RALLY CAP (Co-Ed, 7 and under) - Season: May & June
YOB: 2016-2017-2018 - Tuesdays/Thursdays
The Rally Cap Program is baseball's initiation program and is designed to enhance players' and coaches' first experience with the game. The program helps teams teach players the five FUNdamentals of baseball in a fun and safe environment. Players have the opportunity to perform different tasks in order to earn a colored Baseball Canada Rally Cap. Cap colors correspond with various levels of achievement. In Manitoba, the hats are distributed free to associations.

Baseball Manitoba has adopted Baseball Canada's Rally Cap as the entry level, or initiation program for the 5 - 7 age group. The format involves three teams of six players that meet at the park at the same time. Two teams play a 20-minute game, while one team practices in the outfield. Every 20 minutes they switch, so that each team plays offense and defense and has one practice in the 60-minute session.

Rally Cap Program Goals
• Create a fun environment in which children and adults are actively engaged together in the game of baseball.
• Develop fundamental motor skills, teach baseball skills, and basic rules to our players.
• Experience success with an emphasis on good sportsmanship.
• Promote increased self-esteem among Rally Cap children and adults.
• Recruiting new coaches and volunteers

During the season the teams will be working on five fundamentals of baseball. Twice during the season, the players will have opportunities to perform different skill tasks in order to earn a coloured Baseball Canada Rally Cap (hence the program name). Different coloured hats are achieved based on the level reached.
