Rally Cap has evolved and has a new national partner... Welcome to the Toronto Blue Jays!!!
Rally Cap is designed for T-Ball and Blastball participants (aged 5 – 8), their coaches, and parents. Three teams convene to share a playing time, with two teams playing a game while the third practices. Teams rotate after each inning. The program offers complete lesson plans and initiation drills that are a bonus for coaches and parents new to the game.
The program includes a progressive element with up to three skill-testing opportunities for players each season.
Rally Caps can be ordered directly from Baseball BC by member organizations by e-mailing the completed order form linked at the top of this page.
Why Rally Cap? Since 2005, participating associations have reported increases in registration. The program combines playing and drills to keep young participants interested, active, and learning, and coming back to the game season after season. Visit Baseball Canada for more details about the program and the skill levelsrallycap.ca.

Baseball BC’s Grassroots Parent Leader/Helper Athlete Development Program can help Rally Cap run smoothly. We have found that when players partner with their parents for skills & drills, children have more fun and learn proper techniques at a quicker pace than when partnered with another youngster. That is why Parent Participation is encouraged for all grassroots divisions. This also helps relieve pressure on “coaches” when running practices or on game days... Therefore, we developed a manual for associations who are looking to provide more resources to newer coaches. This manual will explain baseball positioning and proper mechanics as well as provide drills & skills and practice plans to assist in ensuring everyone is active, learning, and having fun. Coaches and parent leaders/helpers only need to follow the program manual and practice plans to be successful.
Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) is a systemic approach developed and adopted by Baseball Canada to maximize a participant's potential and involvement in our sport. The LTAD framework aims to define optimal training, competition and recovery throughout an athlete's career. Enabling everyone to reach their full potential in the game of baseball and as an athlete.
