Coaching


We are always looking for coaches for all levels of ball. Baseball Canada has changed the requirements for each level of ball and if you are a previous coach, you may need to take an online module to keep your coaching certification current. Winakwa baseball reimburses you for any courses you may need to take. Please forward your receipts to: winakwabaseball@gmail.com

If you are interested in learning more or checking your current credentials, please visit the Baseball Manitoba website.
