Pony Coaching Certification

Recently Pony baseball/softball has offered online coaching instruction and certification. I took the course and was really surprised how good it was. It covered every aspect of coaching youth baseball and offered everything from how to deal with poor officiating to offensive and defensive strategies.
The course is $20 and is downloadable online by pdf file. The certification test is taken online and once the course is passed you can print the certification. The certification is good for 3 years.
If Elwood coaches want to get certified, EBSA will reimburse the $20 fee by subtracting it off the cost of the team coaches shirt.
I highly recommend this course to newer coaches, the information can be accessed from Pony at any time for refresher and is a great guideline going forward.
