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 [email protected] 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.
