BC Baseball leads the way with baseball pioneer Andre Lachance as a feature speaker for the 2019 BC Baseball Coaching Conference.

Lachance as been at the helm of the Canadian Women’s National Team program since it’s inception in 2004. His impact on the sport in Canada and at the International level sets the gold standard. Lachance’s leadership has seen the Canadian Women’s program drive in five medals in seven appearances at Women’s Baseball World Cup events. They currently sit No. 2 on the WBSC Women’s Baseball world rankings.

In addition to that, Lachance has insulated the program from a development perspective by creating a path to the national team. Competitive players throughout the country now have three different Baseball Canada National Championship tournaments to strive for including a 16U event that will see all ten provinces competing for the first time ever in August.

Lachance’s work speaks for itself, but we encourage you to come and hear what he has to say
