    School Resources

    Looking for some softball resources for your classroom? Take a look at our Tim Hortons Learn to Play program or below for resources where Softball Canada has partnered with organizations to develop softball specific lessons plans for teachers!

    Move, Think, Learn – PHE Canada

    This resource uses a Teaching Games for Understanding approach to work students through tactical gameplay problems, think through options and skills, and learn how to apply this learning to broader gameplay situations. The series explores archery, badminton, canoe-kayak, cycling, ringette, softball, squash, soccer and team handball. Targeted to educators working with children and youth approximately 8-14 years of age (grades 4-9), the goal of the series is to increase student knowledge, confidence, and competence to become further engaged in physical activity and/or sport.

    Active at Schools – Canadian Olympic Committee

    The Canadian Olympic School Program has partnered with Canadian Tire’s ACTIVE AT SCHOOL movement to launch the Canadian Olympic Activity Challenge, with the aim of getting kids across the country active for 60 minutes a day through new classroom resources.

    Students will be introduced to various sports including softball and learn about their history and develop an understanding of the Olympic values of Friendship, Excellence and Respect.
