About Rally Cap

Welcome to baseball!
In Rally Cap our Goals are to:

  1. Create an environment in which players AND parents can have fun with baseball
  2. Introduce the skills for baseball through age appropriate physical literacy while following the LTAD (Long-Term Athletic Development)
  3. Model and teach competitiveness with an emphasis on good sportsmanship
  4. Promote increased self-esteem among the players and the parents.

For the Program to work effectively, we create small teams of 6-8 players along with mandatory Parent Participation. This allows for the formation of more teams and the ideal coach (parents) to player (1:1) ratio. What this means for the kids less "standing around", more engagement, more repetition, and more FUN!

Spring Baseball Season:
5U & 6U Game Play:
Games are 60 minutes. When it comes to batting, players have the option of hitting off a tee, having a coach use underhand soft-toss, or toss overhand, depending on the player's skill level.

All practices and games are at the Rookie fields at Mac Arthur Island.

7U Game Play:
On game days, two teams are scheduled for 1hr games at the Rookie fields for the first four weeks. They will start to learn how to make outs and the 7u game rules of baseball. Starting mid May, teams will play their games following the game rules on the Tadpole fields that have actual dugouts and look like a real baseball field. This provides players a great opportunity for progression to the Tadpole division with ease and it's pretty exciting for them to play on that field!!

When it comes to batting, coaches will pitch or a tee will be used. Each batter will receive a maximum of 6 pitches or 3 strikes (whatever comes first) from the coach. After 6 pitches or 3 strikes, the batter shall be given 2 soft toss pitches from the coach. If they do not put the soft tosses in play, the batter shall be called out, no exceptions. If using a Tee - maximum of 6 swings or 3 strikes (whatever comes first).

All practices and games are at the Rookie fields at Mac Arthur Island.

Fall & Winter Baseball Seasons:
Depending on interest and coach availability, 6U +/or 7U might be included in KMBA's fall or winter training seasons. Typically fall runs Sept - October, consisting of outdoor practices and winter is Jan - March in the Sussex Insurance Centre on McArthur Island.

Should the league offer such programming, you will hear from the Rally Cap coordinator if you played in spring or you can watch this page and our social media for registration.
