Program & Services

The American Sports Institute provides innovative programs and services on sport and physical education. The PASS, firstPASS, and Advisory programs are suited for educators. All other programs are for the general public as well as educators.
Many of ASI’s programs and services can be presented on-site at schools, organizations, and institutions to groups with a minimum of 15 participants. For trainings held at ASI’s offices, you must have a group of at least six participants. This enables us to schedule the on-site and ASI office trainings at your convenience. All program and workshop fees listed are per person. For more information, call 415-383-5750.
