Baseball Ontario has developed additional tools to help Local Associations verify coach certification. As per the Baseball Ontario rules set by the Membership, coaches who do not meet certification requirements will be removed from rosters, and from that point will not be eligible to participate in any Baseball Ontario sanctioned activities including:
regular season tournaments
Coaches who are removed will be considered not in good standing, and therefore will not be covered by our insurance.
The most critical challenge we're facing is missing NCCP numbers for coaches. We have done every lookup available to us, from checking Baseball Canada data to checking 2022 roster data, and we've populated as many numbers as we can.
Now we need your help.
We have created a lookup feature for coaches whose NCCP Number is wrong or missing, sorted by Local Association. We ask that you check this list, and update your coaches' profiles on the BaseballShift roster platform for anyone missing their number. Please note, if coaches can not be verified, they will be removed and deemed not in good standing as outlined above.
Please verify your association's coaches' numbers by July 21st.
Please recognize the sense of urgency, as the longer it takes to update coaches records, the less time coaches will have to complete any missing certification requirements!
Baseball Ontario has created two look-up features to identify coach certification status. A Certified List, and a Non-Certified List. These lists are available to coaches as well, so they can check their status for 2023. The Non-Certified list (for Individuals) will also identify what components still require completion.
Baseball Ontario will continue to offer the training required to complete certification, and these lists will be updated frequently. Coaches will also be able to show proof of completion of modules through the clinic registration platform and/or their Baseball Canada Profile.
