How do I start my training as a baseball coach?
All coach training by Baseball Canada is now started through an on-line module at http://nccp.baseball.ca. This site was developed by Baseball Canada as part of the Initiation Coach program. It is an inter-active self-directed training tool that you complete at your own pace and convenience. It costs $37.45 (including taxes) and gives you access to on-line video drills, materials, practice plans and skill development tools in an easy to follow format. You continue to have access to the site after completing the on-line portion of the entry course. The focus of this module is on the 'What to Coach?' side of coaching. Once you complete the course you will be given a choice of workshops where the focus will be on the "How to Coach?" side.
