Parent support during both games and practices is critically important to the success of the league. Be supportive of the team by ensuring your child attends each practice on-time. Be a positive role model during games, whether you are a manager, an assistant coach, or simply a spectator. Finally, please keep the following in mind:
Always be positive and enthusiastic.
Show your child positive reinforcement.
Observe practices and games to learn proper techniques to practice with your child.
Encourage your child toward skill improvement and good sportsmanship in every game.
Teach your child to always play by the rules.
Teach your child that hard work and an honest effort are often more important than a victory.
Applaud good plays by your team and by members of the opposing team.
Let the managers and coaches do the coaching.
Let an umpire be the umpire.
Recognize that the umpire is the closest to the play and that each umpire will "call them as they see them". The umpire is often an individual who has assumed a difficult, but necessary, role.
If you have concerns about anything regarding your team or the league, first talk to your manager. If your concern is not resolved, then contact the League Player Agent listed on the Board of Directors page.
