The World-Renown ABCA Clinics are the highlight of the annual ABCA Convention and run the gamut of baseball topics over the course of three days. The nearly 25 clinics, presented by ATEC, will run from Friday, January 7 through Sunday, January 9 and be held in the McCormick Place Convention Center. For those members that cannot attend the Convention in-person, the main-stage & Youth Coaches Session clinics will be lived streamed!
Chris Lemonis, head coach of the NCAA Div. I national champion Mississippi State Bulldogs, will lead off the clinics on Friday, January 7 at 8:30 a.m. In addition to Lemonis, the presenter lineup also features ABCA/ATEC NJCAA Div. I Coach of the Year Mitch Thompson, who's team won the NJCAA Div. I national title as well as former Major League Baseball managers Bruce Bochy and Bobby Valentine. All of the presenters were arranged by ABCA Second Vice President Jim Schlossnagle of Texas A&M University with the assistance of ABCA Third Vice President Matt Noone of Babson College. Schlossnagle's assistant coach at Texas A&M Nate Yeskie will present on pitching while the Aggies' strength & conditioning coach, Jeremy McMillan, will discuss baseball-specific workouts. Former ABCA Assistant Coach of the Year in the Pacific Association Division, Deskaheh Bomberry, will also speak on pitching.
The speaker schedule with time slots will be released later in the fall. In addition to the General Session clinics, the ABCA Convention also features the Youth Coaches Session
as well as the Expo Theater
