Tim Hortons Learn to Play Program

The Tim Hortons Learn to Play Program (LTP) is a revolutionary way of introducting the sport of softball to children. LTP ensures children of all skill levels have FUN while improving their fitness levels and developing their Fundamental Movement Skills.

   LTP ensures children have fun while improving their fitness & developing their skills, is           action-packed, fosters success for all ability levels, and has easy-to-follow lesson plans for     new & experienced coaches. This program also contains activities and lead-up games that     are patterned after informal Playground Games, gives every child more opportunities to         develop softball skills because everyone is active for every minute of every season, and is     nationally  recognized and approved.

   There are three (3) levels in the LTP program. These levels are a progression of skill
   development. Players are placed into a level based upon age and/or abilities. The levels         go as follows:

Level 1: 5 to 7 Years with one (1) hour sessions made up entirely of the prepared lesson plans 
Level 2: 7 to 8 Years with 45 minutes using prepared lesson plans followed by a 45 minute modified game 
Level 3: 9 to 10 Years with 30 minutes using the prepared lesson plans followed by a one (1) hour modified game
