If I would like to coach my child`s team, is it necessary to have coached baseball before?
No. We encourage Mom’s and Dad’s to get involved with coaching. We offer training opportunities for coaches through BC Baseball. Watch for notices about coach training under the Coaches & Managers tab on our website or check out www.nccp.baseball.ca for information.
Does my child have to attend any evaluations or try-outs?
Players in Tadpole and Mosquito are asked to attend an evaluation day which is usually about 1½ to 2 hours. This will help the coaches to assess each player’s skill so that the teams can be as balanced as possible. For PeeWee, Bantam and Midget, tryouts are held for our AA and AAA teams. Evaluations are held for all other players so that each player’s skill can be assessed. This will assist us in making the teams as balanced as possible Evaluation and Try-Out dates and times will be announced on our website and via email.
