COMPETITION INTRODUCTION

For 2015, Softball Canada is requiring that at least one coach on every team roster attending Canadians must be certified at Competition-Introduction level in Softball. This means that the coach must go through the evaluation process after completing the 2 weekend clinic. If only the 2 weekend clinic is completed, the coach is trained, not certified, at the Competition-Introduction level.

Are you a coach that still needs to be evaluated by Softball Alberta to complete your Comp-Intro?? For more information on your evaluation click here. Please note, the athletes used in the evaluation must be in a U14 category and above.

Once you have read through the information in the above link, please fill out our Comp-Intro Evaluation Application Form with all the components complete and submit to the Softball Alberta office. ** NOTE: Please submit the application form at least 3 weeks prior to the earliest request date for an on-field evaluation**

**Please note that you must attend Weekend 1 and 2 in order to move on to the evaluation process of your certification. Starting in 2020, for U19, U23 and Men’s & Women’s Canadian Championship categories, ALL coaches must be Comp Intro Certified.
