Travelling Caravan rolls into Salmon Arm
The BC Baseball Parents, Coaches and Players Caravan, the largest grassroots development program in British Columbia continues its educational program with another great turnout in Salmon Arm with over 135 participants.
We also had the pleasure to have with us a surprise guest and outstanding coach in Canada who lives in Salmon Arm come out to the camp, Former Seattle Mariners area Scout, College coach and current Baseball Canada NCCCP Clinician Pat Phelan. Pat was there to observe and lend his expertise to the camp participants. He was thrilled to see the excitement of the players and how the parents and coaches interacted with the BC Baseball instructors.
The BC Baseball Caravan is the largest grassroots development program in British Columbia and has been going on for 7 years. Throughout this time the program has seen association and caravan numbers increase. “I have been here since the beginning of the caravan and it is great to see how all the associations have worked so hard to make sure we have some outstanding turnouts. To see the excitement of all the participants makes me and our staff feel so good that we are doing this program. The program has been beyond what we thought it should be and It has helped all associations increase the number of participants playing the game at the grassroots level” Mike Kelly Head of the caravan and Board of Director of BC Baseball

“*I just wanted to pass along a huge thank-you for hosting the Coaches Caravan yesterday. My son and husband could not stop talking about it last night and raved about how great it was. What an awesome way to kick off the season!*
