This training is required for the certified coach on record of a provincial team in a category that does not lead to a Western or Canadian Championship. As of January 1, 2020, there is a prerequisite online course for this coaching clinic. It is called Foundations of Coaching Softball – Part 1. The prerequisite is only required for brand new coaches who have no previous softball training on their NCCP transcript. You can find more information about FOCS and how to complete it here.
