The Babe Ruth League/Ripken Baseball Coaching Education and Certification Program
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 and softball 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 rostered baseball and softball coaches and managers must complete coaching education before the beginning of the season.
The Babe Ruth League/Ripken Baseball Coaching Certification Program consists of the Level 1 coaching certification online courses:
- Coaching Youth Baseball: The Ripken Way for Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Baseball Coaches and
- Coaching Youth Softball: The Ripken Way for Babe Ruth Softball Coaches
The courses are available now through the Babe Ruth League Coaching Education Center: Powered by Ripken Baseball Web site.
Babe Ruth League, Inc. and Ripken Baseball, Inc. exclusively endorse these online courses, which were developed by the American Sport Education Program (ASEP). The courses are available now, so you have ample time to complete certification requirements prior to the beginning of the season.
Coaches who complete the Level 1 course with a score of 80% or better will receive the Babe Ruth League/Ripken Baseball Coaching Certification Program Level 1 certification for baseball or softball and will be able to print a certificate of completion and wallet card from the Web site. The certification is valid for three years.
