My First Pitch
My First Pitch is a program developed by Baseball Canada and aimed at 10 year old players and coaches. This introduction to pitching program should give young coaches and players the confidence they need to succeed in the first year of player pitch baseball. Baseball Manitoba has trained numerous Learning Facilitators throughout the Province and will supply them with booklets to give to coaches when they attend a My First Pitch Clinic. Leagues and/or Facilitators should arrange for sessions with their 11U players and their coaches. The coaches are taught pitching mechanics and shown how to properly teach them to the players. Baseball Manitoba suggests that this is done with coaches and players 2-3 times during the season to obtain optimal results. Coaches shoudl be prepared to pay a $10 fee to attend the clinic.
If you would like to host a My Firt Pitch Clinic in your area - please email Jason Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include: League, facilitator, location, time and the number of expected coaches.
Upon completion of the clinic, Facilitators must send a completed copy of the MY FIRST PITCH CLINIC REPORT to Jason Miller via email.
