Softball Canada offers the following NCCP workshops:

Learn to Coach: For parents of participants or volunteer coaches, this 6-hour workshop focuses on softball essentials, placing emphasis on safety, fun, ethics, teamwork, and values beyond the game. It will enable participants to teach basic skills to beginners of all ages through a variety of activities. More…

Ongoing Participation: This 12-to15-hour weekend workshop will show coaches how to help participants continue their love of the sport and learn more sport specific skills. Participants will leave the course with a coaching toolbox filled with drills, skills, and positions. More...

How to Coach: 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. More…

What to Coach: 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. More…

The Softball 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”.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE?

This clinic is for coaches preparing players in the Learn to Train and Train to Train stages of softball’s Long-term Player Development (LTPD) model to improve performance, often in preparation for local, provincial, regional, and/or national competitions. Coaches usually have previous coaching experience or are former softball players.
