LEARN TO PLAY
LEARN TO PLAY INFORMATION
The BMSA Learn to Play Program was specifically designed to provide a foundation and introduction to softball that is grounded in fun, fitness and fundamentals. We strive to create an atmosphere that encourages teaching even more than competition. It is a pressure-free program where kids can learn and practice the fundamentals of softball all while having fun and learning the game.
Girls and Boys: the Learn to Play program welcomes both girls and boys to play on the same teams. At these ages, the athletic ability is quite close and it develops a healthy respect towards the opposite gender.
Games: All games are played at Squint Lake Park. There are multiple teams at this level and they all play one another. The games are timed and not based on seven innings like traditional softball. Once the time is up, the game is complete.
Teaching the kids how to play is the top priority, not winning or losing.
Base Race: at the end of each game, the players take part in a ‘base race’. This has become one of the most fun highlights of the Learn to Play games. One team starts at Home plate, the other at Second Base. The first team to round all the bases wins. The winner of the base race is usually remembered more so than the game itself 🙂
Parent Participation: We need your participation as parents to organize fun teaching games and help out when needed.
