COACHING RESOURCES

In conjunction with the Athlete Development Matrix and Gold Medal Profile Standards, Softball Canada has provided coaches with the following blank template in order to help track the development of athletes looking to advance along the Podium Pathway. They have provided space to input an athlete’s results in order to record their achievements.
As a reminder, these standards can and should act as goals to work towards as an athlete’s development progresses. It is incredibly important to note that an athlete will not get to the highest level of play by only focusing on these skills.
Each of these standards are influenced by several variables, and that should be kept in mind when interpreting this table and recording an athlete’s results.
In softball, it is vital that athletes play multiple positions and realize that the skills needed to achieve a podium performance need be fostered during an athlete’s early development.

Here is a list of Softball Canada Coaching Standard for a variety of sanctioned tournaments.
*Please Note* Starting in 2020 the Foundations of Coaching Softball (FOCS) – Part 1 E-Learning Module will be the minimum training that coaches require at all levels of play.
