IN AN INITIATIVE TO ENRICH THE BASEBALL EXPERIENCE OF ALL OUR PLAYERS, TP BASEBALL IS FINANCING THE TRAINING OF OUR VOLUNTEER COACHES IN THE NATIONAL COACHES CERTIFICATION PROGRAM (NCCP)
One of the strengths of of our Toronto Playgrounds Baseball program are the dozens of volunteers who step up to the plate each season and generously give their valuable time and energy to coach our respective House League and Select teams.
Along with parents and teachers, coaches have an immense impact on the development of our children. It is huge responsibilty as a volunteer coach to be a mentor, motivator and leader.
In a initiative to enrich the baseball experience of all the players registered in our baseball program, we are financing the training of our volunteer coaches in the National Coaches Certification Program (NCCP) in conjuction with Baseball Ontario.
The NCCP clinics allow our volunteer coaches to learn the fundamentals of baseball and coaching through a combination of online and in class modules. Once certified, our coaches will have all the necessary tools to train and motivate players to have a fun and successful experience on the diamond.
Twenty-one wide eyed and bushy tailed volunteer coaches were in attendance this afternoon at the first of two scheduled NCCP workshops at the Bickford Centre. Another twenty plus will attend another session next Saturday.
The TP Baseball Committee wishes to thank all the coaches who have taken the time from their busy schedules to participate in the NCCP clinics. It is volunteers like you who make the TP Baseball program the jewel that it is in the community.
