CONSIDER THIS...

1) Be sure your player is at practice and games ON TIME. Baseball is a team sport and the team depends on everybody to be working together within the scheduled times.

2) If you're dropping your player off for a practice or a game, please be sure to pick up your player ON TIME (coaches are not babysitters).

3) Let the coaches do the coaching. If you want to coach, volunteer.

4) Be supportive at games. If you have nothing positive to say about the team, players, coaches, or umpires, keep it to yourself.

5) Offer to help out. Help set up the fields, help with the equipment, help keeping score, help cleaning up the field. The coaches put in more time at one game than most parents during the whole season.

6) Fields: Please be mindful of our facility.  Pick up your trash after each game.  There are trash bins located all over our park for your convenience.  Please lets all do our part and keep our fields and park looking spectacular.  

7) All local Little Leagues are required to conduct background checks on Managers, Coaches, Board of Directors members and any other persons, volunteers or hired workers, who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players or teams.
