Lobo Little League 2021

Parent Commitment/Code of Conduct

Parents must read, understand and sign this form prior to their children participating in our league. Any
parent guilty of improper conduct at any game or practice will be asked to leave the sports facility and be
suspended from the following game. Repeat violations may cause a multiple game suspension, or the season
forfeiture of the privilege of attending all remaining games.


I pledge to abide by the following standards of behavior as a parent of a player in Lobo Little League, Inc. I make
this pledge for my entire family and any spectators I bring to Little League events.

I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect
and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, umpires, and spectators at
every game, practice or sporting event.

I will always remember that children participate to have fun and that youth sports are conducted for children,
not for adults.

I will insist that my child’s coaches uphold this code of ethics and the Coaches’ Code of Ethics.

I will learn the rules of the game and the policies of the league.

I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any umpire, coach, player, or
parent such as booing and taunting, refusing to shake hands, or using profane language or gestures.

I will be a respectful fan by not criticizing the umpires and other officials and remembering that they are
volunteers.

I will insist that my child treat everyone with respect regardless of race, sex, creed, or ability.

I will respect the officials, umpires, and score keepers of their authority during games and will never question,
discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon
time and place.

I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.

I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more important than winning, so that my child will never feel
defeated by the outcome of a game or his/her performance.

I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.

I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other participant for making a mistake or losing a competition.

I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child over winning. I will also
deemphasize games and competition in the lower age groups.

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 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 do my best to get my child to all games and practices on time. I will call my manager/coaches if we are
going be late or miss.

I will assist my team with field prep and clean-up and take my turn at concession duty. I will help keep
up Lobo’s appearance by picking up trash, picking weeds, and helping with field maintenance. I will not
smoke on Lobo Little League property, but in designated areas.

The Little League Parent/Volunteer Pledge

Player Code of Conduct

Lobo Little League welcomes all eligible participants to become a part of its baseball program, but requires participants to
acknowledge that appropriate behavior is an essential ingredient to the success of the program and the enjoyment of those
involved. Accordingly, all those interested in participating in Lobo Little League are required to review and abide by this
Code of Conduct, as a condition to eligibility. Any individual who fails to abide by these requirements is subject to
disciplinary action by Lobo Little League, including suspension and a termination of participation, without refund
of participation or other fees.


I will not force my child to sign-up to play but, once committed to a team, will use my best efforts to encourage and enable
my child to participate fully in his or her team's practices and games and use his or her best efforts to practice, seek
personal improvement in skills as a teammate and learn the game.

1. I will be a positive role model for other participants of all ages by encouraging good sportsmanship and positive support for all
players, coaches, umpires and spectators at every game, practice and associated activities, and will ensure the same behavior
from my guests and family members. I will talk first and predominantly about the positive things in each practice and game. I
will emphasize improvement and success for each individual player, and avoid comparisons to the more or less skilled players.

2. I will not engage in any unsportsmanlike conduct with any umpire, coach, player, parent, or any other person, including, without
limitation, booing or taunting, or verbally criticizing umpire calls, coaching decisions, plays in the field or game results, or using
any profane or abusive language or gestures, and will ensure the same behavior from my guests and family members.

3. I will emphasize that mistakes, errors, bad calls and losses are part of any game (and life) and develop strategies to learn from
those events, not dwell on them and develop a strategy for moving forward to the next play or situation.

4. I will neither engage in nor enable any behavior or practice that would endanger the health or well-being of any of the
participants or spectators at any game, practice or associated activity (including, without limitation, any inappropriate physical
contact or verbal attacks), and will ensure the same behavior from my guests and family members.

5. I will ensure that my family promotes respect for all players, coaches, umpires, spectators, and administrators, regardless of
race, color, gender, playing ability or any other category. I will not make or disseminate critical or derogatory remarks
(including by email or other electronic media) that are designated to harm, or would have the likely effect of harming, another's
reputation or standing in the community. I will therefore handle any issues or complaints that I may have in a constructive
manner and in a private setting that is appropriate under the circumstances.

6. I will learn the rules of the game and the league’s in which I participate, and ensure that I understands those rules and the
importance of playing by the rules. I will neither promote nor engage in any activity designed to avoid or disregard the rules of
the game or any league, or manipulate any process to obtain a result inconsistent with those rules, including any process for
selecting teams.

7. I will abide by and respect the calls of the umpires on the field, and understand that our umpires may make mistakes. I will not
challenge or demonstrate any objection to a judgment call made by an umpire during a game, and will ensure the same
behavior from my guests and family members. I understand and agree that any challenge or argument with a judgment call
may result in disciplinary action against me.

8. I will respect the public and private property on and around our playing fields and participate in ensuring that no damage to or
theft of such property occurs, and that all fields are maintained in at least as good condition at the end of each game and
practice as at the beginning, with all trash and other items properly disposed of or removed from the field.
