BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL
About Baseball and Softball:
THIS FUN AND FAST ARENA VERSION HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO ENCOURAGE NEW AND EXISTING PLAYERS TO PLAY THE GAMES OF SOFTBALL AND BASEBALL BOTH IN AND OUT OF SEASON!
The individual’s exposure to team sports allows for a character building experience. From a young age the youth are exposed to a variety of team sports where the goal is to build character, improve health and fitness as well as create a social environment to build lasting friendships and all while they have a ton of fun.
Arena Baseball and Softball is an adapted game of both sports focusing on the skills of the games – while making exciting adaptations to make both sports accessible to new and existing players, coaches and officials!
The introduction of Arena baseball and softball is to join the world of mini sports while increasing the number of kids playing softball and baseball during the season. Introducing a new way to play the same game increases the fitness challenge of the game and can become part of any health and fitness program followed by players all year around.
Arena baseball and softball helps the players enhance their skills that can then be developed during the pre-season and off season. Arena Baseball and Softball will allow for the promotion of the game of baseball and softball and by doing so reach a wider audience. The transition from playing the arena version of the game to the field will be increased as the involvement in the sport increases due to the promotional opportunity presented through advertising on and around the arena set up as well as the opportunity to be invited onto the Arnold Classic Africa platform for the 2nd consecutive year!
Teams are exposed to the benefits of building spirit, cooperation and character while learning new skills and having fun. Arena baseball and softball has the ability to reach players of all ages and skill levels and through the mixed and single gender teams there is an increased opportunity for the development of all avenues of the sports, from officials to supporters to enjoy an improved knowledge of the game. New officials can be introduced and trained through Arena baseball and softball allowing the growth of both sports in the community. Parents can watch their kids play and learn to be a part of the game through officiating, umpiring or scoring games.
Arena baseball and softball promotes a fun and fast way to learn, grow and development individuals in the team sports environment. The Hit the Pitch festival is aimed at creating festivals and league structures for teams to have short and long term goals to achieve.
The Arnold Classic Africa Sports Festival showcase includes baseball and softball as sports that promote the fitness health and wellness crusade of many participants worldwide. This amazing platform is a way to promote and support the Softball and Baseball federations that aim to build the sports in participation numbers and in international success.
