About Rally Cap
This will be the second year BMBA runs the Rally Cap. The Rally Cap program replaces T-Ball and Blastball for kids born 2010-2013. This is a Baseball Canada initiative that is gaining momentum across Canada. Some provinces have even mandated the program outright. It is a highly structured program that emphasizes learning the fundamental skills of the game all while having as much fun as possible. Like all our other divisions, the success of Rally Cap will be highly dependant on the volunteers who support it, so please consider coaching or helping your child’s team this year. To read more on the program, please refer to the Baseball Canada website http://www.baseball.ca/rally-cap-initiation-program
Rally Cap Jr. (2012-2013 birth years)
Rally Cap Jr. will be a modified version of the Rally Cap program for our youngest division. Coaches will follow structured step by step drills that will enhance the fundamental skills of throwing, catching, hitting and running in a positive environment that emphasizes fun.
For the 2017 season, Rally Cap Jr. will run Tuesdays at Lions Park in Beamsville from 6-7pm. Due to the young age of the players, please expect to help out the team in some form, even if only corralling kids on the field during drills.
Rally Cap Sr. (2010-2011 birth years)
In Rally Cap Sr., like the Jr. division, coaches will follow structured step by step drills to build the fundamental skills of throwing, catching, hitting and running. The last half hour will see game action where players will either hit off a tee or see underhanded coach pitching. Later in the season, at the coach's discretion, the pitching machines used in Rookie Ball may be used. Players will have the opportunity twice a year to receive coloured caps by demonstrating that they have accomplished milestones in the areas of throwing, catching, hitting and running similar to coloured belts in karate or badges in swimming. More detailed information can be found on the Rally Cap webpage.
For the 2017 season, Rally Cap Jr. will run Thursdays at Lions Park in Beamsville from 6-7pm
