Coaches Training, Clinics and ACE Certification

The SoCal ASA Junior Olympic Program exists to help develop the interest, skills and desires of our ever‐growing younger generation of sotball players. The program offers various classifications of fastpitch play, with emphasis on fun and providing a positive, supportive environment for all participants.

The program is committed to building healthy, productive and confident youth through the softball experience. This goal can best be accomplished through the continuing education of the coaches and other volunteers involved in the program. No other softball organization offers the intensive and informative coaching education experience that our program provides through the SoCal ASA annual coaching clinics and the ACE Certification Program. The ACE Certification is available at the SoCal ASA coaching clinics and/or online through the ASA/USA National Office.
