We've put together some resources for Timbits players to be able to do at home! Check out the links below!
The items listed in this document are suggestions of recommended safeguards for restarting Softball activity in Canada. Provincial/Territorial (P/T) Associations, Leagues, Tournament Hosts, Staff, Players, Coaches, Parents, and Spectators should continue to follow Federal, Provincial/Territorial, and Local Governmental guidelines. Feel free to make your guidelines more stringent if you deem necessary.
One of the most important parts of the Timbits Softball Program is having fun while being active! Learning Fundamental Movement Skills is the most important part of the Fundamentals stage of development. Realizing we are having to adapt the way in which we are being active right now, Softball Canada has put together a list of organizations with resources on keeping kids active while at home- all while learning the fundamental movement skills needed to participate in softball!

Looking for some softball resources for your classroom? Take a look at our Timbits Softball program or below for resources where Softball Canada has partnered with organizations to develop softball specific lesson plans for teachers!
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.
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.
