Free USA Baseball Coaching Certification

The USA Baseball Coaches Certification Program is a certification pathway for any and all individuals who are currently coaching baseball or aspire to coach at any level of the game. The program aims to create a higher standard of coaching education and enhance the ability of coaches to better serve their athletes, their team and the communities.

The program aspires to create a culture of continuing education, professional development and active mentorship among the coaching community. It is a call to action for coaches to learn and grow by interacting with one another, allowing veteran coaches to pass their knowledge and guidance down to fellow coaches with less experience. By encouraging coaches to build relationships with one another and give back to the game, the program aims to unify the coaching community in order to make the sport stronger at all levels.

The pathway consists of three certification levels ("A," "B," and "C"), which are each free of cost, and require the completion of a series of courses, resources and programs offered by USA Baseball. The curriculum includes educational resources that cover important topics such as health and safety, creating a positive environment, recognizing and responding to misconduct, practice planning, game management, skill-specific development and hosting local coaching clinics in your own community.

This program is for all members of the baseball coaching community, regardless of age, level, or experience. With the launch of the Coaches Certification Program, USA Baseball hopes to proliferate a culture of continued development amongst the coaches of our great game.
