The VBCA believes that better coaches create better players and more importantly, better people. The VBCA provides a collaborative network of experienced coaches at college, high school and youth levels to share their knowledge and coaching passion through various formats. Membership is not restricted in any way and Virginia is blessed with talented coaches at all levels of baseball. Ten percent of membership fees are designated for our scholarship program. These funds are used to assist coaches and players in attending conventions, clinics, camps and other educational events related to baseball. The VBCA provides learning opportunities and content through Zoom calls, clinics, camps, VBCA Days at college programs and hosts an annual convention providing exposure to coaches, instructors, and leaders from across the nation in mental, motivational and other baseball related fields.

The Virginia Baseball Coaches Association incorporated as a nonprofit has has standing as a 501(c)3 under the IRS code and donations are deductible as such.
