Learn To Play Softball!

The Tim Hortons Learn to Play Program (LTP) is a revolutionary way of introducing the sport of softball to 5-10 year olds children. Activities are included which foster the involvement of all players, including players with high and low skill levels.

It uses activities and lead-up games that are patterned after informal playground games that promise fun and lots of action. Participants will go home at the end of the night happy and tired while improving their fitness level and softball skills.

Learn to Play provides 5-10 year olds with maximum opportunity to practice the progressions necessary to successfully take part in the game of softball.

Registrations are now open for our learn to play programs, for boys and girls aged 5-10 years old. Visit your zone's website to register:
