Code of Conduct for Parents
As a parent of a player in the Massasoit Babe Ruth Baseball Association, I agree to:
Respect the managers and their coaching staff. Managers and coaches are volunteers who donate their time and expertise to the Massasoit Babe Ruth Baseball Association. My appreciation of their efforts is paramount to ensuring a willing and ample supply of managers and coaches in the program. I will take practices and games seriously by making sure that my child(ren) are available and on time as scheduled. I will collect my children in a timely manner when practices and games are finished.
Respect all players. All players are contributors to a team and should be positively encouraged by all parents. I will not engage in insults or criticisms of players. Such behavior does not promote team spirit but breaks apart a team and will not be tolerated.
Follow proper channels to resolve any dispute with the Massasoit Babe Ruth Baseball Association. The Massasoit Babe Ruth Baseball Association is willing to assist any parent that has a problem with any of its programs. If I have an issue or problem, I understand that I should approach the manager or coaches of my child’s team or the league directors to address it. No parent should ever feel that the Massasoit Babe Ruth Baseball Association is unapproachable.
Display good sportsmanship at all times. The children are learning to become team players and work toward a common goal. I will always be non-judgmental in my support for their attempts and their outcomes.
Be a contributor to the Massasoit Babe Ruth Baseball Association. I will volunteer in some aspect of the program and will be a supportive and positive influence for all efforts made by the Massasoit Babe Ruth Baseball Association.
Appreciate that the Massasoit Babe Ruth Baseball Association is striving to provide the best baseball program for my children. The programs of the Norfolk Baseball Association are intended to be learning and fun experiences for all players. I will relax and enjoy the youth baseball experience.
