Baseball BC, on behalf of its province wide members, coaches and athletes, is very pleased to be able to announce the inauguration of the Baseball BC Female Baseball Advisory Council.
The Baseball BC Female Baseball Advisory Council will be made up of the following former and current athletes; Becky Hartley, Amanda Asay, Niki Boyd, Jennifer Gilroy and Claire Eccles (See bios on each of the advisory council members below).
This council will provide guidance and insight into all programming and development offerings through the Baseball BC Female Baseball Committee and the Female Baseball Program leadership stewards.
“This group of current and former athletes have become the motivation and inspiration for whole new generations of female players across the province of BC and we are excited to be able to use their life experiences and playing history to help guide us as we continued to make Girls Baseball a priority for the association” says Baseball BC Executive Director David Laing.
“The Baseball BC Female Program has made a concerted effort over the last number of years to reconnect with program alumni and involve as many of those athletes as possible to serve as mentors and role models for our current athlete pool. The addition of our advisory council is both a logical next step and exciting initiative for the whole program”, offers Baseball BC Female Baseball program director Scott MacKenzie.
