Coaching Articles & Materials


Coaching is and always will be an extremely important element of the Beth - Wood Baseball League (B - W) and we are very proud of all our Coaches – our Coaches are volunteers (Moms & Dads), unselfishly giving of their free personal time to teach our children this great game of baseball as well as to inspire them to become better individuals by instilling in them the spirit of good sportsmanship and teamwork.  The quality & passion our Coaches have exhibited towards our program is second to none and it is because of them that our League has and continues to experience continued success throughout the years …


We provide our Coaches the opportunity to attend many Clinics we schedule throughout the year to help them become better informed, more confident and learn successful / proven coaching techniques from others.  As part of Cal Ripken / Babe Ruth League requirements, before the start of the Season, ALL of our Coaches listed on our Team Rosters MUST either have in their possession a valid Coaches Certificate from League Headquarters or MUST take a Coaches Certification Course on line to become certified before being placed on a Team Roster.


In addition, we would also like to share with them with the following additional information and educational materials to help them in not only dealing with their Players but also the Parents as well (click on the related links below to view, download and print them off) :
