The Jr Rally Cap program has now been removed and we have now transitioned to a program that consists of 5,6,7 year old’s. The focus this year will be to have the same age groups on teams. Rally Cap for both age groups will run on Monday and Wednesday Evenings from 6-7:30 (Subject to change)
Monday nights will be focused on practice and skill development and will consist of the following station work:
Wednesday nights will be game night
Diamonds for practice and game nights are yet to be determined but will be communicated by the Rally Cap Director once the teams are made.
The program is focused on the children beginning to understand the fundamentals of baseball, learning the game and having fun.
Practice is very important within this age group and it is important they begin to understand good practice habits as they develop their skills.
Each team will play 2 mini games (1 inning each, 20 minutes/game) and have a 20 minute practice.
Rally Cap will focus on coach pitch, specifically for the older children in preparation for Rookie ball.
The ‘Tee’ will continue to be used within games, and as the season goes on it will be the coaches discretion on whether or not his/her players are ready for coach pitch.
It is likely that the younger children will require the use of the ‘Tee’.
