Welcome to Rally Cap - Baseball Canada's Official Initiation Baseball Program!



The Rally Cap Program is an initiative to enhance players' and coaches' first experience with the game of baseball! The program helps teach players the five FUNdamentals of baseball (fundamental movement skills, throwing, receiving, hitting, and base running) in a fun and safe environment. Players have the opportunity to learn, acquire and perform different baseball skills in order to progress through the different levels of the program. 

Baseball Manitoba has adopted Baseball Canada's Rally Cap as the entry level, or initiation program for the 4-7 age group. Age categories, within that range, are up to the discretion of the Club/League. 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 minutes session.

Program Goals

  1. Create a fun environment in which children and adults are actively engaged together in the game of baseball.
  2. Develop fundamental motor skills, teach baseball skills, and basic rules to our athletes.
  3. Experience success with an emphasis on respect and fair play.
  4. Promote increased self-esteem among Rally Cap participants.
  5. Recruit new coaches, parent helpers and volunteers.
