Busy BSF AGM Day set for 23 February

Thu 14 Feb 2019

The 2019 British Softball Federation AGM will be held on Saturday 23 February in Bushey, Hertfordshire – but a lot more than the formal AGM session will be taking place during the day.

The BSF’s annual League Heads Forum, postponed from its more usual date in November, will get the day started at 11.00 pm.  After lunch, the BSF will present a webinar on concussion issues in softball, and this will be followed by the AGM itself, including presentation of the BSF’s annual awards, and then a session presented by BaseballSoftballUK on a new coaching initiative for B-grade slowpitch players.

While affiliated leagues and teams hoping to play in co-ed slowpitch National Championships are required to send a representative to the AGM, any member of the softball community is welcome to attend.
