All coaches wanting to be the “certified coach on record” at a Provincial Championship are required to be at least Community Softball trained plus the Make Ethical Decisions Online Evaluation (MED). If you are coaching a team that is in a category that leads to Post-Provincial play, such as a Western or Canadian Championship, you are required to be at least Competition Introduction certified, including the MED. 

If you are unsure of which level of training/certification you are required to have, use the Link Tools on Softball Canada’s website to help!
