Rally Cap (7U)
Rally Cap Ages 6-7
(7th birthday falls on or after January 1 of playing year - 2022)
This is an introduction to baseball level for children 6 to 7 years old. The two main purposes of this level is to get children interested in the game of baseball and to begin preparing them for 9U baseball.
The season starts the first week of May and finishes at the end of June. It is our goal to provide everyone involved in the sport with a fun and positive experience. This is accomplished by promoting active participation during the game and providing the players with the necessary fundamental skills during games and practices to learn and develop their individual and team skills while also enjoying their baseball experience. The objectives at this level are to focus on teaching proper throwing mechanics, fielding ground balls, catching, hitting and base running. Through active participation, players will continue to develop their personal and team skills. Each Rally Cap team will consist of 6 – 8 players per team making the innings go by quicker, therefore less time for kids to get bored.
It is recommended to have unlimited coaching assistants both on and off the playing field to help give children direction and we encourage parents to get involved and help out at practices and games.
Parents must remain at the diamond and not leave their children alone.
