Coaches Background Check

The NWCBA has entered into a partnership with USA Baseball to ensure our organization delivers our players and parents a truly differentiated baseball experience with an intense focus on coach & player development.

USA Baseball’s BASE (Baseball Athlete Safety Education) program is a zero-tolerance campaign for any type of abuse within the sport of baseball. Your organization has prioritized athlete safety and is a BASE Organization with USA Baseball. As such, all coaches in the organization are required to complete a standard background check and the USA Baseball Abuse Awareness for Adults course. Please follow the instructions below to complete BASE Compliance.

More information about USA Baseball’s BASE program, including the USA Baseball Ineligible List and the Online Reporting Form for abuse within the sport can be found at
