American cornhole association ambassadors

Who Are ACA Ambassadors?

ACA Ambassadors are volunteer representatives and unofficial spokespersons for the American Cornhole Association that help facilitate tournaments. All of our ambassadors go through an application and training process to ensure professional tournaments and representation of the ACA.

With our ACA Ambassadors, it is our goal to promote and grow the sport of cornhole.

At the ACA, our goal is to promote and grow the sport of cornhole, bringing it to people of all ages and experience levels.

AMBASSADOR SPOTLIGHT

Tyler scott

ACA Tournaments Director

"Graduating from Greeneview High School and Wright State University in Ohio, I grew up playing cornhole often. After leaving the Army with six years of service, I decided to take a position in the ACA where I can directly oversee the sport's growth and help others enjoy this remarkable pastime!"

Terry Seigfried

State Ambassador | Ohio

"I wanted to join the ACA as an ambassador because I really love cornhole and this was a way for me to be around the game and meet new people. The ACA is dedicated to creating an event that is favorable for families to come to and have a good time while still satisfying their competitive spirit."

Jayson Miletta

State Ambassador | Pennsylvania

"I decided to become an ACA state ambassador because I felt a family feeling from this company. Everyone is unselfish and always looks to work together. This helps us all be more successful and grow the game of cornhole together!"

The ACA currently has Ambassadors in six states. Find an ambassador to help facilitate and officiate a professional cornhole tournament for your next event, benefit, or regularly-occurring tournament league. Ambassadors are a great resource for help needed beyond the ACA Rules or Tournaments resources.

Interested in Becoming An Ambassador?

The ACA is looking for cornhole enthusiasts that connect with the ACA mission to share the competitive fun of cornhole with their communities. Find out if your area needs "cornhole help" and consider applying.

Represent the ACA

Share your cornhole enthusiasm with like-minded individuals by representing our professional organization.

Enrich Your community

Bring some excitement and support to your community through events and fundraisers.

Grow the Sport

Help the ACA share the joy cornhole can bring to players of all ages and levels. Anyone can play!

Support fair play

At the ACA, we believe cornhole should be enjoyed by everyone, that's why we support fair play.

Becoming an Ambassador

At the American Cornhole Association, we believe cornhole is for everyone. That's why we're building an ACA Ambassador program that's inclusive to the average cornhole enthusiast interested in organizing cornhole events.

There's a ton of perks in running cornhole events as an ACA Ambassador. It's a great way to activate some excitement in your community, generate earnings, and play cornhole often. Plus, as an ACA Ambassador, you can expect one-on-one support from our National Tournament Director to maneuver through finances, scheduling, or help in answering other general questions when organizing events.

Here's how the entry process looks:

1. After submitting your application, you'll attend an introductory meeting with the ACA's National Tournament Director to get to know the ACA Ambassador program and meet our cornhole community.

2. If your application is accepted, we will work together to assign you to a designated territory position, either in your state or local area.

3. The final step is attending a one-on-one meeting with the ACA's National Tournament Director and/or your assigned ACA State Ambassador (if applicable) to officially welcome you to the ACA family and discuss any further inquiries you may have.

Once you're an Official ACA Ambassador, you'll attend exclusive ACA Ambassador meetings to help you further develop as a cornhole event organizer growing the sport of cornhole in your community!

It is imperative to the ACA that the organization of any event be done professionally and safely. ACA has created a conduct policy for ambassadors to teach and exercise professionalism in the sport and show patrons that ACA Ambassador-run events are welcoming to all, fun, and proficiently run (more specifically, the best cornhole community there is!)

ACA AMBASSADOR CONDUCT POLICY

1. Ambassadors must present themselves professionally, wearing business casual attire when organizing an event.

2. Ambassadors will not use offensive or foul language during an event.

3. Ambassadors will not use aggressive language, behavior, or rhetoric towards patrons and players.

4. Ambassadors will not make or demonstrate sexual gestures or behaviors, especially in a manner directed at an individual or specified group.

5. Ambassadors will not cheat and/or give special consideration to any group of players.

6. Ambassadors will organize events in areas that have working and accessible restrooms.

7. Ambassadors will follow accreditation rules for tournaments outlined by the ACA National Tournament Director.

8. Ambassadors will not be endorsed, sponsored, or affiliated with any illegal drug or sex-related company/organization.

9. Ambassadors have a duty to safely de-escalate any arguments or aggressive situations at events.

10. Most importantly, ACA Ambassadors will help cornhole players and families have fun!

The main goal of an ACA Ambassador should be to help grow the sport of cornhole.

Local-Level Ambassador Responsibilities

Local ACA Ambassadors run cornhole events at the city, town, or township level. Typically, these individuals will operate weekly blind draw events, a weekly league, or singles tournaments. Events at this level will have, on average, less than 40 individuals playing in the tournaments or league. Ambassadors at this level can make a profit from taking a percentage of pot as an organizer. The ACA recommends 70% payout to players, meaning the organizer will take 30% of the pot for their efforts. They also make profit from raffles and local sponsorship.

1. Even if hosted by a Local ACA Ambassador, events are only considered accredited when approved by a State ACA Ambassador.

2. If no State ACA Ambassador is in place, events are automatically accredited upon completion of the ACA Ambassador Training Program by the local organizer.

3. Local Ambassadors will utilize their state's ACA page to display tournaments.

State-Level Ambassador Responsibilities

State ACA Ambassadors take on a more significant role than local-level organizers. These individuals are looking to make cornhole a larger part of their life on a part-time basis. State ACA Ambassadors oversee the Local ACA Ambassador-run events of their state and any they organize on their own.

1. State Ambassadors organize once-a-month, large tournaments or events with several tournaments, as well as year-long leagues all throughout the state if desired.

2. The typical turnout of events at this level runs from 40 – 300 individuals in one tournament.

3. Profit is also made:

(a) From the payout of these tournaments and through raffles.

(b) By selling ACA products to organizations. A State Ambassador will have the opportunity to grow the sport by working with organizations to run their own cornhole events. If products are sold from these efforts, the State ambassador will receive a 10% commission from the sales.

4. State Ambassadors also assist and help local organizers in the state receive their accreditation and be successful.

State ACA Ambassadors oversee the state ACA social page (Facebook) that displays all information within the state for the ACA events, including event communication related to and organized by Local Ambassadors and organizations.
