Submission Procedures


IMPORTANT NOTE: You will not be able to submit an abstract until you have renewed your membership for 2024. All conference presenters must be current AASP members. Non-presenting authors DO NOT need to be members.

1. Click on the "Member Sign In" banner in the top right hand corner of the page to log in.

2. In the Member Dashboard, please select "Submit/Manage Conference Abstracts" under Member Management to submit or view previously submitted abstracts. Click the "New Submission" button to submit an abstract.

3. Enter your email address, select the submission type and topic area; enter the presentation description (if applicable); check appropriate award and target audience boxes; enter the abstract title and text. (Click here for a list of abstract categories with descriptions.)

Travel or Young Researcher Awards: If you are a current Student or Early Professional member and would like to be considered for one of AASP's awards, please click on the appropriate box. Please do not check these boxes if you are a Professional, Affiliate or Senior member.

Past AASP Grant Recipient: If work described in your abstract was funded (fully or partially) by an AASP Grant, please check the corresponding box and indicate the year you were funded. This is for program acknowledgement purposes only. Projects fully or partially funded by AASP grants are not guaranteed spots on the conference program.

4. On the following page, you will automatically be listed as the first author and presenter. Use the top form on the page to add AASP member authors, and the bottom form for adding non-member authors. Authors can be moved up, down, removed, or marked as presenter by clicking the corresponding links. In order to present, you must be an AASP member. To request approval for a non-member to be added to your abstract as a presenter for a panel, workshop, or symposia, please contact Chelsea Wooding, AASP's Scientific Program Chair at and indicate your abstract title, name of non-member presenter, the non-member presenter's title (i.e. coach, AD, athlete, other) and abstract text. You may simultaneously submit your abstract with the non-member as an author on the submission. Upon approval, AASP staff will add the non-member as a presenter to the abstract for publication in the program and app should it be accepted for presentation.

5. On the next page, please review your submission and make any necessary edits. This page will also allow you to add abstracts to a symposium.
