Coaching Baseball and Softball
Here's three good reasons to get involved in coaching baseball and softball in the UK:
To introduce new participants to our sports around the country, develop their skills and ensure they get a rewarding experience that encourages them to stay involved. Baseball and softball need good coaches and in some cases BaseballSoftballUK can pay qualified coaches to help us deliver our regional programmes.
To help ensure that practice and development sessions are led by individuals with high standards of knowledge, teaching and welfare in baseball and softball.
To share your love of the game! Develop your coaching skills to help develop others -- in your club, in schools and in your local community.
