DLL Code of Conduct
Updated Sunday November 13, 2016 by Downtown Little League.
Code of conduct for players, coaches, parents, and spectators
The Downtown Little League places a high priority on sportsmanship and “Honoring the Game”, as it says on our uniforms. It is expected that all participants and spectators will exemplify these standards.
- Demonstrating teamwork and respect
- No arguing with umpires, coaches, or other players
- No bat or helmet throwing or other inappropriate displays of anger
- No taunting of opposing players or chanting when a pitcher is in motion
- Lining up to greet the opposing players after each game, win or lose, with a high five
- No arguing with umpires over judgement calls
- Treating all players on both sides of the field with respect
- Setting a positive tone and leading by example
For Players and Coaches, this means:
- Uniforms: Shirts tucked in and hats worn straight for all players, managers, coaches, and safety coordinators.
For parents and spectators this means:
- Let coaches do the coaching
- Do not question the decisions of any umpires
- Cheer enthusiastically, but only positively. Never do anything to make a player feel badly about their performance, on your team or the other
During a game, if an umpire or league official feels that there has been a violation of this code of conduct, he or she may take required action incuding removing the player, coach or parent from the game and/or premises. A report will be given to the League Board of Directors for further review and possible actions including suspension of League participation.
