In partnership with Softball NB, the GDRC LEARN TO PLAY PROGRAM is a revolutionary way of introducing the sport of Softball to youth. Activities are included which foster the involvement of ALL players, including players with high and low skill levels. Youth 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.
The Learn to Play website is your source for all information regarding the Learn to Play Program. This website contains resources for those already involved in the Learn to Play Program and for those who are seeking more information on the Program and its benefits: http://www.softball.ca/english/programs/learn-to-play.html
Looking for some softball resources for your classroom? Take a look at our Tim Hortons Learn to Play program or below for resources where Softball Canada has partnered with organizations to develop softball specific lessons plans for teachers!
This resource uses a Teaching Games for Understanding approach to work students through tactical gameplay problems, think through options and skills, and learn how to apply this learning to broader gameplay situations. The series explores archery, badminton, canoe-kayak, cycling, ringette, softball, squash, soccer and team handball. Targeted to educators working with children and youth approximately 8-14 years of age (grades 4-9), the goal of the series is to increase student knowledge, confidence, and competence to become further engaged in physical activity and/or sport.
The Canadian Olympic School Program has partnered with Canadian Tire’s ACTIVE AT SCHOOL movement to launch the Canadian Olympic Activity Challenge, with the aim of getting kids across the country active for 60 minutes a day through new classroom resources.
Students will be introduced to various sports including softball and learn about their history and develop an understanding of the Olympic values of Friendship, Excellence and Respect.
