At Danbury Youth Baseball we want the best coaches who will teach and motivate young boys and girls to play the game with intensity and respect.

Our screening process starts with the Cal Ripken Coach Training. As a member of the Babe Ruth / Cal Ripken baseball family, you must be certified through Cal Ripken. To become certified, please visit Follow the link to the coach certification. Once you pass the test you will need to fill out a Danbury Youth Baseball Coach Application.

The next step is to register online as a coach PRIOR to the closing of registration for the season you would like to coach. We will review your application and perform a mandatory national background check. Once approved, we will notify you of your assignment.

We conduct a mandatory coaching clinic in the Spring and Fall. All coaches must attend these seminars.

Throughout the season we will evaluate your performance during practices, games and your interaction with your team. We expect you you conduct yourself with the highest level of integrity and respect for the game.

Additionally, a coaching application must be filled out EACH season you would like to coach, there are no rolling coach application.
