Welcome to BLAST BALL!
Blast Ball is the FIRST division of RMMBA baseball!! If your child is born in 2016, then this is the division for you. Blast Ball is focused of the FUNdamentals of baseball. Every player gets a chance to field all positions and bat everywhere in the line up. We focus on learning the skills of the game, while having fun and being part of a team environment.
Blast Ball is exactly the same as Rally Cap, just for 2016 players (Rally Cap is for 2015 players).
Players hit off the tee and can only run one base at a time. We use a softer ball for safety, so all kids can learn to throw and receive without developing a fear of the ball.
You will play at approximately 5:45-7pm Monday's and Wednesday's at various Ridge Meadows school fields. Season starts first week of April and is approximately 10 weeks long. You will play an opening day, batathon in May and end of year day in June, all on Saturday's. Beside these three Saturdays, it is ALWAYS just every Monday and Wednesday.
Your association provides all the field gear, bats and schedule. Your child will need a glove, helmet, cleats and a positive attitude.
Registration is usually full so sign up early to avoid disappointment.
RMMBA is 100% volunteer run from top to bottom. We will hold coaches clinics for those than can commit to coaching. Those that cannot coach are still required to volunteer at EVERY game. Coaches need to focus on coaching, parents must set up/take down the fields, ensure the safety of the children waiting to bat, help with warm up and cool down. It's a very small amount of work if we all do our part, but a huge job if you let it all fall on your coach!
