ACE Certification and Background Checks Required for ASA Championship Play

As mandated by the ASA National Board of Directors, each Junior Olympic Championship Play team (includes all qualifiers and state tournaments) must have at least one coach within the field of play/dugout ACE Certified in order to participate in Championship Play.  The ACE Certification includes a background check. It is highly recommended that all coaches associated with JO Teams complete the ACE Certification program each year.

Also required for Championship Play, each adult on the field or in the dugout must visually display proof of an ASA background check (current year).  This includes anyone helping a team warm up on the field prior to or during the game and anyone sitting in the dugout during the game (including scorekeepers).
