OKLAHOMA CITY — Under the auspices of the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) and as the National Governing Body (NGB) for softball in the United States, USA Softball is accepting applications for the Men’s National Team Coaches Pool (MNTCP) and Junior Men’s National Team Coaches Pool (JMNTCP) for the 2021-2024 Quadrennium.  Coaches may serve in multiple pools if they can show that they have the time available for the commitment and are selected to serve in multiple pools.
