Get your coaching accreditation!

Obtaining one’s coach accreditation is an obligatory requirement of both Baseball Australia and Baseball NSW. This requirement applies to coaches, assistant coaches, and “specialist” coaches.

In July 2020, Baseball Australia revised their coach accreditation system and integrated the USA Baseball Certification courses. There are 3 levels of accreditation, A, B and C, which are recognised nationally. As such, we have updated our coach accreditation requirements, with the USA Baseball Certification being a mandatory component of the BNSW accreditation.
