                      AND

ASEP Instructions:
From the link above, you can order one online Coaching Principles course individually now by clicking on the corresponding icon in the table at the bottom of the ASEP page. Please note sports specific courses at the ASEP site will NOT count for the initial KSHSAA coaching aide requirement.

Athletic Directors: A more convenient option for Athletic Directors is to purchase online Coaching Principles courses together through our multiple Coaching Principles course bundles rather than purchasing courses individually. You'll get multiple courses you need for more than one coach in one transaction. Online Coaching Principles course packages are available for purchase now; just click on your choice of packages from the list on the ASEP page. Or, you can order course packages by calling ASEP at 800-747-5698.

NFHS Instructions:
"Fundamentals of Coaching" is a general coaching course that will meet the first KSHSAA coach aide requirement. It is the first course listed at the NFHS Learn website. Please note sport specific courses at the NFHS site will NOT count for the initial KSHSAA coaching aide requirement.

Kansas ASEP Instructors and contact information

Additional Information on Sports Medicine

If you prefer to take the ASEP Coaching Principles as a classroom course, you need to register for the class through a Kansas ASEP certified instructor in your area (see contact information above). Below is a list of the scheduled upcoming clinics in your Kansas. These clinics are taught through a network of ASEP certified instructors in Kansas. If you enroll in a classroom course, you will receive the course materials from your instructor on site the day of the clinic. You cannot register for a classroom course through the ASEP Web site; all registrations for classroom courses are through the instructor.
