Coaches are and have been important partners to ACE from the program’s inception. From asking for input in program design, to communicating throughout the application and selection process, to providing updates on the on-site experience and back-on-campus programming, the ACE program works closely with coaches to develop programs that give student-athletes a unique opportunity to engage with communities abroad while still maintaining peak level performance and fitness.

In addition to working with the coaching staff of each team, we also partner with athletic trainers, nutrition, and sports medicine at both schools to ensure that all participants receive the best possible preparation and care before, during and after their participation in ACE.


Questions about the ACE program? We’ve compiled a list of FAQs which answers many of the common questions coaches ask about the program including details about the on-site experience, training and nutrition resources, and ways to highlight ACE during the recruiting process. These will inform you on how we ensure your student-athlete participants have a safe and transformative experience with ACE and how you, as their coach, can support your ACE student-athlete participants.
