We know this league doesn’t happen without our volunteers.

However, to ensure the safety of our players, any volunteer who plans on being on the field and/or in the dugout must complete the process below. These positions include:

  • Manager
  • Coach
  • Team parent (This position only requires background check, concussion video and online application.)

To obtain your badging credentials, please follow the directions below.

  1. Background check. As Jan. 28, 2018, background checks will be completed via the Fishhawk Youth Baseball Board. If you are currently applying for a new badge, please email Mark Slaton at to have a background check completed.
  2. Obtain your Coaching Certification. You can obtain a coaching certification by attending one of the free Hillsborough County classes OR take the online course at your own expense (print your certificate upon completion).
  3. Watch the Concussion and Head Trauma Video and print your certificate with name and date upon completion of the course.
  4. Complete the FYSA online badge form. If you are a manager, please remember to include your CPR certificate and date. If you need CPR Certification, please indicate on the form you are an assistant coach. Fishhawk Youth Baseball will be hosting a CPR training event and will inform Division Reps when the dates are confirmed.

Note: At this time, the Hillsborough County Class and the NAYS online course are the only county-approved classes we can accept.

For questions, please contact Badge Coordinator Mark Slaton at


If you are renewing your badge, please click here to begin the process. You will need to reupload the paperwork you have already completed (such as certificates and concession completion) through this process.

Important note: As we prep for the upcoming season, we will announce badge pickup nights for those obtaining a new badge and/or renewing existing credentials.
