Coaches Code of Conduct

Coaches Code of Conduct

The Coach's primary role is to teach ALL kids assigned to his/her team the fundamental skills of baseball/softball in a fun, challenging and safe way.  This includes teaching each player how to properly bat and how to play multiple positions on the defense.    Coaches agree to attend any skill sessions that may be required by the Board of Directors and, moreover, any first aid courses that may be mandated by the Board. 

Coaches shall remain unconditionally supportive of the Organization’s commitment to the ideals of a positive and fun atmosphere, good sportsmanship, team play, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority.  Skill development takes priority.   Winning "at all costs" is not an acceptable attitude. 

Coaches agree to follow these principles:
-  Coaches will teach the game of baseball/softball to the best of their ability, but will continually work to improve their own understanding of -      the skills of the game and how to teach those skills.
-  Coaches will be positive role models and will do their best to provide a positive experience for the players and for the parents.  
-  Coaches will display and teach their players the principals of good sportsmanship, respect and team play whether the team is winning or            losing…
-  Coaches will provide organized team practices each week that will provide for the development of both team and individual skills and will         make full effort to provide practices that are both fun and challenging for the players.
