About RCBA

Richmond City Baseball’s mission is to provide boys and girls from 5-24 years of age with the opportunity to learn and love the game of baseball. RCBA is a community based, volunteer run baseball organization. We are an active member of BC Minor Baseball, operating as a non-profit community sports organization. We have teams in divisions from 5U to 18U age groups including AA and AAA levels where applicable and run summer all-star programs for ages 8 and up.

Objectives & Expected Level Of Play By Division

5U-7U

RCBA continues to run the Rally Cap program at the Blastball and T-Ball levels. The program has been designed specifically for young baseball players and aims to increase interest in baseball.

Sessions are about 60 minutes in length. Two teams will occupy the field and after a 15-minute warm-up/training station the teams will begin playing a game. Teams will be made up of 6 or 7 players depending on the number of players registered.

The season starts in April and finishes towards the end of June.

Field location – R.C. Palmer Secondary School

8U-9U

The 8U/9U division provides baseball for boys and girls aged 9 years and younger.

Players learn to hit from a ball “pitched” by a pitching machine, with a maximum of 6 innings per game. Players will continue to develop their primary baseball skills such as hitting, base running, fielding, and throwing, with a concentration on having fun in a team environment.
Players are placed on teams by the division coordinator to create evenly balanced teams while attempting to honor as many special requests (for teammates or coaches) as possible.

8U is a "house" league so there is no travel required. The season starts in April and finishes towards the end of June.
