Rally Cap Ball - Age 4 or 5 (2013 & 2014)
The Rally Cap program was developed using existing baseball initiation programs, as well as adding new ideas in order to create increased interest for players.
In the Rally Cap baseball program, each team will consist of 8 to 10 players only. This allows for the formation of more teams, meaning more repetitions, which will allow players to improve their individual skills.
Each session will last 75 minutes. Two (2) teams will play an actual game while one (1) team will be practicing drills in the outfield area. After each inning played (both teams have batted), teams will rotate. The rotation will be as follows: Team on 1st base dugout side moves to 3rd base dugout - team on 3rd base dugout moves to the outfield - the outfield team moves to the 1st base dugout.
In Rally Cap baseball, three (3) teams will meet at the park at the same time. At the start of the season, the emphasis will be on specific baseball skills development and modified baseball games will be added to the program as these skills are better mastered.
The sessions are on Saturday mornings at 8:30am or 10:30am at Norm Jary Park beginning after the long weekend in May and run for 10 weeks.
Players are required to have their own glove and helmet. Running shoes or cleats are to be worn. League will provide a hat and team coloured jersey.
