Following on from the success of their inaugural appearance at the 2017 SuperCup in Prague last June, the Team UK coach-pitch baseball programme has begun preparations for their return to the tournament in 2018. As well as making coaching appointments for 2018, the programme is looking to recruit UK-based players aged 7-9 early in the New Year.
Appointment of coaches
Team UK are delighted to be retaining the coaching services of Jon Gulliver (Brighton Baseball) and Steve Rollins (Leicester Blue Sox) from our previous tour. Boosting the coaching effort in Prague will be Chris Stevenson (Brighton Baseball) as well as Matt Crawshaw (Leicester Blue Sox), who will also continue as Team UK General Manager.
Although he won’t be travelling to Prague this time around, Robin Banerjee (Brighton Baseball) will be assisting with pre-tournament warm-up preparations in the UK.
The above appointments are provisional and additional coaching appointments may be made in the New Year.
Player recruitment drive
Team UK are looking to confirm their provisional squad of players by the middle of January.
We want to work closely with all British Baseball youth organisations to identify talented young players who they feel would be a good fit for the programme.
The main points to consider are as follows:
We would be delighted to hear from coaches and families to help us identify young players who would be suitable for the programme.
Our aim is to confirm our provisional squad by Sunday 28 January 2018, please can you contact Team UK General Manager Matt Crawshaw before this date for further information.
