The American Baseball Coaches Association plans to host 20 Barnstormers Clinics from the East Coast to the West Coast in 2018. The Barnstormers Clinics are presented by Blast Motion and will run August through November, leading up to the 2019 ABCA Convention in Dallas.
These one-day events are for baseball coaches and focus on fundamentals, practical position-specific drills, coaching cues, and practice organization tips. The events are hosted by ABCA member coaches and are open to the public. They will typically run 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Each of the one-day coaching clinics will feature ABCA member speakers from that region. The speakers will cover a variety of topics, including hitting, pitching, arm care, catching, practice efficiency and planning, base running and defensive play. Blast Motion will also give a presentation during each event about hitting and the advantages of using motion detection and analytics to improve a hitter's performance.
This year, the events will be held on a nation-wide basis with plans for Barnstormers Clinics in the Northeast, Southeast, West Coast, Texas and other areas. When dates and sites are confirmed, they will be announced here.
The registration fee is just $25 for current ABCA members or $40 for non-members.
