The NFCA recognizes those coaches who have a specific, vested interest in hitting and pitching education and who have committed to their personal and professional growth through NFCA-sponsored education. An official NFCA coaching endorsement will be provided to coaches who attend three pitching or hitting-specific courses in a four-year period. To view eligibility criteria and see a list of endorsement-eligible courses, please click the button below.


After you complete two NFCC courses you will receive a one-star award and be honored as a One-Star Master Coach. The process continues with the completion of every two new courses until you have taken eight unique NFCC courses. 

One-Star Master Coach = 2 courses

Two-Star Master Coach = 4 courses

Three-Star Master Coach = 6 courses

Four-Star Master Coach = 8 courses

At that time, you will receive an award being honored as a Four-Star Master Coach. Many coaches repeat courses for different perspectives on the content and some choose to not complete all eight courses, and that is just fine. However, we do want you to know that if you complete all NFCC courses the NFCA believes you deserve special recognition.
