Introducing...
Softball Saskatchewan is implementing a coach/athlete mentor program focused on boys and girls aged six to twelve. This program follows the
FUNdamental and Learning to Train stage of the Softball Canada Long Term
Player Development (LTPD) model. This program will be provided free of
charge and available to any minor softball Association in the province. Softball Saskatchewan will provide a trained mentor to come and work on diamond with local teams. We do however ask that Associations purchase the
Softball Canada U12 Coaches Guide and/or Learn to Play Manual as these
will serve as the basis for setting up practices. The program will run for the
months of April, May and June in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
For more information contact Jacqueline at (306) 780-9235 or
[email protected]
SAFE STAR
Softball Saskatchewan has launched our new program SAFE STAR.
The program is a quality assurance program that will award Softball Associations
with a STAR rating from one to three based on a series of standards in four
categories:
 Organizational Development
 Volunteer Development
 Long Term Player Development
 Provincial Participation
Softball Associations who receive a SAFE STAR rating will be able to promote
themselves as such and will receive free promotional materials to assist them in
marketing their programs to the public.
