The ASEP Professional Coaches Education Program provides comprehensive courses and resources for those who seek to become coaches in high school, college and university, Olympic, and competitive club-sport programs for athletes 14 years of age and older.
ASEP offers coaches of athletes 14 years of age and older a credentialing program geared toward educating the entire coach. These courses include Coaching Principles, Sport First Aid, and Coaching [Sport] Technical and Tactical Skills. To receive the ASEP Bronze Level credential, coaches must complete these courses (CPR certification is also required and may be obtained through a nationally recognized provider).
ASEP is especially appropriate for coaches at the high school, college, Olympic, and serious club-sport levels. In fact, more than 30 state high school associations, 200 colleges and universities, and 13 national governing bodies currently use, require, or recommend ASEP in whole or in part to meet coaching education requirements for their organizations. ASEP sets the standard for coaching education and offers coaches the opportunity to enhance their on-field experience and professional development.
