BFA Coaching Requirements
As USA Baseball members, Baseball For All requires all those coaching at BFA Nationals or any other Baseball For All-sanctioned event to complete the following paperwork to be eligible. (This includes any administrators, volunteers, and/or parents who will be interacting with players on the field.)
These are mandatory and must be completed at least one week before the start of the event.
Details: Please list “Baseball For All” as your team.
Note: If you are a coach living outside of the United States, please complete and submit an equivalent background check from your country of residence.
