About Rally Cap
The Rally Cap program, which has been developed by Baseball Canada, is an initiative to enhance players' and coaches' first experience with the game. The program helps teams teach players the five FUN-damentals of baseball in a fun and safe environment. Players have the opportunity to perform different tasks in order to earn a coloured Rally Cap. Cap colours correspond with various levels of achievement.
The video below provides a brief outline of the main aspects of how the program runs: (Note: SRV will be running the program for young players aged between 5 and 10 and will be using the 6 v 6 game model)
The Cap System
As in martial arts, with the use of coloured belts, the Rally Cap program uses 6 different coloured caps to identify achievement levels. Each player will receive their coloured hat as part of their registration fee, as well as a team shirt.
Various drills have been developed to meet the needs of young players, according to their skill level and facilitating their progression in the program. These drills cover the 5 FUN-damental core skills of baseball, which are:
- Movement skills (agility, balance and coordination)
