Arcadia National Anti-Bullying Policy

Arcadia Nartional Little League (ANLL) Anti-Bullying Policy

Given the serious effects bullying has on youth and organizations, ANLL can’t simply dismiss it as a “normal” or inevitable part of childhood. There is nothing “normal” about ongoing incidents of harassment, violence and intimidation. Bullying not only leads to anxiety and low self esteem in youth who are targeted, but also causes other youth to feel unsafe. Youth of all ages deserve the right to feel safe and supported by all ANLL Board Members, Coaches, and parents. ANLL’s purpose and responsibility is to address all bullying issues that take place on ANLL grounds, activities and during ANLL functions.

Taking Bullying behavior seriously is an important step in working toward a safe and effective program. By raising awareness throughout our league, Board Members, Coaches and Parents can work together to ensure that ANLL is a place that youth and parents feel welcome and included.

By Raising awareness througout our league, ANLL participants can work together to ensure that our organization is a place that youth and parents feel welcomed and included.

No amount of bullying is acceptable

 
 
All ANLL Managers, Coaches are expected to discuss bullying and ANLL's anti-bullying poilicy with their players

FIELD CARE

Next to our players and volunteers, our fields are our most valuable asset. We take great pride in having the nicest playing surfaces in town! By following these guidelines you are ensuring that your children will continue to have quality well maintained fields to play baseball on and in addition you are helping to keep fees low. When doing Field Maintenance you should always leave the fields in better condition than you found them. Done properly, allow for 20-30 minutes after your game or practice for proper field care. Field maintenance is one of the largest single expenses in baseball. By following these basic guidelines, you will help ensure the quality and play-ability of your fields.

It is league policy that managers and coaches are ultimately responsible for the field condition and care, and fields must be left in a “ready to play” condition. Please make yourself familiar with the guidelines. It is also the managers/coaches responsibility to make sure his field care staff is educated on the proper techniques for field prep.

The most important activity is to rake after practices and games.  Fill in the low spots around the bases, pitchers mound and batters box. Push the dirt back into the low spots with the flat side of the rake.

Rake the baselines a certain way in order to prevent lip build up in the infield. Always rake the dirt away from the grass edge and start from home plate and work your way down to 1st and 3rd. When raking the plate or mound area always rake from the grass edge back to the plate or pitching rubber.  

If the fields are not maintained daily after use, they will be in bad shape by seasons midpoint. Help yourself by recruiting players and parents to help you and your assistant coaches. If you have enough help it should only take 10 minutes to clean up the field.



Lock-up Procedures

Locking up the field is an important role left to the last manger on the field.  

If it's going to rain in the next day or two install covers over pitchers mound and home plate. 

Ensure all equipment is put away, nothing is left in the dugouts or on the field. Batting cage equipment and lights are off and put away. Lock up all doors on the cage and back parking lot gate.

Anouncer booth should be shut down, and doors locked.
