About the Event

coach5.jpgThe International Softball Coaches Symposium (ISCS) is an event co-hosted by Softball Canada and the Provincial/Territorial Softball Association where the event is held.

The goal of the International Softball Coaches Symposium is to provide you, the Coach, with the most up to date training and instructional techniques presented by some of the world's leading international coaches to raise the level of softball knowledge among softball coaches across Canada. The International Softball Coaches Symposium also provides you with an opportunity to interact with coaches from across the country.

For the first time, the 2014 symposium will offer two streams for the different level of coaches. A Community Coach stream will be held on Saturday only and the topics will apply to those coaching in a more recreational setting. The topics for this stream will be directed to coaches with NCCP Level 1 or Keep Coaching (Community Sport – Ongoing Participation). The Rep Coach Stream is directed at Level 2 or Competition - Introduction coaches going to provincials that lead to Eastern/Western Canadian Championships and/or Canadian Championships.

The eighth annual Get in The Game Symposium will be held in conjunction with the International Softball Coaches Symposium on Saturday February 22, 2014 at the Delta Meadowvale Hotel and Conference Centre in Mississauga. The Symposium is a great opportunity for Softball Associations across Ontario to come together and work towards improving softball in Ontario. The 2014 Symposium will feature many valuable sessions: Managing Risk; How to Acquire, Inspire & Fire Volunteers; Fundraising & Sponsorship; Social Media; Adult Participation; Coach Support and a session on Minors @ Play that will review Softball Canada’s new Minor Rules and Softball Ontario’s U10 pilots. The Get in The Game Symposium is a great opportunity for Softball Associations to learn from each other and work together to improve our game throughout the province.
