A course to develop coaches and game officials is the first step on the path to a medal in the 'Juegos Nacionales', the National Olympics

The success of the inaugural WBSC Baseball5 World Cup in Mexico continues to reverberate around the country with Baseball5 course staged by the Softball Association of the State of Sinaloa (ASES) proving very popular.

A total of 75 participants took part in the clinic, which was open to coaches and whoever was interested in developing the five-on-five version of baseball/softball.

ASES president Alfredo Lerma Martinez managed Mexico to fifth place at the WBSC Baseball5 World Cup, that Mexico hosted in the capital city in November.

Lerma Martinez told the daily El Sol de Sinaloa that the course was meant for future coaches and game officials and included an introduction to the history of Baseball5, the rules and the game plan.

CONADE, Mexico's National Commission for Physical Culture and Sport, included Baseball5 in the programme of the Juegos Nationales, the National Olympics where Lerma Martinez said he has the goal to lead Sinaloa to a medal.
