2017 NCCP Coach Certification Clinics
RDMBA encourages volunteers to coach our young athletes. Coaches can have a positive impact on our players and can develop long lasting friendships. If you have the desire to lead our kids with passion and encouragement in a positive manner you can contact the RDMBA office for more information.
To find out what courses you need to have to coach at a certain level there is an excellent tool on the Baseball Canada Website under Coaches Corner. You just follow the instructions in Coaching goals and put in what level you will be coaching and whether it is competitive or not and it will outline what is needed for certification.
