The 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. Associations will utilize the program developed by Baseball Canada.
Goals for Rally Cap
1) Create a fun environment in which children and adults are actively engaged together in the game of baseball.
2) Develop fundamental motor skills, teach baseball skills, and basic rules to our players.
3) Experience success with an emphasis on good sportsmanship.
4) Promote increased self-esteem among Rally Cap children and adults.
5) Recruiting new coaches and volunteers
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 Rally Cap session should last seventy-five (75) minutes in duration. Three teams are present for the seventy-five (75) minute session. The usual session will feature three teams have a fifteen (15) minute warmup before the "game.” Following warmup, two (2) teams play a twenty (20) minute game, while one (1) team practices in the outfield. Every twenty (20) minutes they switch so that each team plays two (2) games and has one (1) practice in the sixty (60) minutes session (this can be altered to include more teams, more skill stations, et cetera).
During the season the teams will be working on five fundamentals of baseball. Twice during the season, the players should have opportunities to perform different skill tasks in order to earn a coloured Baseball Canada Rally Caps (hence the program name). Different coloured hats are achieved based on the level reached.
