When you complete the form, you will be asked what WIAA district your school is in. If you are not sure, click here to use the WIAA Member School Directory to find out.
As a WSDDCA member, you will receive periodic emails updating you on information that is pertinent to coaches. This includes information about competitions, rules changes, and events, including the State Dance/Drill Championships.
The WSDDCA website www.wsddca.com has much of the information needed to help you be an effective coach. This website is paid for entirely by WSDDCA members.
WSDDCA Facebook Group
With WSDDCA membership, join a closed Facebook group to connect and network with coaches.
We've created the Facebook Group as a place to share with each other in a positive manner. All primary and associate members of our organization are invited to participate in the group which means you may be communicating with judges, former coaches and contributors to our association. The Executive Directors and the President moderate the group and will remove posts which do not represent the supportive guidelines of our community. We welcome you to post any time, help contribute to the discussions. We're all here to help and encourage one another.
Only WSDDCA members are able to vote regarding proposals that impact all dance/drill teams in Washington. This includes determining many aspects pertaining to judging, such as the content of score sheets.
Voice with the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA)
The WSDDCA represents, and advocates for, Washington Dance/Drill Coaches.
Scholarships for Students
Since scholarships are financed primarily by membership dues, only students of WSDDCA members are eligible for the WSDDCA Academic Scholarships that are awarded at the State Championships.
Only members are eligible for service awards, Coach of the Year, and the Hall of Fame.
Members receive coaches credentials, a badge to be worn at competitions and conferences. The credentials includes your name, school, Stunt Certification expiration date, years coaching, and awards such as Coach of the Year and Hall of Fame. Credentials will be issued annually.
The WSDDCA, in cooperation with the WSDDJA, manages the competition schedule and provides online registration information for all member schools. The association also pays for interns to build the pool of certified judges.
As a state assocation member, WSDDCA is able to share important information from the National Dance Coaches Assocaition with all members.
