Activities and lead-up games are patterned after informal playground games that promise an hour of FUN and LOTS OF ACTION. Participants will go home at the end of the day happy and tired, while improving their fitness level.

Timbits Softball Makes Learning Fun!

The Timbits Softball 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. Timbits Softball provides children aged 5-10 with maximum opportunity to practice the skills necessary to successfully take part in the (adult) game of Softball. Timbits Softball 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.

Coaching has never been this easy!

Timbits Softball is also designed to be easily administered. Traditionally, at the 5-9 year old level, coaches are Moms and Dads with little or no coaching experience. Timbits Softball is designed to be easily implemented by a volunteer coach! The Timbits Softball Manual contains: lesson plans, easy to follow instructions, a letter to parents about the program, progressions for teaching basic skills, and lead up games.
