OTTAWA- Baseball Canada is excited to announce the launch of a Rally Cap App that will bring a variety of resources to coaches teaching baseball at the initiation level. The app was designed in partnership with CrowdTorch by Cvent.
“The Rally Cap App will give coaches access to practice plans, tips, drills and extra resources through their mobile device or tablet,” said André Lachance Director of Business and Sport Development with Baseball Canada. “The app is a great tool that coaches can utilize to enhance their own coaching experience which in turn will benefit their young athletes.
“An exciting feature of the app is that it allows us to update and add new information that coaches will be able to implement immediately into their season and practice plans. From a coach education perspective, this is really exciting for baseball in our country.”
Baseball Canada launched the Rally Cap program in 2006 as an introductory level of baseball for kids ages 5-9. The program is an initiative to enhance players’ and coaches’ first experience with the game. The program helps teams teach players the FUNdamentals of baseball in a fun and safe environment. Players have the opportunity to perform different tasks in order to earn a colored Baseball Canada Rally Cap. Cap colours correspond with various levels of achievement. The Rally Cap program is an outcome of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) program developed by Sport Canada.
