2018 MSHYB Coach's Registration



All individuals interested in coaching in MSHYB must go through an annual registration and certification process. Please read through these instructions carefully and proceed through the steps in order. If you follow these instructions, it will be an easy and painless process.  Coaches must complete Step 1 (NAYS membership), Step 2 (concussion training) and Step 3 (MSHYB registration) prior to attending one of the in-person certification sessions (Step 4).   ALL 4 STEPS must be completed by March 4, 2018.



Step 1: Create a new membership or renew your existing membership with NAYS online. All new and returning coaches must have an active membership as a baseball coach with the National Alliance for Youth Sports Coach Training and Membership Program (NAYS, formerly known as NYSCA), the country’s largest coach training and certification program. An active membership is one that expires after August 31, 2018. The cost of a NAYS initial membership or annual renewal is $20 and is payable online directly to NAYS by credit card.

  • Returning coaches (those who have been a NAYS member in the recent past for baseball or another sport) – please click here to renew your membership. If you currently have a valid NAYS membership for baseball that expires after August 31, 2018, then you do not need to renew with NAYS at this time.  NOTE: if you have a valid NAYS membership for another sport but not for baseball, you must add baseball as a sport by logging into your NAYS account and clicking on “Add a Sport.”
  • New coaches (those who have not been a NAYS member in the recent past or at all) – please click here to become a NAYS member. Your membership will not be active until you complete the NAYS basic and baseball-specific training sessions. When you are asked to choose a Chapter, please click on “Millburn Rec Dept. – 794.”

Step 2: Complete the mandatory concussion awareness training session. Concussion awareness training was added in 2016 and is required to be completed annually under MSHYB’s Concussion Policy. This online training is provided free of charge through NAYS. (At this time, we are not accepting concussion training from other organizations such as the CDC.) In order to be considered current for the 2018 season, you must have completed or retaken the concussion training after August 31, 2017.

  • If you are completing the concussion training for the first time, log into your NAYS account, click on “Additional Trainings” and choose “Concussion Awareness.”
  • If you completed the concussion training last winter or spring for the 2017 season, you will need to repeat the training session. Under Membership Info, click on “Access Clinic/Training History” and then click “Re-certification” next to “Concussion Training.”

Step 3: Register online as a coach with MSHYB. Please  click here to access the MSHYB coach’s registration page, where you will provide background information, review required documents and provide required authorizations. Once you have successfully completed this step, you will immediately receive a confirmation email from our system.  IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION EMAIL IMMEDIATELY WITH THE SUBJECT “2018 COACH REGISTRATION RECEIPT,” YOU DID NOT REGISTER CORRECTLY. A successful registration does not mean that you have been certified as a coach by MSHYB. You must have an active NAYS membership (Step 1), complete the concussion training (Step 2), attend an in-person certification session (Step 4), and pass a mandatory background check.

Step 4: Attend one of the mandatory in-person Coaches’ Certification Sessions. We have scheduled three of these sessions – one session is exclusively for returning coaches and the other two may be attended by either new or returning coaches:

  • Session 1 – RETURNING COACHES ONLY: Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 8:45am in the Bauer Center (abbreviated session, 60 minutes)
  • Session 2 – BOTH NEW AND RETURNING COACHES: Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 8:45am in the Bauer Center (full session, 90 minutes)
  • Session 3 – BOTH NEW AND RETURNING COACHES: Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 8:45am in the Bauer Center (full session, 90 minutes)

Please arrive 30 minutes early to check in. Doors close promptly at the start time. Please bring a valid photo ID (driver’s license or passport) along with the $25 registration fee (payable by check or in cash – exact change appreciated) to cover the cost of running the mandatory background check.
