Coaches

Register to Coach here!

RYBA is a volunteer organization that relies on parent coaches.  Please consider registering to coach your child’s team when you register them for summer baseball.  You can even co-coach a team with another parent or two.  The more parents we have volunteer to coach ahead of time, the easier it will be to form teams and start the season on time.  There will be a required coaches orientation prior to the start of the season.  Coaching resources with grade specific skills to work on will be provided to you.  All registered Head Coaches will be required to complete a Background Check and Concussion Training through Trusted Coaches.

Link to HOUSE coaches registration is below.  

This link can also be found on the main House page.  Please note that this link for HOUSE coaches registration is different than the TRAVEL coaches registration.  Please complete the House Coach registration if you are interested in coaching your child's HOUSE team.
