Attention Coaches: 9 More NCCP Clinics in June

May 11, 2017

Baseball BC, the Provincial Sport Organization for baseball in British Columbia, is excited to announce that they will be hosting 9 NCCP clinics in the month of June.  Scott Mackenzie, the coordinator of BC’s National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) for baseball, says “the partnerships developed with local baseball associations over the years have evolved into wonderful relationships & NCCP Training is no exception”.  Local associations throughout BC have combined to host over 50 NCCP baseball clinics this year so far.  Most program delivery focusses on local association relationships resulting in convenient local NCCP access for coaches in that area. “We want to ensure baseball coaches have as many opportunities as possible to gain coaching knowledge, tools & confidence; we believe the NCCP play important roles when developing our youth into great players & respectable adults” adds Scott. 

The clinics that Baseball BC added to the Provincial Schedule are in the popular Competition Stream which will include the 4 Regional Clinics, the 2 Provincial Clinics and continuing from last year’s initiative, 3 more Development Coach Clinics.  Baseball BC staff says they are also working on hosting Instruction Stream clinics this season as well, but nothing is finalized yet… “In addition to developing as a coach & providing continual learning opportunities, these Competition Stream Clinics should help provide coaches the ability to meet Provincial & National Coach Training requirements”, concludes Baseball BC’s Executive Director David Laing.
