Competition Introduction (2 Weekends)
Softball Canada’s Competition Introduction Clinic is comprised of two weekends of training. Weekend #1 sets the stage by teaching you the “what” of coaching softball, while weekend #2 teaches you the “how”.
How to Coach: April 6 & 7, 2019
Working to improve long-term athlete performance, a coach that takes this two-day workshop will learn to prepare their athletes (youth ages 10 + or adults) for provincial, national, or international competitions. In this 14-to 16-hour course, the role of the coach will be covered, and participants will deepen their knowledge of planning and positions while learning technical softball skills and drills.
What to Coach: April 27 & 28, 2019
Generally taken as a complement to the “How to Coach” workshop, this two-day technical course oversees offensive softball strategies, the detection and analysis of performance, and ethics and helps coaches build their coaching portfolio.
