Special Thanks to the Hosting Communities/Venues and to the Host Coordinators, as well as our Learning Facilitators – Loyola Power and Mark Nash. FYI, Softball NL will be providing more Coaching Courses later this spring.

Anyone wishing to Register must email Softball NL Executive Director Dave Feener at executivedirector@softballnl.ca no later than one week prior to the start of the course. You can also Email Money Transfer (EMT) the fees to the same email address.

FYI, Softball Canada has implemented a New Online Course called “Foundations of Coaching Softball” (FOCS). This is a great supplement to the Coaching Program and the bottom line is that by doing the Online Courses, less time will be required for the In-Class Courses.

Essentially, FOCS is designed for New Coaches and must be completed before participating in In-Class Courses.

To Register, you must visit https://thelocker.coach.ca/, register and create your NCCP# and complete FOCS in the eLearning Section. The fee for Part 1 of FOCS is $10 and $15 for Part 2.

Please feel free to email with any questions around Coaching Programs, including FOCS.
