The American Baseball Coaches Association is excited to announce that Driveline Baseball has renewed its agreement as an Official Partner of the ABCA. Driveline, who will continue as an ABCA Double Partner, will give two featured presentations at the 2020 ABCA Convention Expo Theater.
"As the ABCA continues to grow and expand its reach in the game of baseball, it becomes increasingly important for our organization to align itself with companies like Driveline who strive to improve player performance through coaching education," said ABCA Executive Director Craig Keilitz. "With the support of Driveline, we are thrilled to again offer the ABCA Convention Scholarship Program and provide our members with an opportunity to continue their development by learning from many of the game's best coaches."
As part of their agreement, Driveline will serve as the presenting sponsor of the ABCA Convention Scholarship Program. This program will provide a scholarship stipend to current ABCA members that will cover convention registration fees and lodging at the 2020 ABCA Convention in Nashville. More details about the Scholarship Program will be released this fall.
“Like Driveline, the ABCA is committed to getting better every year and delivering more value to its coaches," said Mike Rathwell, CEO of Driveline Baseball. "Helping coaches develop better baseball players is our only mission-and the ABCA is a natural partner. We’re looking forward to expanding our scholarship program and offering a discount to our continuing education product, DrivelinePLUS-which is Costco+Netflix for growth-minded baseball coaches.”
Driveline will offer current ABCA members access to a $25 discount to DrivelinePLUS, a one-stop shop to learn how to apply advanced player development concepts in your practice + 10% off (or more) on Driveline gear.
The 2018 and 2019 NCAA Div. I national champions used Driveline's products and protocols to help develop their players, along with playoff-caliber teams at every level of amateur baseball.
Driveline provides usable, scalable solutions for coaches of all levels and budgets. They continuously study the game and openly publish their data in peer-reviewed journals and on their blog to deliver even better results for players. Driveline has developed several software tools to make coaches lives easier (TRAQ - collecting data; EDGE - visualizing spin information).
