CAL RIPKEN Certification (One Time For Life)

2 CERTIFICATIONS are required for EVERY Manager/Assistant Coach:

1)  CAL RIPKEN (1 time for Life Certification via Human Kinetics): 

Babe Ruth HQs requires each coach to certify once in Cal Ripken Baseball or Softball Certification.   This certifcation is good for life.   Please use this link to get your Certification to be eligible to coach in GMBL.  If you coach in both Baseball and Softball, only one certification is required as a Coach (you do not need to complete both Baseball and Softball).  Please save a copy of your certificate to present to Commissioner of the Division you will be coaching in.

Babe Ruth League Coaching Education Center – Human Kinetics

2)  BACKGROUND CHECK and SAFETY CERTIFICATION:  (Required to be completed every 2 Years per Babe Ruth HQs Rules) 

Background Check via Babe Ruth's Sports Engine background process and required APS Safety training

If your name is not on the Certification List below, you need to complete the process again for the current Coaching Season.
