ACE Coaching Certification
ASA/USA Softball is proud to introduce the ACE Coaching Certification Program. This program replaces the ASA’s current coaching education program–the VIP (Volunteer Improvement Program) Program. The ACE (Achieve, Certify, Educate) Coaching Certification Program is a brand new certification program, developed and designed to provide softball coaches of all levels – from beginning coaches to experienced veterans – an opportunity to certify as a coach with a national softball organization.
As the National Governing Body of Softball, it is the ASA’s responsibility to ensure that our coaches achieve a certain level of understanding of what their duties are as coach of a youth softball team. The ACE Certification video and the ACE Certification Manual are practical guides to the everyday situations you will encounter as a youth softball coach. After obtaining your ACE certification, you will be well prepared to coach a youth softball team.
A-chieve: A certain level of knowledge.
Certifying as an ACE Coach is a simple, straightforward process. You must attend an ACE Coach Certification Clinic (hosted by your local ASA association) where you will watch the ACE Certification video and sign a “Code of Ethics” pledge. The video covers such topics as Principles of Coaching, Legal Issues in Sports, First Aid, Practice Organization, Coach/Umpire Relations, and Sport Specific Skills. You will then be tested on the material covered in the video. Once you have passed the ACE Certification test and signed the “Code of Ethics” pledge you are an ACE Certified Coach. It is that easy.
