Baseball BC Announcement - Making Ethical Decision Evaluation Module

May 4, 2017

Baseball Coaches are now required to take only one Making Ethical Decisions (MED) Evaluation in their Coach Certification Process.  Previously, Baseball Canada NCCP Certifications required coaches to complete 3 evaluations or 1 MED evaluation per coach stream, currently of which, there are 3 Coach Streams.  There are 3 MED evaluations, Competition-Introduction, Competition-Development and Instruction Beginners to match the Baseball Canada’s NCCP Coach Streams (the Community Sport MED evaluation has been eliminated); however, now these evaluations will be appropriately concealed within the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model.  So, when you go to take the MED module now, you will see the LTAD Model displaying the stages and you simply just click on the stage or age you currently are coaching at.  Once completed & passed that applicable MED, you will receive MED credit for each & every Baseball Canada NCCP Coach Stream.  If you already have credit for one or more of the 3 above MED modules, the system will automatically update your status in the upcoming weeks showing MED credit in each coach stream.  It’s beneficial to note that once certified, coaches can complete outstanding MED modules for Professional Development (PD) Points…  If you have more questions, contact a Baseball BC representative…
