East Cherokee Baseball



All coaches at East Cherokee Baseball are volunteers and serve with approval of the Baseball Group of East Cherokee Board of Directors.  To be qualified to coach, ECB requires you to submit and pass a background check and complete an online certification course at the coach's expense. We have listed below more details on the background checks and online training course as well as details on our coaches’ clinic, and required return to play (concision) information. 

Background check

ECB requires that all coaches and adults who interact with the players on a consistent basis submit to and pass a background check. The background checks are provided through the Cherokee County Recreation and Parks Agency (CRPA) in accordance with ECB’s Youth Association facilities usage agreement. ECB does not receive any information on the details of the background checks, only a pass / fail response. The company contracted by CRPA will supply details to a coach when they do not pass the background check. The details will include the process to appeal the decision. The background checks are valid from July 1 and will expire on June 30. If you have submitted a background check using CRPA for the current year's "Spring" season sport, that background check is NOT valid for this fall season. If you submitted one prior to July 1 of this year, you will need to resubmit for a background check.

CRPA Background Check 

All coaches must have submitted their background check prior to player assessments and provide a copy of the submission confirmation email to ECB. Please forward the submission email to [email protected] . 

Online Training Course

ECB requires all head and first assistant coaches to complete an online training course provided by National Alliance for Youth Sports. This course provides an overview of some coaching concepts as well as insurance for the coaches.

All coaches must have completed their online training prior to their age group’s team draft day and provide a copy of the completion email to ECB. Please forward the completion email to [email protected] .
