What’s required?

The MYB program cannot run without its numerous coaches and managers. Are these men and women experienced baseball players or coaches? Sometimes, but not always. More importantly they are adults who want to spend time with our town youth, teaching them good sportsmanship, hard work, and the lessons learned from both winning and losing. Teaching baseball and having fun are the easy tasks!

Cal Ripken Coaching Course

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, which took effect at the start of the 2008 season, all baseball and softball coaches must complete coaching education and certification.

The MYB Strongly recommends all managers and coaches to take this course as it will give you and your team an edge in running both a successful practice, but help you connect with your players to help them understand the game of baseball.
