Coaches Training and Licensing

Investing in a coach to benefit the players


ASA encourages all coaches in all programs to be licensed, and attend training that produces one.  As such, ASA will pay for coaching training up to "E" level for any coach within ASA and who is continuing for any additional 12-24 months to coach at ASA.  Reimbursements will be provided at the start of the third season coaching at ASA.  To be reimbursed, Coaches will be required to provide the receipt for payment and a copy of the coaching license to the ASA League Manager.  Courses at "D" or above will be considered upon request submitted to

ASA values its investment in kids, and will invest in coaches to better benefit the players.  Reimbursement for training that is not recognized by the state of Maryland or NSCAA will be considered when it is for the benefit of the club, and only if the coach is already licensed to an appropriate level.  In addition, ASA does not reimburse for facility fees.
