2018 Coaches Info
Team structure, background checks, certification, and terminologyUpdatedTuesday February 20, 2018 byBill Huffman.
The following terms as presented by Babe Ruth League Inc and Cal Ripken Baseball are used: "Manager" is for a head coach of a team, and "Coach" is for any coaching assistant to the Manager. The league website also follows this terminology when registering. KCRBL is also using "Assistant Coach," as defined below for baseball.
All Managers and Coaches (baseball and softball) must have background checks. All Managers and Coaches must, therefore, be registered on the KCRBL website in the specific roles in order for the league to run the background checks.
All Managers must be certified, completing the Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth certification course/test, and inform the league office. Certification is required of all district and state tournament managers and coaches.
KCRBL is enforcing the following manager-coaching rules for baseball in 2018 (and beyond) to mitigate player recruitment and “talent stacking” in order to have parity among teams—the league is for the benefit and fair playing field of the kids.
