Requirements for Coaches
1. Cal Ripken Online Coaches Course Completed (Certification)
With the requirement that all baseball coaches affiliated with Babe Ruth League, Inc. and Ripken Baseball, Inc. become certified prior to coaching games, the Ripken Baseball Web site makes it easy for you to gain your certification quickly and effectively through the convenience of online learning. There is a nominal fee for the course (~$20) and SCR has prepaid for credits so please contact your division's commissioner for login and credit details..otherwise you can take the course and ask for a reimbursement afterwards.
2. City of Scottsdale Brain Injury Online Course (Head and Assistant Coaches)
Beginning January 1, 2012 a new State law goes into effect.
The City of Scottsdale will not issue a permit nor will you be able to play on any school field until you meet this new requirement. Arizona recently passed SB 1521 which requires the education of coaches, athletes and parents of the danger of concussions and head injuries. In an effort to ensure the well being of children who play sports using school facilities, the City of Scottsdale is requiring that each coach in your organization complete a free, on-line course regarding concussions (see directions below). The course takes approximately 20 minutes and at the end of the course a certificate will be issued. Once your coaches take the course, they do not have to take it again. Any new coaches, however, will have to take the course.
Once completed, please email your certification form (Adobe PDF) to your league commissioner.
On the top left from the COURSES drop-down list, select FREE courses. From the next drop-down list, select Concussion in Sports- What you Need to Know. On the next screen, click PLEASE LOGIN TO ORDER. Once a LOGIN is created, click on the course itself.
