It is imperative that our coaches become certified. There are several organizations that you can choose from to complete a baseball coaching certification course. The links below will take you to information about the certification offered by Babe Ruth/Cal Ripkin and NAYS.
We encourage all of our coaches to upload a copy of your certification to your profile. This will stay on record with our league and you should not need to upload or show proof of certification each season.
