II. All Managers must complete an online course provided by the National Alliance of Youth Sports (NAYS) and must renew their NAYS accreditation every 3-years. This course is recommended for coaches too, although not mandatory. To complete the NAYS requirement, managers will need to start a NAYS membership. The NAYS membership costs $20 and will include the "coaching youth sports" course and a second course of choice. Depending on the league you are managing in, please choose between "softball", "baseball", or "baseball 8 & under". Once both courses are completed, your membership will be active.

This course can be taken in combination with the NAYS course, but the training module must be completed. Certification can also be achieved independently by following the link provided. If taken via the link below, the manager/coach must provide a copy of the certification to the NRBB Compliance Official.
