The Nakisaki Humanitarian Consortium, Inc.

The event will include a two-day baseball coaches certification program.

The certification program provides coaches of all levels unprecedented levels of instruction from former Major League Baseball (MLB) players. The first day will include guest instructors providing lecture-style and discussion-based training and an opportunity for the participants to network with the instructors. The second day takes place on-field, demonstrating the concepts introduced on day one.

“We are very excited to partner with the Cheapside Youth Club on this endeavor as it adds another level of community engagement to a wonderful weekend of baseball. It is our desire to train as many St. Elizabeth primary school physical education teachers during this initial training session,” said Hopeton Brown, NHC President.


“Coaches who successfully pass the course will receive a certification that is valid for their entire coaching career with Babe Ruth League, Inc.”

The Coaches Clinic is an educational program aimed at creating a higher standard of coaching education and enhancing the ability of coaches to better serve student-athletes, their teams, and communities. The clinic provides a hands-on learning experience for all coaches focused on some of the key fundamentals of the game, as well as practice planning and team management.

Although the clinic will be geared towards coaches it is open to players as well. Clinic presenters will cover a variety of baseball topics including pitching, fielding, base running and hitting. Discussions will focus on mechanics and philosophy plus the sharing of ideas, drills and tips.

The Baseball Coaches Certification Program will be presented by the Andrew Dixon Foundation. The Foundation will provide a fundamental coaching handbook as well as equipment to include balls, bats, gloves, caps, uniforms, and other necessary items to perpetuate the teaching and development of the initial baseball program scheduled to begin 2023.
