“A Good coach can change a game, a Great coach can change a life”

John Wooden

Welcome to the Coaches Section of Softball Ontario

Softball Ontario realizes that as a Softball Coach you are the front-line ambassadors of our sport. Your interaction with the players of all ages and in many cases with their parents serves to influence these young persons’ love for the game and their future participation in our great sport. This is an awesome responsibility particularly in these times of declining registration, due to the vast variety of activities people can choose from to occupy their leisure time. It is important for you as a Coach to be knowledgeable not only in the skills of the game itself but also in how to present and teach those skills while making the player’s experience worthwhile and fun.The pages of the revamped Softball Ontario web site have been designed with you in mind. It is hoped that you will take the time to browse through our resources. The intent was to help you improve your coaching skills and knowledge, provide you with updates on the programs and services. We hope to inform you of clinics, symposiums, camps and link you with other coaching service providers throughout the province and around the country.
