Winterball Program


 

General Information

The primary focus of Winterball is to introduce children to the fundamentals of baseball in a fun manner that is non-competitive and that provides a positive learning experience for all involved. Held indoors in your school's gymnasium this program is designed for students aged 6 to 12 (K - 6), Winterball progresses through activities set out in nine different lesson plans, taught in three sets to ensure students learn at an appropriate skill and ability level. All students following the teacher's lesson plans detailed in the Winterball program will exhibit proficiency in movement skills while gaining social skills by working and getting along with others. Best of all, the Winterball Program can be installed in any elementary school FREE of charge. Baseball Alberta will even come out to your school for the first day to launch the Winterball program to all classes.
