  • Learn To Play | sbrsoftball

    LEARN TO PLAY Learn to Play aims to introduce all young children to the joy of softball in a fun, active and positive way. Our Learn to Play program helps little athletes to develop the foundational skills and build player confidence by providing many opportunities to touch the ball. We welcome all players born in 2017 & 2018 to participate in the 2024 softball season. What You Can Expect ​Players will work on skill development for the first 45 minutes followed by a 45 minute coach-pitch mini-game to introduce them to the concept of game play. This modified game introduction will set them up for league games when they enter the U9 division. ​ Players will learn to: - Throw a softball - Catch a softball - Swing a bat - Hit a ball - Run the bases - Be part of a team - Have FUN! REGISTER FOR 2024 SEASON Try Before You Commit Each year, SBR hosts a ‘Come Try Softball’ event prior to the season kick off, where children are immersed in the fundamental skills of the game in a fun and interactive way. Watch for more information about how to register for this event on the website as well as on social media. COME TRY SOFTBALL Equipment Each player will receive a Rockies branded t-shirt and ball cap included in their registration fee. At the end of the season, they will also receive a sport medal. Players will provide their own: ​ - Softball glove - Batting helmet with cage - Running shoes or baseball cleats - Fielder’s mask (optional at this age, but recommended to reduce fear of catching while building confidence in the skill) - Water bottle ​ SBR provides bats for the players to use if they don’t have their own. A complete list of required and optional equipment can be found on the Equipment page. MORE ABOUT EQUIPMENT F.A.Q What is the cost? The cost is $150. When does registration close? Learn to Play (LTP) registration will close on April 1. When does the season start? The 2024 season will kick off on Tuesday, May 7 and finish by Thursday, June 27. How often do they play? LTP will play 2 days per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. What times do they play? Players should arrive and be ready to participate at 6:00PM. They will practice foundational skills for the first 45 minutes and then play a mini-game against another Rockies LTP team for the second half of the evening program. Which diamonds do we play at? The LTP program takes place at the Riverbend Diamonds near 180 Riverbend Dr SE. What happens to cancelled sessions (due to weather)? Cancelled games will not be rescheduled. On average, 1-2 evenings are cancelled due to weather. Where do I buy equipment? You can purchase most softball equipment at any major sporting goods store. What kind of glove should I look for? Make sure to purchase a softball glove (rather than a baseball glove) as they have a larger pocket to accommodate the larger softballs. Reminder: your child will wear their glove on the non-dominant hand! Eg. if your child writes (and throws) with their right hand, they'll wear the softball glove on their left hand. Look for a softer leather that your player can squeeze. Look for a glove that stays firmly on and easy to grip and release. If uncertain ask for assistance at the store. Make sure that the glove can fit an 10" softball. What size softball do they play with? LTP uses an 10” training softball, which has a bit more ‘squish’ compared to a regular softball and helps to build confidence while developing skills. Look for the Rawlings Reduced Injury Factor or 10” (NC10S) softballs. REGISTER FOR 2024 SEASON Need more help? Feel free to email the Learn to Play Coordinator at learntoplay@sbrsoftball.com
