Softball is one of the largest participation sports in Canada. Over 300,000 players enjoy the sport in registered Fast Pitch, Slo-Pitch and Orthodox leagues across the country. Many thousands more learn the game in schools across the country.
Consider that no women took part in the first modern games in 1896. Today the balance remains weighted in favour of men, but it is tilting. At the XXVIth Games in Atlanta, for example, 97 of the 271 events were open to women.
Quality coaching leads to improved performance and a better overall sport experience for young Canadians.
