DQ® Rally Cap Program - Age 8U

The DQ® Rally Cap Program is an entry level program designed to introduce children to the game of baseball, keeping them active and engaged while learning the skills of the game in a fun, safe and informative atmosphere. DQ® Rally Cap Program would be an association based initiative for the 2011 season. Associations will utilize the program developed by Baseball Canada.

Each team will consist of a minimum of 6 players (6 being the desired number). This allows for the formation of more teams, and more importantly, an increase in repetitions for the participants, thus allowing greater opportunity to increase skill development.

A DQ® Rally Cap session should last 75 minutes in duration. Three teams are present for the 75 minute session. The three teams have a 15 minute warmup before the "game”. Following warmup, two teams play a 20 minute game, while one team practices in the outfield. Every 20 minutes they switch, so that each team plays two games and has one practice in the 60 minutes session.

During the season the teams will be working on five fundamentals of baseball. Twice during the season the players will have opportunities to perform different skill tasks in order to earn a coloured Baseball Canada DQ® Rally Caps (hence the program name). Different coloured hats are achieved based on the level reached.
