BC Baseball Caravan Makes Final Stop for 2017 in Osoyoos
BC Baseball the largest provider of grassroots baseball in British Columbia just ended its 7th year of its Baseball Educational Caravan for players, parents, and coaches with its 17th location in 15 days with an outstanding camp in Osoyoos Minor Baseball. There were over 125 very enthusiastic participants at the camp.
One of the top instructors in the caravan and Board member for BC baseball Grant Rimer said, “ The adults and kids who attended the camp in Osoyoos Minor Baseball were so excited that we returned to host the caravan in their community. They have taken what they learned at the caravan in the past and applied it to their daily coaching and development of their players. This is a great community that continues to work in the right ways to increase the participation of their grassroots program".
All the associations that have hosted the caravan told us how much it has helped in the development of the grassroots level of the game. By educating the Players, Parents, and Coaches they have seen more development in the player’s skills, confidence and the fun they are having playing the game. Because of the BC Baseball Caravan and the success of the Toronto Blue Jays they have all seen an increase in participation
Host instructor for the BC Baseball Caravan, Former USA Baseball National Team Coach Peter Caliendo is in his 5th year working with the BC Baseball instructors and says, “I continue to be amazed at the excitement, participation, and implementation of all the skills being taught at the caravan. By far this is one of the best developmental programs at the grass roots level that I have seen anywhere in the world. This program should be copied by countries and baseball organizations all over the world. BC Baseball truly understands that parents, players and coaches development is vital to the growth of the game at the grassroots level”
