DQ® Rally Cap Initiation Program
Rally Cap, while designed for the kids, is also a tremendous teaching tool for coaches just entering the game. A complete set of practice plans, along with drills and skill development ideas are built into this program.
The DQ® Rally Cap Program is an initiative to enhance players’ and coaches’ first experience with the game. The program helps teams teach players the five FUNdamentals of baseball in a fun and safe environment. Players have the opportunity to perform different tasks in order to earn a coloured Baseball Canada DQ® Rally Cap. Cap colours correspond with various levels of achievement. The program is designed for young baseball players.
1. Create a fun environment in which children and adults are actively engaged together in the game of baseball.
2. Develop fundamental motor skills and teach baseball skills and rules to the players.
3. Experience success with an emphasis on good sportsmanship.
4. Promote increased self-esteem among DQ® Rally Cap children and adults.
5. Recruit new coaches and volunteers.
