Southwest Wheelchair Athletic Association

Welcome Southwest Wheelchair Athletic Association coaches!

Southwest Wheelchair Athletic Association is proud to partner with the American Sport Education Program (ASEP) to offer ASEP online courses for training our coaches. It’s the goal of Southwest Wheelchair Athletic Association  to ensure that our coaches are the best they can be. And through the educational opportunities afforded to you through ASEP, you’ll be better equipped to manage your team, communicate with players and parents, plan your season and practices, provide technical and tactical skill instruction, and provide the best sport experience possible for you and your athletes.

As a coach, you should have the course completed prior to your first practice. Once you’ve completed your course, you may print/e-mail your transcript and course completion certificate from the ASEP National Coaches Registry. 

Below are some resources that may complement your program.
