Systemic National Coach and Official Certification Pathways Support


Having provided a full financial subsidy program for the past two calendar years, FHBC is in the process of reviewing its financial subsidy program towards formal coach and official education.

FHBC remains committed to the provision of financial subsidy for formal coach and official education but must now follow through with a review and weigh the program against the availability of supporting financial resources. A notice as to the re-instatement of this program can be expected in February 2023.


FHBC is delighted to announce an investment initiative to include subsidies for formal NCCP Coach Education and complete cost coverage for all levels of formal Umpire Education. All Umpire Certification Courses to the end of 2022 calendar year will be offered free of charge to BC Members.
