BaseballSoftballUK Coach Summit 2016 Tickets

The Coach Summit is the first and only event of its kind in the UK and will cater to the needs and interests of baseball, fastpitch and slowpitch coaches in one environment.

The workshops will cover skills based clinics, 'how-to' sessions and development opportunities for coaches. The summit will be structured so that the coaches can choose their own learning journey, with a mixture of clinics generic to all of our sports as well as those that are specific to baseball, fastpitch and slowpitch.

Coach Awards

An awards ceremony accompanied by canapes and light refreshments will proceed the Summit and will be a chance for BaseballSoftballUK,the British Baseball Federation and British Softball Federation to recognise the efforts put forward by so many of our dedicated coaches.

Further details on the awards will be announced shortly.
