On December 26, the European Coaches Association will host an online event with 4 top coaches from all over the world at 19:00 CET.

After presenting three coaches, it's time for you to know the fourth speaker at the ESCA Holiday Special: Coach Craig Montvidas!

Most of you might already know Coach Montvidas as he is ESCA Director. He is American, but, after college, he moved to the Netherlands, where he spent 8 years as a baseball player.

In 1981, Montvidas debuted as a softball coach for a team in Bussum of the Netherlands and has coached since then clubs in the Netherlands and in Italy.

Craig coached the Dutch, Greek, and British National Teams. In 2015 the Pennsylvania Rebellion of the National Pro Fastpitch League announced Craig Montvidas as their Head Coach.

In addition to many European titles, he has experience in organizing and operating numerous softball clinics around the world in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
