The BC Baseball Coaches Caravan is making its way to Parksville Qualicum Beach.

The Coaches Caravan is delivered by BC Baseball free of charge in partnership with local associations, and designed to give players, coaches and parents the ultimate launch into the spring baseball season. They will be at Springwood Park on April 20. Oceanside Minor Baseball is encouraging coaches, players, and parents to participate.

The caravan is targeted at players from Blastball to 13U (Peewee). Players, parents and coaches will be on the field working together with the caravan coaches, who will provide them with simple drills and games they can use at practice and at home with the players.
