2024 USA/ASA Requirements

Teams are required to be sanctioned by USA/ASA Softball to play in any of the three Fast Pitch Classic tournaments. Please review the following requirements necessary to obtain your sanction.

Coaches must complete a background check and the Safe Sports program at this link. This is required each year. At least one coach must be ACE certified and be present at the games. We recommend that assistant coaches also obtain ACE certification in case the head coach cannot be present for a game or gets ejected from a game.

Concussion training also must be up to date. Concussion training is valid for three years. Here is the concussion training link.

USA/ASA sanction cards cannot be distributed without proof of background checks and completion of the Safe Sports program. Proof of background checks and completion of the Safe Sports program that were completed as requirements for other sanctioning bodies (i.e. USSSA, NSA) are acceptable.
