Rally Cap Info

2019 Rally Cap / Pre-Rookie Program

The Rallycap and Pre-Rookie program is run through Parkland Minor Ball Association.  This program is designed to teach young children the basic skills of baseball and instill a lifelong love of the game.  This program introduces the sport in a fun way that encourages parents to join their kids on the field and enjoy baseball together while building their skills and knowledge of the game.

**We are modifying the way we run the Rallycap program this year in accordance with Baseball Canada/Baseball Alberta.  We will now have 3 years of the Rallycap program with evaluations to place players on teams of like ability to develop their skills.  There are six levels to the Rallycap program that players can move through.**

Volunteering

If you are interested in coaching your child’s team, there will be a coaching clinic on Friday, April 26 at 6:00 pm.  We will cover the drills used in the program and how to help develop your players and enjoy the season!

In order to run the Rallycap program properly and give the players the best opportunity for fun and development, we require two adult volunteers on field each night to assist the coach.  A schedule will be assigned to each team and if you are unable to be on field on your assigned night, you will need to make arrangements with another parent from your team to take your place.

Rally Cap Parent Meeting

There will be a meeting for all Rallycap level parents on Tuesday, April 9 at 6:45 at the TriLeisure Centre.  We will be meeting in the bleachers of the south soccer field.  This meeting will discuss the changes to the program, expectations for the season, and have a demonstration on how the program runs.

Meet the Coach Day

On April 27 at 11:00 am, all players are invited to the green space at Henry Singer Ball Diamonds at 138 South Ave to meet their coach and team and pick up their uniform. 

  • Your child will meet their coach and team mates
  • They will receive their t-shirt and baseball cap for the season
  • Once all teams have their t-shirts and ball caps, the teams will do a parade around the green space with their team
  • The players will receive a hotdog, chips and a bottle of water
  • Parents and siblings can also enjoy a hotdog, chips and water at the minimal cost of $1.00/item

Evaluation Day

In order to form teams of like ability so the players can develop their skills at their level, we will be having preseason evaluations on April 17 and April 18 from 6:30-7:45.  Your child will need to attend only one of those evenings for approximately 30 minutes to run through the series of stations.  An email with your child’s date and time will be sent out prior to then.

There will be another evaluation in the middle of June to see where the players are at in the Rallycap program.  These evaluations will be done on your regular ball night at one of the Rallycap fields.  More information will follow as the day draws closer.
