Playball Europe brings the best to make sure that any individual will progress significantly

playball instructors terras

At Playball Europe, our goal is to provide top-quality baseball instruction that not only enhances the skills of our participants but also instills a passion for the game.
The Playball Europe Instructors are qualified coaches and active players who share their knowledge and experience. They are carefully selected based on their expertise, experience, and commitment to the development of young athletes.

Each Instructor has played at the highest level, including in Dutch ML teams or for the Dutch National Team. Some of them were part of the Dutch team that became world champion in 2011, defeating the 'unbeatable' Cuba Team.
Additionally, several instructors bring experience from the MLB or Minor League, or compete in strong American university competitions.

Over the past 30 years, many instructors with experience in their position, have given their best at Playball Europe.
