Presented by Pocket Radar

Virtual Clinics Launching TuesdayThe American Baseball Coaches Association will continue to run its #ABCAatHOME Virtual Coaching Clinics each Tuesday in the month of May with the support of presenting partner Pocket Radar . The virtual coaching clinics will be held Tuesdays at 8 p.m. Eastern and will feature a panel of ABCA member coaches covering a specific topic each week. The live clinics are open to anyone and no registration is necessary! Participants can log on to the clinic by visiting ABCA.org/ABCAatHOME.

"We are all experiencing an unprecedented time together right now," said ABCA Executive Director Craig Keilitz when the virtual clinics were announced in April. "I have been impressed by our coaches and their commitment to continual learning during this time away from their players and fields. We hope that these clinics will serve as just another resource for coaches to come together as a community and learn from one another."

The #ABCAatHome Virtual Coaching Clinics are free and open to anyone by visiting ABCA.org/ABCAatHOME. At the conclusion of the clinic, it will be archived in the ABCA Coaching Resource Library for all ABCA members. If you are late on Tuesday, you will also be able to rewind to watch what you've missed!
