AASP has partnered with the National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA) to provide their members, who are former professional basketball players in the NBA, ABA, WNBA, and Harlem Globetrotters, access to sport psychology consultants that can help them transition to life after basketball.
AASP's certification program is transitioning to a new process in 2017. Applications to the new CC-AASP Certification Program will be accepted starting October 1, 2017.
