WBSC academy

Welcome to the WBSC Academy

The WBSC Academy aims to help facilitate athletes, coaches, officials and National Federations to conduct efficient self-learning of the various topics related to Baseball, Softball and Baseball5.

The WBSC Academy courses will be instructed by specialists in each particular subject and will serve as a platform for the transfer of knowledge with expert training and sharing of technical advice. It is hoped the WBSC Academy will help to provide the development tools necessary to further expand the sports’ popularity and practice in both traditional as well as new and emerging baseball/softball countries and territories.

Courses, available in English and Spanish, are initially open to members of WBSC National Federations before opening to the wider public at a later date still to be announced.

WBSC President Riccardo Fraccari said: “This new online learning platform adds another powerful tool to further develop our sport globally, particularly in new and emerging baseball/softball territories.

“Whilst the pandemic has accelerated our need to create online e-learning tools for our Member Federations, the WBSC Academy is also part of our goal to reduce our carbon footprint across all of our activities. It is also important that we continue adapting to the new norm and that we find new ways to support our community at a time when COVID-19 continues to restrict peoples’ movements.”
