Beginning in 2015, the Woodbury Athletic Association has changed the way coaching certification is done. Under the old policy, coaches were required to be certified every three years in a Nationally recognized Coaching Program. The old process entails Coaches attending a class every three years, the same class as they attended before. Under the new system, each coach will have to attend one of five 2 hour sessions that will be presented by the Positive Coaching Alliance. Each coach will have to attend one session per year every year they coach. The course content will be different each course and the coaches name will be included in the national data base of trained coaches.
As future clinic dates become available we will post details here.
The Registration "Additional Baseball Training" is not currently available.
Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports is a free, online course available to coaches, parents, and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion. It features interviews with leading experts, dynamic graphics and interactive exercises, and compelling storytelling to help you recognize a concussion and know how to respond if you think that your athlete might have a concussion.
Once you complete the training and quiz, you can print out a certificate, making it easy to show your league or school you are ready for the season.
