Thank you for volunteering to coach. All coaches and board members are required by Babe Ruth to undergo a background check. If you are new to coaching, or if you haven't completed this check within the last 3 years, please click the picture below to find the application and fill it out as soon as possible. The cost to complete the background check is $10. The league does not receive any information from your background check other then pass or fail and that information will be kept strictly confidential.
All coaches must be certified by Babe Ruth. If you have already taken the course, you do not have to take it again. The certification program is available online at www.baberuthcoaching.org.
Due to league guidelines, anyone that has not completed the course will not be allowed on the field.
Babe Ruth League, Inc. programs, nationwide, are required to annually conduct a background check on all managers, coaches, board of directors' members, as well as any other persons and volunteers, who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams. The purpose of these background checks is, first and foremost, to protect the players.
