Bow Ridge operates out of the Foothills Athletic Park. Our facility has a full batting cage and a small library of coaching resources located in the batting cage shed that contains DVDs and training aides for our coaches to sign-out. Please limit your sign-outs to 5 days maximum as the quantities are limited and other coaches require the material.
Online Coaching Resources
National Coaching Certification Program Websitehttp://nccp.baseball.ca/Baseball Canada's On-line Library - a complete resource to help get you started and a place to revisit often while you coach children's baseball. This site was developed by Baseball Canada as part of the Initiation Coach program. It is an inter-active self-directed training tool that you complete at your own pace and convenience. It costs $37.45 (including taxes) and gives you access to on-line video drills, materials, practice plans and skill development tools in an easy to follow format. You continue to have access to the site after completing the on-line portion of the entry course. Bow Ridge will reimburse you for this course; submit your receipt to your division coordinator.
