The ABCA Barnstormers Clinics, presented by The Marines, are one-day coaching clinics for baseball coaches of all levels. The clinic sessions are focused on the fundamentals, with a full day of practical position-specific drills, coaching cues and practice organization tips that can be directly applied to your individual athlete or team.
Following the presentations, attendees will be able to observe the host team's practice session in the afternoon, getting tips and explanations from the coaches as they conduct their training. During the evening, the ABCA staff will try to host an informal meet-up at a hotel or other venue, if possible.
The Barnstormers Clinics are geared towards youth, academy, high school and travel coaches and instructors in the area but are also great for any baseball enthusiast or parent who wants to learn more about the game from some of the most respected coaches in the sport.
ABCA members can attend any Barnstormers Clinic for free. Non-ABCA members can join the association for $75 and then register for the event.
