Blue Jays National Coaches Clinic Registration
Submitted By pwiesner on Saturday, December 31, 2016
The Binbrook Minor Baseball Association is proud to partner with the Toronto Blue Jays to bring an amazing coaching clinic opportunity to coaches within the BMBA.

Every winter the Toronto Blue Jays offer a Canada wide coaches clinic which is attended by baseball coaches from across the country.  This year the BMBA is pleased to announce a reduced fee for our coaches.  The regular cost for this weekend program held at the Rogers Centre is $175, however if 10 coaches from our association register, the cost will only be $100 for the 3 day event.

The Clinic was attended by members of the association last year and the highlights of the weekend included; batting practice and fielding on the Rogers Centre Field, access and tour of the Toronto Blue Jays club house and facilities, a $75 fleece Nike/Blue Jays pull over, as well as instruction time form some of the best in the game.  Attendees have the opportunity to personally meet and speak with Lloyd Moseby Duane Ward, Garth Iorg and Devon Whote, just to name a few.

Reduced hotel accommodations will be announced at a later date (likely $100 a night at a Rogers Centre area hotel).
