Blastball is for 5 and 6 year olds. It offers players the opportunity to learn, develop and practice fundamental baseball skills at hitting, throwing, fielding and running. Soft baseballs, wiffle balls and tennis balls are used. The format for this division includes a variety of fun skills stations and various baseball-style games.
New to Blastball is the incorporation of the DQ Rally Cap 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 colored 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, teach baseball skills, and basic rules to our players.
3. Experience success with an emphasis on good sportsmanship.
4. Promote increased self-esteem among DQ® Rally Cap children and adults.
Blastball runs once per week. After opening day (April 28), Blastball will be late afternoon 4-5pm every Monday except Victoria Day, and end by June 25th.
