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 2021 clinics, presented by ATEC, will begin on the morning of Friday, Jan. 8. The first speaker on Friday morning will be the 2020 NCAA Div. I national champion head coach, which is a tradition of the event. The nearly 25 clinics will conclude on the morning of Sunday, Jan. 10.
Presenters are being arranged by ABCA Second Vice President Rick Hitt of South Florida State College with the assistance of ABCA Third Vice President Jim Schlossnagle of TCU. In addition to the main-stage clinics, the ABCA Convention also features the Youth Coaches Session
as well as the Expo Theater
, with 30 more presentations on those stages over the course of four days. That brings the total to more than 50 educational sessions during the convention!
For coaches unable to attend the convention in-person, the ABCA will once again offer a Live Video Stream of the main-stage clinics. This benefit was introduced for the first-time at the 2020 Convention. Following the convention, all clinic presentations (main stage, youth session and expo along with Question & Answer sessions) will be available on demand. All convention attendees who check in on-site or Live Video Stream registrants will receive the complete set of clinic videos for free in their ABCA account! Coaches can access clinic videos dating back to the 2008 ABCA Convention as well as select Barnstormers Regional Coaching Clinics
and more on the ABCA Video Website
The complete 2021 clinic schedule including speakers and topics will be announced in the fall.
The 2021 ABCA Convention, which will be the 77th annual ABCA Convention, will be held in Washington, D.C. at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center from January 7-10, 2021. Be sure to keep an eye out for more information regarding the 2021 Convention beginning this summer on the ABCA website and our social media platforms as well as in the My ABCA app, Inside Pitch Magazine and Press Box e-newsletter.
