A passion for baseball
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, which took effect at the start of the 2008 season,all baseball and softball coaches must complete coaching education and certification.
The Babe Ruth League/Ripken Baseball Coaching Certification Program consists of the following online courses:
- Coaching Advanced Baseball: The Ripken Way for Babe Ruth Baseball Coaches
- Coaching Advanced Softball: The Ripken Way for Babe Ruth Softball Coaches
- Coaching Youth Baseball: The Ripken Way for Babe Ruth Baseball Coaches
