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.
Available online, the ACE Coaching Certification program is available to any coach that participates in ASA play. The ASA certifies more than 25,000 coaches each year.
The ACE (Achieve, Certify, Educate) Coaching Certification Program is a coaching 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 in the United States, 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 videos and the ACE Certification Manual CD-Rom 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.
Here is a quick run through of the ACE Coaching Certification program and how one would become certified and achieve the highest level of ACE Certification
The first step to complete for any coach who is attempting to become certified using the ACE Online System is a profile lookup. If you are an existing coach who is coming to the site to complete another level of certification your profile should be located and you should be able to continue from the position that you left off. For example if John Doe has completed ACE Levels 1 and 2 in an ACE Clinic through his State or Metro association, when he looks up his profile the system will recognize this and make ACE Level 3 available for purchase and completion. Coaches can get their member ID number from an ID card produced through RegisterASA.com.
For the system to properly find your coaches profile, you must enter your information (i.e. member ID, first name, last name and date of birth). If you are a previously registered coach and the system does not find your profile properly, DO NOT create a new profile. Instead, contact the ACE Administrator at the ASA National Office. The administrator's contact information can be located on the ACE Website under the Contact ASA tab.
The cost for ACE Certification is as follows: $25.00 for Level 1; $20:00 for all other levels.
If you have never registered with ASA you will need to create a new profile before you begin the ACE certification program.
