Softball Coaching Endorsements

The NFCA recognizes coaches who have a vested interest in hitting and pitching and are committed to their personal and professional growth through NFCA-sponsored education. Introduced in 2019, an official NFCA coaching endorsement certificate will be provided to coaches who attend three pitching- or hitting-specific courses in a four-year period.

After the ‘initial’ endorsement is earned, endorsements must be "renewed" by taking at least one applicable NFCA educational course National Fastpitch Coaches College (NFCC) course or Pre-Convention seminar a minimum of once every three years. Every year will have at least one endorsement-eligible course offered in both hitting and pitching.

Courses taken between 2018 and 2021 can be applied to coaches wishing to earn their endorsements. A current, full list of courses that may be used for your coaching endorsement are below.
