Putting On a Clinic

Author: Jim Schmutz, ASEP Executive Director


Thank you for being an ASEP Coaching Principles or Sport First Aid instructor. We very much appreciate the work you are doing in preparing tomorrow's coaches to be effective teachers and leaders and to be up to the ever-increasing challenges that coaches face.

As an ASEP instructor, you're part of a unique group of coaching education champions that has been training scholastic coaches for more than 20 years. Our flagship Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid classroom courses have been long-running coaching education standards and continue to be the preferred training method for numerous state high school associations, school districts, and state departments of education. There's no substitute for face-to-face interaction that's afforded coaches and instructors through classroom instruction. We believe this is the most effective training available to coaches, and we're committed to making in-class training an option for our partners.

In this tough economic climate, we realize that selection of coaching education courses may be dictated by price. For schools, organizations, administrators, and coaches looking to manage costs, ASEP has in the past 12 months lowered its prices on Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid courses, and now it offers the two courses bundled together at even lower prices.

ASEP courses are complemented by our always-there-for-you program services team. Real people are at the ready to process tests, provide reports, support instructors, verify coaches' certifications, and find you the answers you need. We provide everything for administering your program.

On a quarterly basis, we'll be reaching out to you through this ASEP Instructor e-newsletter to keep you up on the lastest ASEP happenings and to provide you with tips to keep your clinics running smoothly. Let us know if you have any ideas for content; we'd especially appreciate hearing about your classroom experiences and sharing them with the entire instructor network. Again, thank you for your hard work and dedication to ASEP - you're performing a valuable service for coaches and the athletes they influence.
