Coaches Certification Information

There is no one single action that can have more of a positive impact on our players than improving the quality and knowledge of our managers and coaches. It is a fact that managers and coaches are the ones who spend the most time interacting with our participants and the ones who can make a child’s experience in youth sports fun and memorable. Therefore, it is very important for youth coaches to be properly trained to focus more on the child’s baseball experience and less on winning games. With this in mind, the Babe Ruth League/Ripken Baseball Coaching Certification Program was developed. Under the program, all baseball coaches must complete coaching education in order to qualify as youth coaches in any National Babe Ruth League.

At the beginning of the 2008 season, Babe Ruth League and Ripken Baseball established a leadership role in youth baseball and softball by requiring all of our rostered coaches and managers to gain certification, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. More than 80,000 coaches have been through the program, helping to ensure our kids receive the best sport experience possible. Building on this momentum, Babe Ruth League and Ripken Baseball, in conjunction with coaching education partner American Sport Education Program (ASEP), introduce the newest baseball coaches course for the 2010 season, Coaching Advanced Baseball: The Ripken Way for Babe Ruth Baseball Coaches

Priced at only $24.95, this course offers compelling attributes to meet the needs of our youth coaches, including:

  • More advanced training on the technical and tactical skills of baseball
  • A Babe Ruth League certification option particularly appealing to experienced coaches.
  • An ideal continuing education course for coaches who’ve taken the Coaching Youth Baseball or Softball course and are looking to enhance their coaching skills.
