Founded in 1986, the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP) is an international, multidisciplinary, professional organization with over 2,300 members in 57 countries.

AASP promotes the development of science and ethical practice in the field of sport psychology and offers certification (CC-AASP) to qualified members with a masters or doctorate degree that have met specific course requirements in sport psychology and have completed an extensive, supervised work experience to develop competency in enhancing performance from a psychological standpoint.

Sport psychology consultants and professionals work with athletes, coaches, non-sport performers (dancers, musicians), business professionals, and high-risk occupations (military, firefighters, police).
