Association Coaching and Education (ACE)

Association Coaching and Education Program


The ACE program is designed to assist associations and districts with coach and parent education.  Each association should have an ACE Coordinator and each District should have a district ACE Coordinator.  This program is an important tool for communication, on-going coach education, and new education initiatives and programs for parents and coaches.  Several districts are already meeting with their ACE coordinators to discuss common problems and to schedule mini-clinics for coaches that are very topic specific.
