EBCA Coach Exchange Program


Discover the exciting EBCA Exchange Program, a fantastic opportunity for EBCA members to connect with a global coaching network. Exchange Coaches get to experience advanced coaching techniques abroad, taking their skills to the next level beyond Europe.

This program perfectly complements the EBCA Convention and other clinics by providing hands-on learning opportunities. Each exchange is unique, tailored to different hosts and programs, offering diverse coaching experiences.

Selected coaches handle their airfare costs, while hosts typically cover lodging, transportation, and most meals. The program usually runs during the offseason, so it won't interfere with in-season duties.

Plus, EBCA partners with MLB's Coaching Development Program, giving a lucky EBCA coach the chance to visit an MLB club during the Fall Instructional League every year. Together, these initiatives boost coaching expertise among EBCA members.
