Softball Canada’s development program is targeted towards athletes who are interested in preparing for the 2021 season. The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) are currently planning for the next series of World Cups in all age categories. At this time, the U18 Men’s program is not confirmed for dates/locations nor specific birth year categories. The development program will be available to athletes born in 2004-2007 who are interested in working with the JMNT Coaching Staff. However, because of the uncertainty of the next U18 Qualifier and World Cup, the targeted birth years may be ineligible for WBSC events. We encourage all athletes born in 2004-2007 to be part of this program as it will be a great opportunity to work with our High Performance Coaching Staff.
Softball Canada would like to ensure that all interested athletes have access to this program. If any family would like to pay in installments or would like to discuss financial assistance for the registration fee, please contact Mike Branchaud at [email protected]
