Zero Tolerance Reminder
Pine Hill Little League Zero Tolerance Policy 2013
Pine Hill Little League will
continue to follow a "Zero Tolerance" policy regarding inappropriate
behavior. This policy will encompass all interactions during the course
of the pre-game season, regular season and post-season, which shall
include but not be limited to the following: games, practices, field
day, opening day, all-stars and any other league sponsored event(s).
Our sons, daughters, nieces and nephews far too often watch many of us forget the real reason for being involved in Little League. In the Board's opinion, this is reason for a zero tolerance policy. We must promote fair play, good sportsmanship and teach our children how to play the game. WE feel it is everyone's responsibility to teach the players that there is more to the game than winning or losing and the final score. The entire BOD takes this responsibility seriously. With that said the following statements will represent our position and more importantly constitute our "Zero Tolerance" policy from this point forward.
Our umpires are volunteers, who genuinely do the best they can to ensure our children's safety while upholding the spirit of the governing rules that guide Little League Baseball. We cannot and will not tolerate comments or constant complaining about umpire's calls. These comments jeopardize our ability to attract, recruit and retain these volunteers, without whom the games could not be played. In instances where parents, spectators or coaches cannot control their comments or behavior, they will be forced to leave the game area and (in extreme situations) may lose the privilege of watching or attending future games.
In all instances where discipline is required, the umpires are empowered to make the initial decision, and are the governing authority to act on behalf of the Board implementing the policy here in. In extreme situations / cases the Board will have the final say-so relating to long term expulsions / suspensions from involvement with the league.
We also would like to remind and underscore that umpire / crowd abuse is not the only purpose for a Zero Tolerance policy. There is concern for a growing number of adults associated with the league who model behaviors inconsistent with the philosophy of Little League Baseball. Zero Tolerance is not targeted at just parents and coaches, but everyone involved with the league. This list included all board members, coaches, players, parents, grandparents, extended family, friends and spectators.
Please help uphold the espoused virtues of Little League Baseball of character, courage and loyalty by showing good judgment and mutual respect towards others when taking in a game at Pine Hill Little League's field or while involved in any other Little League activity. Be an outstanding example for the children in our community, always remembering that Little League's mission is to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.
