CANpitch was created to introduce and develop the fundamental skills of windmill pitching to Canada’s children and youth. Trained CANpitch instructors in each province teach a nationally standardized curriculum founded in Long Term Player Development (LTPD) principles that reflects an athlete-centered approach to learning.

 

The benefits of a nationally standardized pitching program like CANpitch are:

 

  • All athletes across Canada will have the opportunity to learn how to pitch from pitching experts.
  • Improved fundamental pitching skills will improve competitiveness at the local, provincial and national levels.
  • CANpitch Instructors are part of a national network of pitching coaches that participate in professional development sessions, which fosters a sense of community and the sharing of best practices.

 

CANpitch programs in your area may run year-round with group lessons often taking place once a week in 6 week blocks. It is our goal that all softball associations in Canada have CANpitch Instructors offering programs to anyone wanting to learn to pitch. Contact your Provincial/Territorial Office or local softball association about how to host, become a CANpitch Instructor or enroll a pitcher in a CANpitch Program near you.

 

FUN FACT: Women’s Softball was first introduced as an Olympic sport in 1996 at the Summer Games in Atlanta. It remained an Olympic sport until the 2008 Summer games, but has been removed for the 2012 and 2016 games. Source: http://www.sportsknowhow.com/sof
