Baseball Canada's Coaching Initiation Program
Welcome to the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP)! This Coach Initiation in Baseball online module is a first step on your coaching pathway in the NCCP. If you are a new coach or a parent interested in getting involved in coaching, this online module is the perfect way to set yourself up for success. 

The Coach Initiation in Baseball online module is designed as an important introduction to the key coaching concepts and educational tools that are the foundation of the NCCP.

Coach Initiation in Baseball includes specific sections to further educate coaches in skill development of young baseball athletes including throwing and receiving, base-running, game strategies, and hitting. The module remains an excellent informational resource for coaches which they can revisit at any time after successful completion of the module.
