in Athletics that will bring foundational SEL training to 44,000 middle and high school coaches in WA State, provide opportunities for coaches to deepen SEL practice and bring more women into the coaching profession. Curriculum will be delivered through online and in-person courses over a three-year period. This initiative intends to push demand by changing legislation to mandate the SEL course for all Washington middle and high school coaches.
Strengthening all students for life through participation in excellent, fair, safe, and accessible activities.
