Rally Cap has evolved and has a new national partner...  To learn what a Rally Cap session &/or season looks like, what coach/parent helper responsibilities are, what equipment is required; to find out what the changes are and to hear answers to common questions associations have, Baseball BC has partnered with Baseball Canada & the Toronto Blue Jays to bring you a free information session January 16th at 7pm for associations, directors, coaches, coordinators, parent leaders/helpers, and alike. Missed it...? You can watch the video recording linked below...

The updated Rally Cap mini book including practice plans, videos, & more is now available on rallycap.ca or can also be found by clicking here.

Additionally, 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 then 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... Therefor, 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.  Click here for more info on the Parent Leader/Helper Athlete Development Program

 

Baseball for life...and Rally Cap is the start !!

Good things come in threes! Taking its cue from rally cap tradition, Baseball Canada’s Rally Cap program mixes practice with game time for enhanced skill development and sportsmanship, in a fun and supportive environment.


Rally Cap is designed for T-Ball and Blastball participants, their coaches, and parents. Three teams convene to share a playing time, with two teams playing 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. Colour-coded Baseball Canada baseball caps are awarded and celebrated based on levels of accomplishedment.  Caps can be ordered directly from Baseball BC as a Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) Member by e-mailing the completed order form linked at bottom 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 levels.
