Youth Partnership Program
Through the development of this ODP program, we would like to form a direct line of communication, mentorship, influence, motivation, and inspiration from the pro's to the grassroots athletes and programs. The trade off for the NPF is a network of young softball players, enthusiastic players, and fans that will help support the growth of the professional game.
NPF Official Develpmental Partnerships are divided into 3 categories: Park Partner, Performance Partner, and Playing Parnter.
Park Partners will include single parks and/or full complexes. This category will fit partners that host more than one league or team in their park and would like the ODP to encompass all activities held at the particular location.
Performance Partner is designed especially for training schools, training clubs, training groups. individual private coaches and teachers, and camp/clinic groups or organizations. This category will allow a facility, individual, or organization to involve their students and/or clintele in the Official Developmental Partnership.
Playing Partner is the group that most likely suits individual teams, organizations of teams, leagues, tournament groups, etc. This will allow teams that may not be in a specific park every week or weekend to still have the ODP involvement.
