Lake Zurich Baseball and Softball Association

Welcome Lake Zurich Baseball & Softball Association Coaches!

The American Sport Education Program (ASEP) is proud to partner with LZBSA to bring ASEP coaching education online courses to LZBSA coaches. 

In an effort to enhance the overall experience for both players and coaches, the LZBSA is offering two levels of coaching education for its managers and coaches:

(1) Coaching Youth Baseball/Softball – Geared toward coaches who are working with players ages 13 and under.

(2) Coaching Baseball/Softball Technical and Tactical Skills – An upper level-course for highly competitive club coaches and those who are working with players in high school and college.

To order your online course, just click on the corresponding online course icon in the table at the bottom of the page.

After placing your order, you will have immediate access to your online course. Upon completion of the course (80 percent is considered a passing score), you will be entered in the ASEP National Coaches Registry, an online listing of coaches who've completed ASEP courses. From the registry, you can view your course transcript and print a certificate of course completion at any time. With your listing in the directory, you receive a 10 percent discount on all non-course purchases from the ASEP site.
