Bethany Minor Softball was one of twenty-five organizations to receive a S.A.F.E. Award from Softball Ontario at the recent ceremonies held in Toronto,Ontario.

What is a SAFE Award?

Qualifying for the SAFE award is an intricate process, involving full disclosure of club activities, codes of conduct, and training procedures. Jenny Gray, Bethany Sports Director, found out about the award while seeking training materials for the Bethany Softball league.

Award Funds Coach Development Program

Bethany Softball, receiving their award for Community Coach Development, will greatly impact the skills of all playing the game in their league.

'Having a certified coach is like having a certified teacher,'explained Jenny Gray, adding 'Every child deserves to have a trained coach who can help them in learning the fundamentals of the game.'

Softball Ontario’s new SAFE Award recognizes the efforts of local Softball Associations to improve its volunteer base, and help Softball Associations to train volunteers for the 2012 softball season. The SAFE Awards, along with Softball Ontario’s new Softball Association Fundamental Excellence (SAFE) Star Rating Program, help softball associations across Ontario improve the quality of softball by promoting volunteer development, organizational development, long term player development, and ensuring a strong link with Softball Ontario.

A Softball Association Fundamental Excellence Award is an award of $500 for Softball Associations to use in one of four (4) categories:
• Volunteer Development
• Community Coach Development
• Competitive Coach Development
• Umpire Development

'The award we received from Ontario Softball will be a great help in our coaching development program.' shared Jenny, adding 'We are looking forward to welcoming more coaches and umpires to our spring training program.'
