All equipment is manufactured using child-safe materials. Once you near the end of your loan period and your students have improved their softball skills, you even have enough equipment to have a full game of softball!
What is the Skills Test Booklet?
The Skills Test Challenge was introduced in 2011 and is used to help evaluate participants on their basic movement skills and concepts plus healthy living concepts. Each of the skills evaluated in the Skills Test Challenge fit within the new 2010 Health and Physical Education Curriculum!!
There are twenty-two (22) skill tests included in this Manual, which will test both your students’ basic physical abilities and their softball specific skills. Softball Ontario asks that you test your participants on FIVE (5) Skills Tests and return those results back with the Kit at the end of your loaned period! The Softball Skills Test Challenge can be run at any point in your curriculum seeing as you will now have all the necessary equipment from the Active Softball Kit in your possession.
How Can a Local Softball Association Help?
Softball Ontario has received inquiries as to whether an individual from Softball Ontario is able to come to the school and help with the Active Softball Kit. Who better to do this then our Local Softball Association Volunteers who know the game best! Teachers who are interested can fill out an “X” in the box under number of participants and Softball Ontario will contact your Local Softball Association for a volunteer to come out and help!
