Softball Ontario’s Regional Fast Pitch Pitching Instructor for the NEW CANpitch National Program!
North York, Ontario- Softball Ontario is now accepting applications for the position of Regional Fast Pitch Pitching Instructor for Softball Canada’s new CANpitch Program. CANpitch is Softball Canada’s national pitching program created to provide a nationally standardized curriculum based on Softball Canada’s Long-Term Player Development framework to introduce and develop the skill of windmill pitching to children. The primary objective of the program is to provide a vehicle to enhance the development of pitching skills and knowledge for both players and coaches across Canada especially at the grassroots level, (where players and coaches have little to no experience in pitching).
The primary role of Softball Ontario’s Regional Pitching Instructor (RPI) is to be the pitching expert in their host location within Ontario. Regional Pitching Instructors will receive instruction and support from Softball Ontario’s two Master Pitching Instructors (MPIs) through mentoring and professional development opportunities. Regional Pitching Instructors will deliver the CANpitch Program throughout Ontario.

·         Commit to a minimum of two (2) years to the program
·         Deliver at least one 6-week training session to participants at the grassroots level (ages 6-12)
·         Submit a Police Records Check to Softball Ontario prior to working with participants
·         Attend a bi-annual training session hosted by Softball Ontario
·         Communicate on a regular basis with MPI and Softball Ontario about CANpitch
·         Provide feedback about the Program in regards to format, content and delivery
·         Provide recommendations for revisions to Softball Canada through Softball Ontario and the MPIs
·         Assist Softball Ontario and MPIs in writing an annual report for Softball Canada providing data about the program and summarizing the feedback from participants, parents and coaches regarding CANpitch
·         Promote CANpitch to local softball associations in their area

Experience in pitching a requirement; Coaching experience is an asset.
Each Regional Pitching Instructor will be compensated for their time at a reasonable hourly rate. Expenses such as meals, mileage and accommodations, if necessary, will also be covered at both the Regional Pitching Instructor training sessions and regular 6-week training session that they will be delivering.
