Softball Victoria announce Learning & Development Partner

Softball Victoria is excited to announce the signing of Melbourne based company Leaders of Evolution on a 12-month Learning & Development partnership.

The partnership will focus initially on providing support to the Under 17 Boys and Girls state teams as well as identified coaches within the state system.

“We are excited to be partnering with Softball Victoria for the following 12 months to support their athletes and coaches,” Leaders of Evolution Director Damian Hecker said.

“As passionate educators we understand the importance of effective leadership in sport as well as providing coaches with contemporary coach development opportunities.

“Working with the Under 17 teams aligns directly with our pre-existing Young Leaders in Sport program and we look forward to assisting these young people in enhancing their leadership capacity.

“The opportunity to work with Victoria’s elite coaches builds upon the work we have previously done in this field with organisations such as AFL Victoria, National Rugby League and Ski and Snowboard Australia.”

Softball Victoria Chief Executive Officer Nick Frayne welcomed the opportunity to build a partnership that would have a direct impact within the elite pathway and at the grassroots of the sport.

“Leaders of Evolution are a proven education leader in Australian sport and having them as a Softball Victoria partner is a significant announcement,” Frayne said.

“Finding learning opportunities such as these for our community is critical as we look to build capacity within our coaching and participant base. We’re excited for the partnership to begin.”

There will be more details announced shortly and Softball Victoria will share the learning experiences of our athletes and coaches over the coming months.
