Youth Baseball 2023 

We are pleased to provide a program that focuses on skill development for all ages, combining competitive play and sportsmanship in a fun baseball environment. 

General Program Information  

Dakota Community Centre is part of the Bonivital Baseball Association and teams can be made up of players throughout the Bonivital catchment. At the younger age groups (Rally Cap & Grand Slam) you can make a friend request, but the friend must be from the same home community centre. i.e. Dakota. Dakota Baseball will do its best to accommodate these requests but cannot guarantee that all requests will be fulfilled. 


All players registered in Bonivital are invited to attend District Tryouts for AA and AAA teams. To view the tryout schedule and learn more about registration visit


Coaches are the cornerstone of the sport experience for young players and thus essential for the success of youth sport programs at Dakota CC. If you are interested in volunteering as a coach or manager in 2023, please let us know when registering online.

Fair Play 

The Dakota Baseball Program focuses on principles of Fair Play. We will do our best to see that: 

  • All children are given the same chance to participate, regardless of gender, ability, ethnic background or race; 

  • Winning is kept in proper perspective; 

  • Coaches and officials are capable of promoting fair play as well as the development of good technical skills. 

Programs and Age Groups 

  • Rally Cap (7U players born in 2016, 2017, 2018) 

The Rally Cap Program is baseballs initiation program and is designed to enhance players' and coaches' first experience with the game for players 4-7 years old. 

The format involves three teams of 6 - 7 players that meet at the park at the same time. Two teams play a 20 minute game, while one team practices in the outfield. Every 20 minutes they switch, so that each team plays offense and defense and has one practice in the 60 minutes session. 

For more information on the Rally Cap program please visit the Baseball Manitoba website at

  • Grand Slam (9U players born in 2014, 2015) 

The Grand Slam Program is designed to promote physical development of children through the game of baseball. 

There are no hard and fast rules for Grand Slam. Baseball Canada has put forth guidelines; teams of 6 - 7, all players in the infield, all players bat each inning, no walks or strikeouts, etc. Typical game days could include a 15-30 minute practice and then a game with another team afterward. 60-90 minutes total.
