Stay Active has a partnership with Softball SA through Sporting Schools which means you can book us directly for your next Softball Batter Up program. Softball Batter Up is a multi-session program, introducing participants to the fundamental skills of softball and ensures maximum participation and enjoyment.
Stay Active encourages all students aged 5 - 12 years to participate in at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day, to meet the minimum recommended requirements for this age group as outlined in the Australian Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines. Participating in an after-school Softball Batter Up program enables students to achieve their 60 minutes, as well as the other great benefits of physical activity such as enhancement of memory, concentration, behaviour and academic achievement.
Softball Batter Up programs are designed to be fun, flexible and engaging for children, focusing on fun activities while learning basic throwing, catching and striking skills. Using the Game Sense approach, amongst other benefits, students will be engaged in minor and modified game strategies and concepts where there are opportunities to develop both skills and an understanding of the tactics of the game.
Stay Active can deliver an after-school Softball Batter Up program ranging from 4 – 8 weeks in duration. Our maximum number of participants is 25, or 30 if there is an allocated teacher/SSO who actively assists every week. We ask that, where possible, the program is offered to an age range of children whom span across no more than three year levels (e.g. years R – 2). This allows our Children’s Sports Facilitators to design a program that is tailored to that specific age group.
To promote ongoing participation in sport and physical activity beyond the delivery of our programs, Stay Active endeavours to utilise any sports equipment available at the school and/or OSHC. However it is important to note that this will be discussed with the school prior to scheduling the program.
Stay Active coaches have completed Softball Australia's Softball Batter Up Coaching Induction course which qualifies them to run Softball programs in primary schools.
