Coaching Certification 101

Oceanside Minor Baseball Association

2015

While not mandatory during Spring (House) League, Oceanside Minor Baseball Association (OMBA) strongly encourages all coaches to become certified through the training program offered by the Baseball Canada National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). The NCCP is a collaborative program of the Government of Canada, provincial/territorial governments, national/provincial/territorial sport federations, and the Coaching Association of Canada.  The Coaching Association of Canada (CAA) is a national organization with a primary objective to enhance the youth athlete experience through quality coaching.

Those interested in taking coaching training must contact their respective Division Coordinator (see the “Contacts” tab on the OMBA website) in advance to confirm OMBA will refund the cost of their course upon proof of successful completion and invoice.

Initiation in Training/ Initiation Trained - All coach training by NCCP is started through an on-line module at http://nccp.baseball.ca, followed by completion of a half-day clinic in a classroom setting. Just type this URL into your computer address line. This on line module was developed by Baseball Canada as part of the Initiation Coach program. It is an inter-active, self-directed training tool that you complete at your own pace and convenience. The on line course provides access to on-line video drills, materials, practice plans and skill development tools in an easy to follow format. You continue to have access to the site after completing the on-line portion of the entry course. The half day classroom clinic requires each participant to be responsible for their registration through the NCCP website.  Upon completion of both the on line module and the classroom clinic you receive “Initiation Trained” certification.

Regional Trained/ Regional Certified - Once you receive your Initiation Trained status you can pursue the Regional Trained and then Regional Certified status.

Provincial Trained/ Provincial Certified – For those coaching a Bantam AAA or Midget AAA team additional training and evaluation by NCCP staff is required. Coaches must also refer to Rule 9.02 of the BC Baseball Association Rule Book.
