- The Exchange Program candidate must first have a valid membership for the year he is applying for. Not a member yet? Click here.
The selection procedure will begin afterwards. The EBCA Exchange Coordinator will interview the candidates, ideally, during the EBCA Convention. If you can't attend the Convention but your application is valid and seems to fit our selection criteria for a given host organization, we will organize a Skype or phone interview.
In order to keep our network of hosts organizations intact and to further the good reputation of the EBCA, only coaches that we feel will represent well the EBCA will be selected.
First and foremost, our EBCA Exchange Coaches will be expected to be a good representative of EBCA and of European baseball in general by displaying an open-minded approach to new ideas that might be introduced to him.
Once the selected EBCA coach has been assigned to a hosting organization, EBCA will go ahead and connect both parties with each other. Together, they will determine the details of the trip.
He will then keep EBCA updated with his schedule and will share his experience through our blog with the EBCA community.
He will be asked to fill in a post-exchange report. He may also be asked to collaborate by sharing drills or coaching tips he learned during his stay with the EBCA community.
