Parent Code of Conduct
Parents Code of Conduct as set by BQI and administered by RLPBC
Remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not yours.
Encourage children to participate, do not force them.
Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
Encourage children always to play according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility or violence.
Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a competition.
Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skillful plays by all participants.
Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.
Respect officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise.
Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate.
Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
If you have a concern with a Coach or Administrator, rather than fester it, please communicate it.
It is important during trips away that parents allow their children the opportunity of “spreading their wings”
Parents should never discuss what they feel best for their child on field, unless they first have discussed it with the coach.
It is important for parents to support BQI in relation to all off field training and development programs.
Parents need to support BQI’s motto: “Development of young people is more important than the development of young baseballers.”
Encourage your child’s Coach (es) at all possible times. That small pat on the back “Goes a long way”
