Softball Canada gathered a group of pitching experts and met in Ottawa, ON in February 2008 to develop the curriculum with the group led by Mark Smith (current Head Coach for Softball Canada’s Men’s and Women’s National Teams and former Senior Men’s National Team pitcher). On the weekend of April 18th-19th, 2009 in Toronto, Ontario, Softball Canada held a training session for Master Pitching Instructors selected by their respective Provincial/Territorial Softball Association. The purpose of the weekend was to introduce the Master Pitching Instructors to the pitching curriculum. A manual has been created that outlines the curriculum. The meeting also served to validate the curriculum through discussions and demonstrations.
