Format / Modifications: The format / modifications have been implemented to ensure the players, coaches and parent helpers remain engaged during the games while still ensuring the players are taught the fundamentals of the game. The 2017 program will be run very similar to the 2016 program based on feedback from the players, coaches and parents.
Underage Players: Underage players can be moved up from the Rally Cap Division to the Rookie Division, however, the program gives first priority to players born in 2008 & 2009. The Lacombe Minor Baseball Association requires all players to first register online in their appropriate age category. If a parent would like to move their child up to the Rookie Division they will register their child in Rally Cap and then email the Rookie Director with their request. The player will then be placed on a waitlist, if there is still room in the Rookie Division prior to it's start date (Thursday, April 27th) the parent will be contacted by the Rookie Director to confirm they still want to move their child up to Rookie. If there is not room, the child can play in the Rally Cap Division.
