The ABCA Barnstormers Clinics are one-day coaching clinics for baseball coaches of all levels. The clinics are focused on the fundamentals, with a full day of practical position-specific drills, coaching cues and practice organization tips that can be directly applied to your individual athlete or team.
The Barnstormers Clinics are geared towards youth, academy, high school and travel coaches and instructors in the area but are also great for any baseball enthusiast or parent who wants to learn more about the game from some of the most respected coaches in the sport.
ABCA members can attend any Barnstormers Clinic for free. Non-ABCA members can register for $75, which will include a 2020-2021 ABCA membership.
COMMITMENT TO SAFETY

The ABCA encourages all speakers and attendees to practice social distancing, also referred to as "physical distancing." The ABCA adheres to the CDC guidelines and protocols regarding social distancing, which means keeping space between yourself and other people outside your home.

Speakers and attendees are strongly encouraged to wear a cloth face covering that covers both the nose and mouth while attending ABCA events. Attendees and speakers should avoid touching their face and face covering. Speakers will not be wearing a mask while they are presenting.
Speakers and attendees should wash their hands often with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and water is not available, use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol. Speakers and attendees should also avoid touching their face, eyes, nose and mouth.
