Make Ethical Decisions (MED) is still required, but it is no longer integrated in the weekend Community Softball or Comp-Intro NCCP clinics. If you are registered for an upcoming NCCP clinic and have not taken MED yet, you can complete it prior to attending the clinic.
*Coaches are only required to take MED training once, and it is good for all contexts in all sports.

3. If, for any justifiable reason, the certified coach or manager registered with a team is unable to meet the coaching commitments necessary for the team to compete at any of the above mentioned championships, the team may replace its certified coach with another certified coach who can meet all further coaching requirements. The pick-up coaches must be properly registered no later than June 22nd (June 30th north of the 53rd parallel) and approved for the Championship they are participating at least ten (10) days prior.
4. The certified coach or manager substitute must be with the team in the dugout or on the field when it participates in a Provincial Championship. (Teams that do not meet the proper coach certification requirements by June 22nd are ineligible for an approved substitute.) Any team, which earns the right to represent the Province in WCSC/Canadian competition through a Provincial Championship, will forfeit this right if the team did not meet the above requirements.
Note: A team forfeiting its right to represent the Province in a WCSC/Canadian competition because it did not meet the above coaching requirements will be replaced as Provincial representative by the next highest team in the Provincial Championship standings, which did meet the coaching requirements. If no other team indicated intent to represent the Province at a WCSC/Canadian, the team forfeiting will face further action. ($2000 fine).
5. The certified coach must be the coach that signs the line-up card at the pre-game meeting for all games.
1. Head Coach must be Comp-Intro CERTIFIED.
2. Assuming the Certified Head Coach is 1 of the base coaches, whoever else is base coaching only needs to be Comp-Intro TRAINED (the other base coach can also be Certified, but the minimum is Trained).
3. IF items 1 and 2 are in place, any other assistant coaches can be in the dugout/on the bench without Comp-Intro, but CANNOT go on the field/base coach.
