The BaseballSoftballUK Coach Summit is a unique opportunity for the baseball, fastpitch and slowpitch softball coaching community to attend talks, workshops and networking events featuring some of the best speakers and facilitators in the game.
This is the second year for the Coach Summit, which will take place on Saturday 28 January at Birmingham City University, and it has quickly become THE annual event in the British baseball and softball coach development calendar.
The theme for the 2017 Summit is ‘An athlete-centred approach’, and there will be keynote speeches throughout the day along with additional workshops and discussions.
On Sunday 29 January, guest coaches will run workshops for the High Performance Academy and Coach Tutor workforce, and coaches who attend the first day of the Summit are invited to come back on Sunday in an observational capacity.
International Sports Group, the European Softball Federation, the British Baseball Federation and the British Softball Federation have agreed to sponsor and support the 2017 BSUK Coach Summit.
BSUK National Development Manager Will Lintern said, “It is fantastic to have such a wonderful group of partners to help us build on the success of last year’s Coach Summit and make this year’s event even better. Thanks to the support of ISG and the ESF, BBF and BSF, we have a truly exceptional line-up of speakers, and one that will both educate and inspire our coaches ahead of the 2017 season.”
International Sports Group (ISG), established in 1985 by Bill Arce, is a not-for-profit organisation that specialises in working with national federations to deliver coaching clinics and seminars.
ISG has been responsible for coordinating a number of clinics in Europe, including the European Baseball Coaches Association Convention. This is not the first time that ISG has worked in the UK, but it is their first time partnering with the BSUK Coach Summit, and thanks to their support the 2017 line-up includes two truly exceptional baseball speakers.
