NCCP Clinics NOW Facilitated ONLINE
These past couple of months have been truly unlike anything we have experienced before. Still, along side your Local & Provincial Associations, we are a Provincial Sport Organization that believes in the power of enriching our members lives through our services, and we are acutely aware that our ability to connect has been instantly impacted.
Considering these unprecedented times, we are sharing updates on what we are doing to help and what we are focusing on… With social distancing & isolation in mind, Baseball BC has been working hard at adapting programming to service members, and Coach Training is no exception. Still wanting to meet the needs of associations & their coaches, we have found a way to offer the same NCCP training. Rather than in person clinics during this time, the same training will be facilitated ONLINE. We have trained 8 BC Coach Developers to facilitate this training on-line. We are confident that coaches will gain the same knowledge & training as in person, & of course, the same credit will be granted. Feedback & some personal experience suggests most will enjoy the experience.
