WHAT LITTLE LEAGUE EXPECTS OF OUR PARENTS

Attend your child’s games. Be a supportive parent for the manager and team. Communicate with the manager only in appropriate ways. Cheer for all players on both teams. Be a positive role model Be there for your child whether successful or struggling for success. Respect and support league volunteers and be prepared to “pitch in” when asked. Understand that the game is difficult to learn and play. Look for opportunities to work with your child on the basic skills of the game. Be positive and be supportive whether your team wins or loses. Be a model of good sportsmanship. Never use negative comments towards the players from either team. Respect the umpire’s decisions. Refrain from making the umpire’s job more difficult than it already is. Be willing to forgive the bad call, the inconsistent strike zone, or the muffed rule. There are no experts in a volunteer Little League organization.

WHAT OUR MANAGERS EXPECT OF OUR PARENTS

Come and enjoy the games. Help us make this fun for all the players on all teams. Allow the managers to run the team. REMEMBER THAT WE ARE ALL VOLUNTEERS. Please discuss any concerns that you have with the manager after the game and away from the team’s players. Set a good example for our players. Don’t yell at our umpires or opposing players. Volunteer to help us make this a positive experience for your child. There are many small and/or one-time jobs that need to be done during the season and during the off-season.
