ASEP Course Availability

BLOOMINGTON - The IESA Coaching Essentials online course designed specifically for coaches working with middle and junior high school athletics is in the final stages of completion. A flyer outlining the program and containing the order form was sent to all member schools in the all-school mailing that left the IESA Office on August 4.

Beginning with the 2009-10 school term, it is a requirement that all IESA coaches who do not hold a valid teaching certificate must successfully complete an approved coaching education program. The requirement applies to all athletic coaches- head, assistant, volunteer, etc- who do not hold a valid teaching certificate. The IESA Board of Directors encourages schools that have non-certified teachers on their coaching staff to pursue the completion of the coaching education requirement as soon as possible.

Registration for the IESA Coaching Essentials program available through the American Sport Education Program (ASEP) is online now. Click on the ASEP logo on the left hand side of the page to be directed to the IESA page on the ASEP website.
