Colorado High School Activities Association

Welcome Colorado coaches!

As an approved provider of coaching education to the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA), the American Sport Education Program (ASEP) is eager to work with the CHSAA, Colorado school districts, and high school athletic directors in training Colorado coaches. By implementing the program, you will ensure your coaches are in compliance with Colorado coaching education requirements as well as realize and take pride in the positive impact you and your coaches have on your student-athletes, their parents, and the community at large.

CHSAA has approved the ASEP courses Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid as meeting two of the requirements for obtaining a Permanent Coaching Certificate.

Course options for CHSAA coaches
Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid online courses include accompanying textbooks that are included in the course price. The textbooks are available as e-books or print texts.

E-book course options
In choosing which course format is best for you, consider that with the e-book version, you’ll gain immediate access to the course, nothing will be shipped to you, and you will avoid paying shipping charges. The e-book is accessed through the online course using Adobe Digital Editions (which you can download free of charge). Click for technical requirements for accessing e-books and viewing online courses.

E-book courses à la carte
Coaching Principles online course with e-book $60.00
Successful Coaching, Fourth Edition delivered as e-book

Sport First Aid online course with e-book $40.00
Sport First Aid, Fifth Edition delivered as e-book

E-book course package featuring Coaching Principles
The courses contained in this package meet two of the three certification requirements for a Permanent Coaching Certificate. Purchase Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid e-book courses together and save. After adding each individual course to your shopping cart, enter the promo code ASEPCP, and you’ll get both for the combined price of $80.00. That’s a savings of $20, and you don’t have to pay for shipping!

Successful Coaching, Fourth Edition and Sport First Aid, Fifth Edition delivered as e-books.

Print-book course options
The print-book version provides you with the tangible benefits of having a physical book at your fingertips. The textbook is an excellent reference and is a valuable addition to any coach’s library. The drawbacks are that you have to wait for the book to be shipped to you—and you pay for that shipping. When purchasing courses à la carte, you still get immediate access to your course*, but without the textbook in hand, you’re missing a big piece of the learning experience. To get the most benefit from the course, we recommend you wait for the book to arrive before you dive into the course.
