Coaching Youth Baseball Training Course

The Riverside-Bradford Baseball League highly recommends that coaches take the Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken online training course, Coaching Youth Baseball. Some of our coaches have played and/or coached baseball in the past. For others, this may be a new experience. Being a youth baseball coach involves teaching baseball fundamentals as well as managing effectively, and communicating with both children and their parents.

Information about Coaching Youth Baseball can be found here:
http://www.baberuthcoaching.org/promotions/oct09.cfm/

To enroll in the course, you must create an account here:

The cost of the course is $19.95, and the course takes 2-3 hours to complete. You can take the course at your convenience and at your own pace, or you can do it all at once.
