OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. --- The Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA) is proud to announce the release of the ACE Coaching Certification presented by Liberty Mutual website for the 2009 season. In 2008, the ACE Program certified approximately 10,000 coaches nationwide. This year the ASA is expecting even more traffic through the ACE website, with a number of new upgrades and added material to the overall curriculum.
A few of the new features to the ACE Coaching Manual are the Softball Safety Awareness Guide and an additional chapter on ‘Responsible Coaching’ presented by Liberty Mutual. The website has also gone through a re-design to make the user experience easier. Also, the ACE Coaching Certification program has added a background check feature as a process of certification. The background checks will be conducted by ChoicePoint, a Lexis Nexis company.
ACE Certified Coaches will also receive coaching tips and a blog from two-time Olympic head coach Mike Candrea that will be part of email blasts delivered once a month. All of these changes will undoubtedly enhance the ACE Experience for coaches and the ASA is looking forward to seeing more coaches become ACE Certified in 2009.
