All coaches are required to have the SafeSport Certificate in 2019. Please click "Read more" then click onto the link below for the FREE course.
Clicking on this link leads you to the USA Baseball/Sport Development website. The course that you need to take to become certified is the “Abuse Awareness for Adults” course.
You will have to LOGIN to the site – it’s the same login if you already have an account with USA Baseball, maybe you use the USA Baseball Mobile Coach APP?
You then place the item in your CART and check out (there is no cost associated with taking the course).
From there you will be able to launch the course. The course itself takes about 30 minutes to complete. Be sure to save and PRINT a copy of your certification, once you have completed the course.
Acceptable Certificates are: USA Baseball, USA Hockey, Trusted Coaches, Virtus Training, U.S. Center for SafeSport & Abuse Prevention Systems . Please let us know of any others and we will look into them.
This past season, MBT made the switch to using bats with the USA sticker on them. For this upcoming season, MBT will again be the only association requiring bats to have the USA sticker on them. MSF and Gopher will again be allowing the bats marked with the 1.15 BPF Stamp, as well as the new USA bats. Bat size requirements can be found in the link provided.
