Pre-Convention Seminars | 9 AM-Noon
We are now offering THREE optional three-hour seminars the first day of the convention. Matt Meuchel's crowd-pleasing roundtable session, "How Statistics & Metrics Can Help You Win More Games" has been expanded into a full-length pre-convention seminar this year, where it joins the always-popular "Assistant Coach University" and a new "Lessions in Leadership" presentation that features some of the most successful coach in the sport.
Four Days of Clinic Sessions Sponsored by Sports Attack
We've added four more speaking sessions to our lineup in 2017! Attendees will gain valuable insight, drills and tips from some of the best speakers and sharpest minds in our game today. Veteran coaches and national experts share their secrets of softball.
Mentoring Session & Fireside Chats
Take part in one of our most helpful convention events — our annual mentoring workshop followed by the well-received fireside chat sessions. Pre-selected mentors discuss various coaching topics in small groups with all mentees in attendance. Newer coaches can get better in the areas they need to, while veterans share their knowledge with fellow coaches. Everyone makes connections and builds relationships that last throughout their coaching careers.
