I hereby pledge to provide positive support, care, and encouragement for my child participating in youth sports by following this Parents’ Code of Ethics:
I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, and officials at every game, practice or other HDYB events.
I will place the emotional and physical well being of my child ahead of my personal desire to win.
I will support coaches and officials working with my child, in order to encourage a positive and enjoyable experience for all.
I will refrain from the use of tobacco and alcohol and will refrain from their use at all youth sports events.
I will remember that the game is for youth - not adults. I will do my very best to make youth sports fun for my child.
I will ask my child to treat other players, coaches, fans and officials with respect regardless of race, sex, creed or ability.
I will help my child enjoy the youth sports experience by doing whatever I can, such as being a respectful fan, assisting with coaching, or providing transportation.
At HDYB, the Baseball Committee will take a no tolerance approach to the above. If an umpire or a HDYB official throws you out of a game you must leave the ballpark immediately. You will be suspended from the ballpark for a time to be determined by the baseball committee. Depending on the severity of the offense this may result in suspension for the remainder of the season.
