Here's a link to a great series of podcasts presented by the ABCA (American Baseball Coaches Association):

  1.  All 2020 coaches are REQUIRED to complete the below course and provide proof by submitting your completion certificate. It will be mandatory for all coaches starting in 2019. Certification is good for life once completed.
  2. ONLINE TRAINING:  Go to and register yourself. Sign up for one of the two options: 1) basic ($15.96 w/discount), or 2) advanced ($19.96 w/discount). Enter code "OYAA" during checkout and get a 20% discount. I have completed the training and found it to be very beneficial. This is necessary training in order to keep improving the product we are offering our children.

The training was created by a company called Human Kinetics in partnership with Babe Ruth League. Human Kinetics have many books out on the market to help you become a better coach. Ripken Baseball has many training videos for sale and for free on YouTube. Our young ball players are only going to get out of their training what we as parents and volunteer coaches are willing to put into it. The completely online training will take approximately 6 hours for the basic course and approximately 8 hours for the advanced course. After completion of the course and passing the end of course exam, you will receive a certificate which is good for your lifetime.
