Parent Code of Conduct

Parent Code of Conduct

Bainbridge Island Little League has implemented the following Parent Code of Conduct for the important message it holds about the proper role of parents in supporting their child and promoting good sportsmanship. Parents should read and understand the code prior to their children participating. By registering your child in Bainbridge Island Little League, you agree:

·     I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for the players (not adults), and teach my child that doing one’s best is more important than winning.

·     I will promote the emotional and physical well- being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.

·     I will teach and require that my child play by the rules, and treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.

·     I will promote good sportsmanship by respecting opposing fans, coaches, participants, spectators and umpires at every game, practice or related event, and will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the well being or safety of any particpant or attendee of a Little League event.

·     I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during games and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of the team. I will let the coaches coach, let the umpires ump and let the players play.

·     I will address any questions/concerns regarding practices, games, players or coaches at an agreed upon time and place (not during games and practices) in an atmosphere and non threatening manner conductive to problem solving.

·     I will refrain from the use of drugs, tobacco, and alcohol during Little League practices and games.

·     I will return all league items and equipment to my players coach in a timely manner.

Any parent or guardian guilty of improper conduct at any game or practice may be asked to leave the field or facility and may be suspended from the following practice and/or game. Repeat violations may result in a multiple suspension, or the forfeiture of the privilege of attending all Little League events for the duration of the season. There will be zero tolerance for parents who intimidate, interfere with, enter the dugout or field of play during a practice or game without authorization from the coach, physically or verbally abuse coaches, players, officials, or parents or other fans at any League practices, games or other events.
