Please arrive AT LEAST five (5) minutes to start of practices and thirty (30) minutes prior to the start of games.
Treat teammates, coaches and opposing teams and coaches and umpires with respect.
Respect and accept all official’s calls and decisions without argument.
Win with dignity, lose without excuses.
Adhere to all league and team rules.
Conduct yourself in a manner that represents good character and sportsmanship.
Once warm ups begin, the players become the coaches’ responsibility. Please respect this and find a great place to view the game and admire the hard work your player is putting forth. We may ask a parent or two to help run drills.
If your player is a pitcher, catcher or at bat, please DO NOT sit behind home plate. This is more distracting than helpful to your player(s).
Please let the coaches coach, players play and umpires call the game. Be supportive, but do not give directions to your player(s). They are doing their best to follow their coaches’ instructions and too much info can hinder their play. Please remember that we are all human and these are not professional athletes. We will all make mistakes. If a spectator does not agree with a called play, a coaches’/players’ decision, there is an appropriate time and place to discuss this. Shouting from the stands is not that time.
We respectfully request that parents should not be within 15 feet of the dugout during games. NO PARENTS ARE PERMITTED INSIDE THE DUGOUT DURING GAMES/PRACTICES. If a situation arises and a parent is needed, a coach will call you into the dugout.
Players should have water or sports drinks in the dugout. They should be prepared with extra drinks if needed. A healthy snack is permitted if necessary, but must be consumed without interference of play time.
No smoking, vaping, drugs or alcohol on or around the fields and NO profanity.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR... (it is very helpful to coaches if a parent or parents volunteer to help with these tasks)
Scorekeeping- this may be done using a traditional scorebook (provided) or utilizing the Game Changer App available for free at any app store.
Raking/dragging the field- our home fields must be raked following each practice and game.
Practice assistance- on occasion, the coach may request parents to assist on the field during different drills.
