Herriman Youth Baseball
Coaches Code Of Conduct
As we progress through the season each win and loss means a little more. Parents, Kids, & Coaches get a little more anxious and are less forgiving of mistakes. We need to take a moment to remeber that these are kids playing a game that is meant to be fun, recreational, and for enjoyment of the game. The Herriman Baseball umpires are kids that are working hard at learning the game but are subject to the same mistakes any person can be.
Coaches, a reminder of your signature on the 2015 Coaches Application of the Code of Conduct you all agreed to:
WBA 2015 Rules
There have been some questions and issues with the Rules this year. Below is the official WBA Rules. Coaches, Parents, and players should know and understand these rules.
"Sportsmanship is defined in this way:
Someone who plays fair, sticks to the rules and accepts defeat without any rancor or bitterness. On the field, a good sport plays hard and tries his or her absolute best to win within the scope of the rules. A good sport doesn't complain to the officials, doesn't "trash talk" and helps an opponent who falls down get back to his or her feet.
When all is said and done, this person has no regrets. The athlete put forth his or her best effort and played fairly, earning the admiration and respect of teammates, coaches, officials and opposing players. Despite being a true competitor, this person is willing to openly congratulate opponents and accept even the most bitter of outcomes, because he or she knows that there was nothing more that could have been done within rules of the game to change the end result."
