The TIMBITS SOFTBALL PROGRAM is a revolutionary way of introducing the sport of Softball to children. Activities are included which foster the involvement of ALL players, including players with high and low skill levels. The child will experience excitement, enjoyment and success. Activities and lead-up games are patterned after informal playground games that promise an hour of FUN and LOTS OF ACTION. Participants will go home at the end of the day happy and tired, while improving their fitness level.
The Timbits Softball program is a community based event and is dependent on the participation of players, coaches and parents. The program is one that can only be as successful as both the coaching staff and the volunteers and requires both parties, especially the coaches, to be able to successfully teach the fundamental softball skills listed on Softball Canada’s basic skills checklist. By doing so, it ensures that children are actively participating in the game and are eager to return to softball year after year. This summer the Softball New Brunswick summer students traveled to various locations around the province in the ‘Community Caravan’- a program designed to promote the Timbits Softball program in different locations around New Brunswick. When travelling, Ryan, Meghan, and Alex introduced many checklist items listed on the Softball Canada check list.
This ensured that all participants gained the age appropriate knowledge in order to continue to develop as overall athletes before specializing in softball. The students focused on providing participants a different experience than they would normally receive during their weekly practices throughout the summer. They were able to do this by incorporating new games and activities into the already established programs. Many times, the students would encourage parents and spectators to come out on the field with the players and actively participate to ensure that they as well were aware of the proper terms and form used for basic throwing and catching techniques. By the end of the summer, the students had been contacted by several communities, schools and summer camps throughout the province, requesting them to come participate in their practices.
