Trimper, one of the popular speakers at the annual event, will lead his session entitled, ‘Pitching program observations from the outside in.’

Gambino, who built a competitive program in the Atlantic Coast Conference during his tenure at Boston College, and is now the head man for the Penn State Nittany Lions in the Big 10 Conference, will talk about ‘Indoor practice planning.’

Rival Big 10 coach Mosiello of Ohio State will involve coaches in his session, ‘Playing offense to WIN.’

Rider’s Davis, who has done such a fine job through the years with the Broncs, has an intriguing session he’ll lead called ’35 years and 7 drills.’     

Whitfield and fellow Gamers co-owner Jon Lewis, along with General Manager Mike Kolesar and Roof got the Garden State Coaches Clinic going in its origins.

“Coach Roof, Jon and I sat down and asked ourselves what was the best way to get the most coaches in one place to learn,” said Whitfield. “We really wanted to help high school coaches.

“There are conventions all over the place, but you can’t get to all of them. To be ale to bring the coaches to a great venue like the Hyatt New Brunswick is a perfect fit and we are excited to see many of the state’s high school, college and youth coaches on hand for what should be just a terrific couple of days to be around other baseball people and also learn a great deal at the same time.”

There are different cost options for the 2-day event and coaches can choose to attend both days or choose either the Thursday night session, or just the Friday morning session.
