Long-Term Player Development : A Guide For Softball Parents

This Parent Guide is a brief overview of what is covered in detail within the Long-Term Player Development Guide for Softball in Canada document.

Softball Canada realizes the vital role that parents play in many aspects of a child’s development and realizes the huge commitment you make as a parent of a softball athlete through both your time and your financial support.

This Parent Guide was developed to help parents to understand how to assist your child in achieving their full potential. The more you as a parent understand the role of proper training, competition, nutrition, hydration, rest, and recovery, the better the experience your child will have in softball.

Softball Canada encourages parents to be involved in your child’s softball experience and to be educated in the concepts of LTPD and physical literacy.
