ABCA Convention Report - What’s to come?


Liam Carroll

Last year I blogged about each of the clinics that I attended (you can work backwards through each post by clicking here). This year I'm going to try to be a bit more creative in sharing the information and will vary the level of detail depending on how relevant I think certain topics were to the sport here (and for that matter to fastpitch and even slowpitch).

Some things to look out for:

  • A main report on our website and in Hot Corner.
  • Recaps of various topics and speakers, including Tony LaRussa, national champion college coaches, S&C, vision training and sport psychology.
  • A recap of the international coaches business meeting.
  • Tips on useful resources identified at the convention.
  • How social media is becoming more important to the success of coaches and programmes.
  • Networking at the convention.

I'm already looking forward to the next convention. No flights are available yet but I'm planning to be in Orlando in January 2015. Coaches - it's seriously something that you should be striving to attend.
