Development Programmes

The top priority of the World Baseball Softball Confederation is to develop Baseball, Softball and Baseball5 at all levels. In order to achieve this goal, it is important to focus on specific areas that are considered essential for the future of our disciplines.

For this reason the WBSC outlines, through the release of the Development Programmes, common guidelines for all its members. The first edition of the programmes (2017-2021) was able to assist National Federations and Continental Associations to reach some of their main goals, while providing to the WBSC itself constructive feedback to upgrade the operational procedures.

As a result, the new 2022-2024 Development Programmes have been bolstered and focus on two key areas:

  • Athletes and Sport Development;
  • Management and Sport Promotion.

A total of five categories of programmes geared towards athletes, coaches, officials, management & administration, and sport promotion.
