Barnstormers Regional Coaches Clinics Videos - Fall 2020

The American Baseball Coaches Association hosted the Barnstormers Regional Coaches Clinics once again in Fall 2020! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the events were closed to the public and presentations were videoed for all current ABCA members to view! The Barnstormers Clinics, which are one-day events for baseball coaches that feature presentations from ABCA member coaches within that region, are presented by Blast Motion.
 
These clinics are free for ABCA members to attend. Coaches who are not ABCA members that wish to attend may become a member of the association to get access! In a typical year, the events are hosted by ABCA member coaches and run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Clinic presentations vary from video instruction to on-field demonstrations to live drill or practice commentary, and focus on fundamentals, practical position-specific drills, coaching cues, and practice organization tips. Speakers at each event will cover a variety of topics, including hitting, pitching, arm care, catching, practice efficiency and planning, base running and defensive play.
