The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) is part of a national sports system that is built on solid research and sound principles relating to athlete development across different sports, yet, it’s tailored to the specific needs of baseball. This coach program is recognized nationally & and around the world; in fact, Baseball Canada was just honored with The Sheila Robertson Award for demonstrating a consistent approach in valuing and recognizing the role of the coach within baseball, the media, and the public. Baseball’s NCCP gives coaches the confidence to succeed and is the only coach program for baseball recognized in Canada. When you take an NCCP workshop, you’ll not only gain sport-specific technical abilities, but also leadership and decision-making skills.
