Athletes will achieve NCCP Initiation clinic training while having fun & developing baseball skills

  • We feel strongly that some basic NCCP training will greatly benefit athletes by giving them knowledgeable advantages over other players…Also, it’s FREE to all participating athletes (costs paid for by Baseball BC); parents are encouraged to be trained at a regular cost of $50.

  • NCCP is the national standard in coach training & certification.Initiation is the 1st level of training; it has 2 parts involving an on-line module and the clinic.The on-line module is done on Baseball Canada’s NCCP site here http://nccp.baseball.ca/.

  • If not already registered, one will need to register by clicking the “Register Now” button on the left side of the page; if already registered, proceed by entering Username & Password on top left of page.The on-line Initiation module is offered after registering or by logging into your profile.The on-line module also has a cost of $37.45; however, Baseball BC will make arrangements to cover this cost for players only as well… (Full day attendance is required for NCCP training status)

  • While being Initiation trained, players will be practicing fun filled skill development activities & therefore, athletes will require all practice gear including non-marking running shoes, shorts/sweat pants, T-shirt/hoody/sweat jacket, baseball glove & other position specific equipment, etc…

Our initiative here is to have an informative day in a fun practice environment encouraging personal development & team building while concluding the day with official coach training
