** Important Notice about Games and Practice Times for this Division

KMBA is mandated to be compliant with the Return to Play protocols set out by BC's Public Health Officer, Via Sport, Baseball BC, & BC Minor. Depending on how many teams we have in these divisions, we will have to schedule earlier start times on weekdays to ensure adequate social distancing & proper equipment sanitization between teams. Teams will rotate between the earlier and later practice times during the weekdays. We understand the earlier time might be challenging for families to get their player to the fields. KMBA is focused on the health and safety of all our players and their families. Play of "games" is not guaranteed. As all PHO guidelines for distancing must be adhered to, in event games cannot be played, a socially distanced practice which meets all current guidelines will be held.

  • 5U Weekday Practice day on Wednesdays. Start times: 4:30-5:15 or 5:45-6:30
  • 5U Games on Saturdays. Start time: 11 - 11:45

About Rally Cap

About 5U, 6U, & 7U

Open to players born in 2014 (7U), 2015 (6U), and 2016 (5U)

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!

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!! For the 2021 season, movement to the Tadpole fields is subject to change due to field usage conflicts. In this event, 7u will continue Sunday play on their rally cap fields.

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.
