Softball Community Coaching Programme
The ideal start for the beginner coach is the Softball Community Coaching Program.
The Softball Community Coaching Program aims to develop a network of capable coaches who can deliver a variety of softball experiences which enhance the health and social benefits of participants. It’s not about winning. It’s not about technique. It’s about identifying and supporting coaches through a well-constructed learning framework. In other words, the focus is not on skills and drills but on the teaching and learning method.
The Program is designed to train coaches, players and the community to deliver Game Sense programs. In particular, it aims to help the community coach understand the basics of how to develop activity-based sessions through good planning, efficient organisation and effective coaching techniques. The aim is to maximise involvement and enjoyment of all participants.
Level 1 Softball Coaching Accreditation – The FUNdamentals of Softball
The FUNdamentals of Softball is designed to introduce participants to fundamental softball skills and provide the expertise required to teach these skills to entry-level players (eg school and junior levels) in a fun, safe and well-structured environment.
Level 2 Softball Coaching Accreditation – Training to Train
Training to train provides the coach with the knowledge and skills to plan, organise, conduct and review effective training sessions, and weekly and monthly plans that cater to the individual needs of junior level club players. The program focuses on consolidating the coaching of fundamental softball skills and introducing further basic softball skills, tactics and positional play. Competition is introduced but the focus is on developing the basic skills as opposed to competing.
