MASH Baseball joins the mission of Trusted Coaches- A Comprehensive Risk Management Platform

Spring Lake Park, MN – Making Athletes Sustainable Here (MASH) adopts the Trusted Coaches program. The well respected MASH joins over 20,000 users that are being trained by the Trusted Coaches program.

MASH was established in 2012 with the mission of developing athletes on and off the field in a positive atmosphere. MASH Baseball is established as one of the most successful programs in the Midwest, running spring, summer and fall teams alongside community associations. MASH also runs comprehensive development programs for athletes looking to work on individual skills. In addition to the baseball club, MASH Performance has created a name for itself as one of the top performance centers, training youth, high school, collegiate, professional and adult clients through individualized programming in their state of the art, 8,000 square foot facility.

MASH takes great pride in helping every individual in our program achieve their athletic goals, strengthen character through hard work and build confidence through continued success and development.

When asked why they joined Trusted Coaches, Mash Owner Tom Buske said “Culture is huge for us at MASH. We are always looking for ways to enhance the services we provide. We decided to work alongside Trusted Coaches because they provide our coaching staff made up of 40+ individuals the training, education and screening we need and give our families peace of mind that our entire coaching staff is prepared to work alongside their kids.”

Trusted Coaches was created by Minnesota Youth Athletic Services (MYAS) as a response to youth athletic associations need to train coaches and protect young athletes. The Trusted Coaches program includes first-aid training, concussion instruction, positive coach training through the Positive Coaching Alliance and a national criminal background check. Other programs are available via a la carte and can also be customized to meet the needs of an organization.

“On behalf of the entire Trusted Coaches team, I am excited to welcome the MASH as the newest organization to adopt Trusted Coaches. ” All coaches, parents, players and fans will gain further confidence in MASH Baseball because of the additional security and confidence they receive from Trusted Coaches.” Dawson Blanck, Executive Director of Trusted Coaches

A key component to the Trusted Coaches program is managed with a state-of-the-art website that includes a national registry for tracking. The website package allows parents to track their coaches and determine if they are certified Trusted Coaches.  The website is also a great tool for associations to be able to track the progress of their coaches as they go through the coach education program, delivered entirely online.
