Training & Certification

In order to become a baseball instructor/coach, specific training is required. At a minimum, individuals are expected to have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in fitness or a related field such as exercise and sports science, physiology, kinesiology, nutrition and fitness, physical education, or sports medicine. For those wishing to teach specifically within a school, a teaching degree may also be beneficial. While it is possible to be hired within a high school without a teaching degree, it is highly regarded. Those wishing to become a talent scout will typically have a fitness degree as well as a second degree in sports management. It is also essential for baseball coaches of all levels to be trained in both first aid and CPR, be a minimum of 18 year of age.

Some states require individuals to undertake the Coaching Education Program to become both certified and registered as a coach. It is important to research individual state requirements.
