AAA Handbook, p. 14:

Rule 1. QUALIFICATIONS. All coaches shall be licensed
teachers meeting the employment criteria stated in Rule 2
as required by the Arkansas Department of Education or a
credentialed Registered Volunteer as authorized by Act
1012 of the 1997 Arkansas General Assembly.
If a school knowingly or unknowingly allows an uncertified
coach to perform any coaching duties during an
interscholastic contest, the school must forfeit all contests/
games won in which the uncertified coach performed any
coaching duties. The school must suspend the uncertified
coach from all interscholastic coaching duties until all
coaching requirements are met. The school will be placed
on warning.
Interscholastic coaching by Registered Volunteers excludes
the sports of football, basketball and track.

A. Registered volunteers are prohibited from performing any
coaching duties during an interscholastic contest in the
sports of football, basketball, and track.
B. Registered volunteer coaches are not permitted to receive
any financial compensation for their services.
C. Registered volunteer coaches must provide the school a
current health certificate (TB skin test) and documentation
of a criminal background check (finger printing) prior to
interscholastic coaching
D. Registered volunteer coaches must successfully complete
the AAA’s required coaches education program prior to
interscholastic coaching.
E. The school must submit a Registered Volunteers
Verification form each year for each registered volunteer
certifying that the school has ON FILE documentation for
each AAA required item.
F. Registered volunteer coaches must submit an enrollment
form to the AAA office in any year that they serve in this
G. Registered volunteer cheer coaches, competitive and noncompetitive,
must be AACCA safety certified.

Yep the rules have changed Back in my college days I just went over to a LR High School asked the HC who had went to HS with my Dad and I became a GA.  I scouted and worked with DT.  It was fun too bad they had to get into regulating it so much.
