THE GEORGIA DUGOUT ANNUAL
NEW DATES AND LOCATIONS
The Georgia Dugout Club is moving its annual Coaches Clinic to a new location as well as some new dates. The Clinic will be held Dec. 10-12, 2020 at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel & Convention Center.
The 14-floor hotel features 510 rooms and is located at 2450 Galleria Parkway across the street from Truist Park and the Battery.
GADC Executive Director Harvey Cochran said the "hotel is absolutely beautiful and the space for meetings and vendors is huge." Cochran added the change in location will hopefully help the GADC be able to do more with the Braves, and the new venue has plenty of rooms.
The Coaches Clinic has been held for the past four years at the Marietta Hilton Hotel during the second weekend in January.
The Clinic will return to the Marietta Hilton Hotel on Dec. 9-11, 2021 prior to the start of the 2022 season due to a large doctor's convention having already booked the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel.
But the Clinic returns to the Renaissance on Dec. 8-10, 2022 as well as Dec. 7-9, 2023.
Cochran said he realizes the new dates could conflict with the Georgia High School Association State football championships but since the championships are played in Atlanta, coaches could schedule around both events if it impacts them.
"We are moving away from the proliferation of other clinics that are right on top of ours and freeing up the time before baseball coaches can start practice or work on your field," Cochran said in a statement.
You must make your reservations one month before the clinic or the rate will go up significantly since the Renaissance is in the middle of a huge shopping and restaurant district. Note the new dates are before Christmas and a week before most schools have final exams.
