OTTAWA - Baseball Canada and the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) have joined forces to make it easier to become a trained National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) baseball coach.
Every aspect of NCCP for baseball – from the copywriting, to the design, to an interactive coaching tool on the NCCP for baseball web portal – has been redeveloped with one goal in mind: to encourage more coaches to participate in training to become NCCP certified. All of these new resources put together will make it much easier for baseball coaches to find the NCCP courses that are right for them, and to plan their ongoing training.
“We are changing the face of sport, one sport at a time, starting with baseball,” stated Nancy Spotton, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at CAC. “Ensuring that all of the information available to coaches is clear and consistent will make it easier for coaches to get trained. Trained coaches create better athletes and happier kids that will stay involved in sport longer and lead active, healthy lives.”
“We are very happy to launch these new coaching resources in collaboration with the Coaching Association of Canada,” said André Lachance, Baseball Canada’s Manager of Baseball Operations. “With many different divisions and classes across the country the utilization of this tool will answer the question, ‘what do I need to coach at a given level?’. This will become an invaluable resource for Baseball Canada, each provincial office, and coaches throughout Canada.”
