What is the Canpitch Program?
Canpitch was created to introduce and develop the fundamental skills of windmill pitching to Canada’s children and youth. 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 experts.
- Improved skills will improve competitiveness at the local, provincial and national levels.
- Canpitch Instructors are part of a national network of pitching coaches that are trained through Softball Canada's NCCP Pitching - Beginner context (more on that here). They participate in professional development sessions, which fosters a sense of community and the sharing of best practices.
