Rookie and Initiation Coaches

Updated Monday April 1, 2019 by Kanata Baseball Association.

The Rookie and Initiation Programs are Kanata Baseballs' initiative to enhance young players' first experience with the game. Players aged 5 to 9 participate in small-group development activities and purpose-built games with a focus ion fun, friendships, and outdoor play. It is a great age to play baseball, and a rewarding age to be a coach!

NO EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED. We are looking for outgoing, enthusiastic, passionate coaches who would enjoy playing with their children and fostering the love of sport. KBA will provide all necessary training and program materials, including practice guidelines.
