For Teachers

Softball Australia’s national participation program, Softball Batter Up is designed to be fun, flexible and engaging for children from kindergarten age to Year 6, focusing on fun activities while learning basic throwing, catching and striking skills.

You don’t need to be an experienced softballer or coach to deliver a successful program, which can be adapted for all ages and abilities using the Game Sense and CHANGE IT approach. Every teacher will feel confident delivering a Softball Batter Up lesson.

Softball Batter Up activities align with the national health and physical education curriculum and are written with coaches and teachers in mind. Detailed information is provided on each activity’s learning intention, band levels and skill focus, together with questions to encourage participant engagement.

The Program resources are designed to be informative, stimulating, comprehensive and easy to follow, providing any teacher the ability to develop creative sessions and provide strategies to keep students engaged.

With more than 60 different softball activities on offer, you can design your own softball sessions, or even design your entire program allowing for repetition over time to maximise learning and development opportunities.

The SBU for coaches and teachers booklet contains all the information you will need to run a successful and engaging program.
