For the first time, Baseball Sask has implemented a very exciting coaching development opportunity for the 2016 season. We recognize the hard work and dedication that our volunteer coaches put in throughout the season and will be rewarding coaches for their time and effort. We have fielded applications from coaches that want to learn more about the game and have a passion for baseball in their community.
The American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Convention is the biggest baseball coaching convention in North America. Baseball Sask will be sending 4 coaches that coached in the 2015 Provincial Playoffs. These coaches are receiving an all expenses paid trip including flights, accommodations, and meal per diems courtesy of Baseball Sask!
There was considerable interest in this opportunity as we received many applications.
We are very pleased to announce that our Selection Panel has chosen to send the following coaches to attend the ABCA in January 2016:
Ryan Hodgins (Regina)
Derek Murdoch (Swift Current)
Mark Marianchuk (Humboldt)
Matt Kosteniuk (Saskatoon)
We would like to thank all coaches that applied and we hope that you once again do so next year.
