ASEP (American Sport Education Program) Coaching Certification
All coaches in Modesto City Schools are required to complete and pass the ASEP mandated certification program approved by the District prior to their effective date. All coaches, both returning and new-hires, must have both segments of the ASEP training completed prior to coaching. Upon completion of both segments (#1 and #2), these coaches can be re-appointed in any capacity in the future, provided, they have the necessary expertise, complete the “hiring” process, and have all necessary clearance documents on file with Human Resources. Exceptions to the classroom session being completed prior to coaching until the next available class will be made only in rare situation after review and approval by the Senior Director, Human Resources. There will be no exceptions to the online portion.
Modesto City Schools uses a combination of seminars (identified as Segment #1 and Segment #2) and they must be completed in this order. The certificate issued at the conclusion of Segment #1 is your “ticket” into Segment #2. Coaches need to complete both segments before they are certified to coach in Modesto City Schools. This procedure applies to both paid and volunteer coaches.
