We agree to honor and support our athletes in a positive and healthy process that includes the following:
Stress the importance of respect for coaches, teammates, opponents and umpires and also emphasize the importance of contributing to the team and its success.
Serve as role models, see the "bigger picture", and support all teams and athletes. Derogatory comments directed to any coach, player or umpire will not be tolerated and may result in ejection from the field.
Leave coaching to the coaches and not criticize them, their strategies or team performance. Parents should avoid putting pressure on their children regarding playing time and performance.
Do not criticize any umpire at any time. The umpires, some of whom are volunteers, do the best job they can and do not play favorites in any way.
Smoking is not permitted at any Middletown Little League facility. Consumption of alcoholic beverages is strictly prohibited. Foul language will not be tolerated and will result in ejection from the field.
Always remember that the managers, coaches, board members, concession stand personnel, scorekeepers, and field personnel are all VOLUNTEERS that care deeply for all children taking part in Middletown Little League. They are all here to ensure that the children are learning a team sport, improving skill sets, and most importantly, to HAVE FUN!
