Course Options for Certification

Which course is right for you?

There are two course options for Babe Ruth League coaches to earn certification. For each sport there is an introductory course and an advanced course. Both meet the certification requirement. Coaches are free to take either course.

The introductory course is designed for new and inexperienced coaches; those who have never coached before or who are not familiar with the sport.

The advanced course is designed for experienced coaches; those who have coached before and are new to Babe Ruth League and have a strong familiarity with the sport.

The advanced courses are also aimed at Babe Ruth League coaches who have completed the introductory Coaching Youth Baseball or Coaching Youth Softball course to achieve certification and are now looking to further their knowledge as coaches.

To help you in making the decision as to which course is right for you, the table below provides a side-by-side comparison of the content of each course.
