Welcome to the Lacombe Minor Baseball Association (LMBA) Rally Cap homepage. The LMBA has a strong history of providing baseball opportunities for athletes, coaches, umpires and parents, and looks forward to another successful season.
***The start time has been changed to 7:30pm as minor soccer was also hosting their AGM at 7:00pm on the 13th at the LMC. In order to accommodate families that need to attend both AGMs, the minor soccer AGM start time has been moved to 6:30pm and LMBA AGM start time has been moved to 7:30pm.
The LMBA is hosting their 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday, February 13th, 7:30pm at the Lacombe Memorial Centre (5214 50thAvenue) - County Room. Everyone in attendance will receive a $25.00 discount off of their child's registration fee if they are registered within a week following the AGM. Online registrations will not open until after the AGM.
The LMBA Executive has established a Policies and Guidelines Handbook to assist the current and future Executive along with it's members (players, parents, guardians) with direction in regards to: refunds, imports, underage and overage requests, roster size, roster selection, player transfer requests and consistency in uniforms / apparel. The handbook can be accessed by clicking HERE.

Rally Cap is not considered a drop off program. A parent / guardian must be available at the field for the child at all times.
A Head Coach and Assistant Coach are assigned to each Rally Cap team. Parents are also encouraged to assist the coaches as Parent Helpers. A skills and drills clinic will be hosted by the LMBA in Lacombe prior to the season starting which will provide the coaches with some basic information about throwing, catching, fielding and hitting along with numerous drills that are camouflaged as fun games. The Rally Cap Director coordinates a coaches meeting prior to the season starting that allows coaches to meet each other, go through their equipment bag, review the Rally Cap Package (schedule, rules, format, modifications, etc.) and ask questions. Practice plans for the first two practices of the season are provided for all of the coaches to follow. The LMBA also provides Rally Cap coaches with a Rally Cap manual created by Baseball Canada which provides a variety of skill development drills and games that are age appropriate.
Further information about coaching in Rally Cap can be found under the Coaches tab above or by accessing the Coaching Certification FAQs.
Information about requesting an underage or overage player to participate in Rally Cap can be found in the LMBA - Policies and Guidelines Handbook. Please click HERE to access it.
