2017 Youth Baseball Coach Training Clinic and Coach Certification

VBC Coach Clinic

Our experienced clinicians provide practical, age-appropriate teaching strategies and effective skill development techniques to coaches at all youth levels. We will deliver information relevant to each coach in group break-out sessions for each skill level. Each T-ball, Single A, Double A, and Triple A coach who attends the clinic will receive a copy of the new VBC Youth Baseball Coach’s Playbook.   In addition, coaches will have access to all of our online training videos on teaching hitting, pitching, catching, and game management.   Following the clinic all coaches will have the opportunity to take the on-line certification test and receive a VBC youth coach certificate. This year we are offering a T-Ball through AA certification as well as AAA/Majors certification.
