Women in Coaching Program

ImageWhat is the program? 

Baseball Canada's Women in Coaching Program is an initiative that works towards fostering a more inclusive environment for female coaches in the world of baseball. With opportunities for training, learning and networking, the program allows coaches to grow and develop while breaking barriers for girls and women in baseball. 

What does it consist of?

  • The following NCCP clinics free of charge: Initiation, Pitching & Catching, Teaching & Learning, Absolutes, Skills, Strategies and Planning.
  • Peer-mentor component in which you are paired up with a new participant in your cohort each month.
  • Communication platform in which new coaching resources are posted weekly
  • Opportunity for a female-only Comp-Dev clinic 

After a meticulous selection process for 2023/2024, participants for Cohorts 1, 2 and 3 have been chosen! The selection process was based on a variety of factors including previous NCCP training, coaching experience, coaching aspirations and input from the province.
