Coaches Education Program
Prior to working with any student-athlete (practice or competition), coaches in the AHSAA must meet all requirements of the Coaches Education Program. (Page 61, AHSAA Handbook)
The NFHS also offers additional FREE online courses. These courses have been expanded to reach administrators, students, and other school personnel. Also, the NFHS offers sport-specific courses that can be beneficial to new coaches who are coaching a sport for the first time. You can learn more about these courses at nfhslearn.com.
