Timbits Softball (U7)

The Learn to Play Program is designed to be a young person’s introduction to the sport of Softball. The emphasis is on FUN, ACTION, and a POSITIVE ATMOSPHERE, with a gradual introduction to non-stressful competition. The Learn to Play Program provides children aged 4-7 with maximum opportunity to practice the skills necessary to successfully take part in the (adult) game of Softball.  The program allows children of all skill levels to achieve the same number of skills repetitions. The drills also offer a high success rate for every child, which improves every player’s self confidence.
