LEARN TO PLAY - BLASTBALL & ACTIVE SOFTBALL SCHOOL PROGRAM
BLASTBALL is the first softball/baseball type game specifically designed for children who have no experience playing the softball i.e. Kindergarten to Grade 2. It was a definite hit at the 2007 SPEA Conference, where dozens of Physical Educators experienced first hand, how it can help them fulfill the requirements set out in the Physical Education Curriculum. BlastBall is very flexible and can be incorporated into the Physical Education Curriculum in a variety of ways. It can fit into a unit teachers are presently teaching on the basic movement patterns of sending and receiving or it can be used as the main method of introducing these key movement patterns
ACTIVE SOFTBALL is designed for Grades 3-8, to teach students movement skills and concepts through the sport of Softball. Active Softball introduces combinations of loco-motor movements using different drills and applies a variety of tactical solutions while developing interpersonal skills during the different physical activities
