If a kid's first experience with the game of baseball is a positive one, the chances are much higher that he or she will fall in love with the game and stick with it.

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. 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 vital 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 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 Youth Baseball: The Ripken Way for Babe Ruth Baseball Coaches
- Coaching Youth Softball: The Ripken Way for Babe Ruth Softball Coaches
- Coaching Advanced Baseball: The Ripken Way for Babe Ruth Baseball Coaches
- Coaching Advanced Softball: The Ripken Way for Babe Ruth Softball Coaches
Babe Ruth League, Inc. and Ripken Baseball, Inc. exclusively endorse these online courses, developed by Human Kinetics Coach Education. Coaches who successfully pass the Babe Ruth League Coaching Education and Certification Program will receive a certification that is valid for their entire coaching career with Babe Ruth League, Inc.
