How do I become a coach?

Swift Current Minor Baseball has implemented a policy in 2012, that all rep coaches, 11U and up, must complete the coach’s development program that Swift Current Minor Baseball offers in partnership With Baseball Sask and Baseball Canada.

1. Safe Places Certification

We require all coaches to be City of Swift Current Safe Places Youth Certified as of April 1st, 2024. Our intent is not to scare off any potential coaches, but to protect the most vulnerable person, the player. If you have the Safe Place certificate, we will need a copy to check the database. If chosen, your respective division director will be in touch with you to ensure you are certified. To apply for your Safe Places Youth Certified Certification, please visit their website here: 

2. Initiation Coaches Clinic - Online Component

To coach a team for Swift Current Minor Baseball, you need to complete the Initiation Coaches Clinic. There are two components to this; an online component and an in-class component.

All Coaches must register for an account on the Baseball Canada NCCP website ( to access baseball NCCP content. Once you have registered for an account all NCCP content will be listed on the STATUS page. Registration for in person clinics is also listed on the CLINICS page. You must complete the online component before you can register for the class component.

There are 2 online modules that all coaches must complete to be eligible to register for the in person clinics - Coach Initiation in Sport and Coach Initiation in Baseball Fundamentals. Online clinics must be completed on a desktop or laptop computer. Mobile phones will not work for online clinics.

All coaches must be registered and paid online as clinics are submitted electronically to the Coaches Association directly from the Baseball NCCP website - coaches will not get credit for attending clinics if they are not registered on the website.

Coaches Code of Conduct

Coaching a youth sport program such as minor baseball in Swift Current is a privilege that is not to be taken for granted.  As a coach appointed by the board of directors of the Swift Current Minor Baseball (SCMB), you have an important role in the development in the young children in our community. We strive to teach each child the positives of good values and sportsmanship, fair play, and teamwork.  In order to make sure each coach is acting in the best interest of the child and minor baseball the SCMB Board of Directors has developed a Coaches Code of Conduct for interactions with players, parents, fans, coaches and umpires.


1)  Players- When there are interactions with players, the appropriate language and behaviour is expected

  1. a) Language- At no time is yelling or swearing at a child acceptable. As a coach you are a mentor and should focus on the positives.  A coach should always be looking for a reason to praise and encourage players.
  2. b) Discipline- At no time is physical discipline of a player acceptable. Coaches have a variety of discipline measures at their disposal including restrictions to the dugout, dismissal from a game or practice, and from the SCMB board of directors, a dismissal from the team.


2)  Parents / Fan- Coaches are expected to interact with parents with a professional manner. Appropriate language and behaviour is expected at all times.  At no times is a coach allowed to respond to a comment from a fan during a game.


3)  Coaches- Coaches are expected to interact with other coaches in a professional manner.  At no time should a coach yell from the dugout to the other at the opposing coach.  Coaches are to address other coaches between innings and with the umpire present.  If the need arises that a coach has to talk to the other coach he is to call for a timeout to the umpire and the coaches will meet at the home plate.


4)  Umpires- Coaches are expected to interact with umpires with a professional manner.  At no time should a coach yell from the dugout, 1st base coach’s box, or 3rd base coaches box to the umpire.  Coaches are to address the umpires between innings with the umpire’s permission.  If the need arises to talk to the umpire during the inning the coach will then call a timeout and ask the umpires permission to talk. If the coach ask for the umpire’s permission to discuss a call the umpire will be more willing to listen.


5)  Drugs, alcohol, tobacco- A coach determined to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be asked to leave the field immediately.  An infraction of this type with permission from the SCMB board will result in a termination from coaching. Tobacco in any forms is strictly prohibited.


In the event a complaint is received by the SCMB Board of Directors of a coach failing to comply with the above Code of Conduct the Board may decide to 1) dismiss the case, 2) draft a warning letter or 3) revoke all coaching privileges.  By signing in the space below, you are agreeing that you have read and understand the Coaches Code of Conduct for Swift Current Minor Baseball.
