Parent Code of Conduct

I acknowledge and agree to the VLL Parent Code of Conduct.

Preamble

VLL has implemented this Parent Code of Conduct for the important message it holds about the proper role parents play in supporting their child in sports.

The essential elements of character-building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles of respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, trustworthiness, and good citizenship.

Any parent engaging in improper conduct will be subject to discipline from the league and sanctions may include removal from the facility and suspension from attending future games and league events.

As a parent/guardian, I understand and acknowledge that:

•      I play a special role in the development of my child and his/her teammates and my encouragement and good example will do more to ensure good sportsmanship than any other influence.

•      I will foster a baseball environment free of abusive, offensive, and vulgar language.

•      I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and I will refrain from their use at all sports events.

•      Children participate to have fun and that the game is for youth, not adults.

•      I will learn the rules of the game and support the policies of the league.

•      I (and my guests) will encourage good sportsmanship by showing respect for all players, coaches, umpires, and spectators.

•      I will encourage my child to do his/her best, work hard, have a positive attitude, play by the rules, be respectful of others and resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.

•      I will teach my child to be gracious and humble in both victory and defeat.

•      I will not engage in, nor encourage any behavior or practice that would endanger the physical, emotional, or mental well-being of any player.

•      I will not ridicule or yell at my child or other participants for making a mistake or losing a competition.

•      I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child over winning. I will also de-emphasize games and competition in the lower age groups.

•      I will promote the emotional and physical well-being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.

•      I recognize the challenges faced by umpires, particularly teenage umpires, and will demonstrate positive support and respect their decisions without dissent.

•      I will not enter the field of play, nor will I criticize umpires or dispute any of their calls, and I understand that there is zero tolerance for those that do.

•      I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.

•      I will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.

Covid Waiver

I acknowledge the ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, the contagious nature of the underlying virus (SARS-CoV-2), and that public health authorities continue to recommend various mitigation practices.

I further acknowledge that Vienna Little League is acting in good faith to implement the latest recommendations of public health authorities and to put in place measures to reduce the spread of the virus and disease.

I further acknowledge that I will act in good faith to follow those recommendations, including forgoing participation in any events if individual symptoms or circumstances warrant.

I further acknowledge that, even with those preventative measures, there is no guarantee that players, spectators, or volunteers will not become sick, and that I understand and accept the inherent risks of voluntary participation in Vienna Little League events as well as the risk that the season may be canceled, shortened, or otherwise altered due to public health concerns and that, in such event, the fees I have paid may be refunded – in whole, in part, or not at all – at the sole discretion of the League.

Publicity/Publications Release

I hereby grant Vienna Little League (VLL) permission to use photographs, voice recordings, or video taken of my player during the games and events associated with VLL in any manner to help promote the league activities as determined in the sole discretion of VLL. Such use could include publications, media releases, public announcements, electronic or otherwise, and on VLL websites or social media pages. I agree that such material is the property of VLL and that neither I, nor my player, will receive any compensation if such material appears in any of the manners listed above or other manner that the league deems appropriate. This release does not grant VLL the right to disclose any other biographical or identifying information regarding my player.
