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.
