ASEP Baseball Coaching Certification
The Sparta Township Parks and Recreation Department REQUIRES that all managers and coaches complete an online coach certification process. All Coaches must be certified. Some of you have already completed this certification in past years and do not need to repeat it. If you are not certified, then please visit www.ASEP.com.  The certification costs $20 and you will be reimbursed by Sparta Little League Baseball. The rec department MUST have a copy of your Certificate of Completion on file BEFORE you can be on a field coaching. Please complete your certification and drop the Certificate of Completion off at the Parks and Recreation office (lower level of the Sparta Public Library, 22 Woodport Road, Sparta). Once they have the certificate, they will issue and mail a certification card that you will be expected to have with you at the field. Below are detailed instructions for accessing the correct course:


  • Go to www.asep.com
  • Select the "Courses" tab at the top left of the screen.
  • Select "Shop for an online course," from the drop-down menu.
  • Select the blue "Coaches" tab toward the center of the screen
  • Scroll down through the available courses until you find, "Coaching Youth Baseball - PDF"
  • Once selected, you will come to a screen where you will see in red lettering, "Organization Requiring or Recommending this Course." Scroll down through the drop down box to find and select, "Sparta Township Recreation."
  • You can then add it to your cart. 
Concussion Certification
Also available online is the REQUIRED Concussion Policy.  This is a FREE course.  Go to www.nays.org/resources/more/free-concussion-training/  The rec department also REQUIRES a copy of this Certificate for the Recreation files. Both certificates can be sent in at the same time.
Managers Meeting and Coach Training
A meeting will be taking place that all managers need to attend. The date will be determined soon. At this meeting, you will be receiving important information that you will need throughout the season. Only team managers need to attend this meeting. 
In addition, we are providing a training session for coaches at a day and time to be determined soon. The training will be conducted by professional baseball coaches at the Hit & Run Sports Center located at 15 Weldon Road, Lake Hopatcong, NJ 07849. The purpose of the training is to teach drills and provide strategies for running an effective and efficient practice where players and active and engaged.
