Registration Available for 2005-06 NFCC Courses

Coaches looking to enhance their knowledge of fastpitch softball can do so from some of the top coaches and instructors in the country by registering for one of the eight National Fastpitch Coaches College courses offered for the 2005-06 academic year. 

Registration and information on the NFCC is currently available on the NFCA Web site by clicking here

The eight courses will be offered in 10 different locations, and the final course in the NFCC curriculum, Team Management/Game-Day Coaching, will debut Dec. 3 following the 2005 NFCA National Convention in Orlando, Fla. 

Many courses will be held on various college campuses across the nation, while three courses will be offered at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, Fla., prior to and following the national convention. Two classes will also be held in June in Oklahoma City, Okla., during the 2006 Women’s College World Series. 

The new course won’t be the only first for the NFCC this year, however, as 31 coaches are two courses shy of becoming the inaugural class to earn the prestigious distinction of Four-Star Master Coach. 

A number of the more than 500 different coaches who have enrolled in an NFCC course do so to progress toward Master Coach certification, while others use the courses to progress toward a Master’s degree from Texas Woman’s University. Other coaches take the weekend courses simply for the enjoyment of enhancing their softball knowledge. 

The NFCC this year is expanding its reach beyond the borders of the United States. In an agreement with the International Softball Federation, NFCC courses will be offered in Plant City, Fla., Aug. 31-Sept. 4; in Prague Dec. 8-12, and in Kuala Lumpur Dec. 15-19. The ISF is using the NFCC curriculum as a way of furthering knowledge of the sport in the international community.
