Please note that for teams entering Elimination Tournaments, coaches must also meet Baseball Canada requirements, which may differ from what is outlined here.

In each year of the Certification Plan (2014 - 2018) Baseball Ontario will subsidize the cost of each module required as part of the certification requirements at $21/module/coach.

Coaches can register for all modules through their online profile at http://nccp.baseball.ca.

At the Board of Directors meeting October 17, 2015, the Board voted in favour of the following:

"All coaches and field managers at Peewee and up, and in their very first year of coaching, will be granted an extension of one (1) calendar year to complete the required modules for their specific division, provided they complete at a minimum the following 5 courses prior to June 15th of their first year coaching:

  1. Coach Initiation in Sport/Coach Initiation in Baseball (Fundamentals) (2 part online module)
  2. Initiation Clinic
  3. Teaching & Learning Clinic
  4. Infielding Clinic
  5. Hitting Clinic"

For the purposes of this exception, "very first year of coaching" shall mean has no previous NCCP baseball-specific training.

In each subsequent year through 2018, additional training may be required depending on the division being coached. You can download the detailed chart here:
