IMPACT Training for Detroit PAL Coaches

Our IMPACT Training & Certification Program was developed in partnership with Michigan State University’s Institute for the Study of Youth Sports. This proprietary 3- year course teaches coaches how to be mentors while keeping kids first. The certification includes a yearly background check and a credentialed badge.

All training sessions are held at the Detroit PAL office, located at 1680 Michigan Ave, Detroit, MI 48216.

New coaches are required to take three levels of IMPACT training in three consecutive years.

First Year: Level 1 | Second Year: Level 2 | Third Year: Level 3
