Players Code of Conduct

PLAYERS CODE OF CONDUCT

As a teammate, I understand that it is my responsibility to attend all team functions and to respect and obey the coach while at team activities.   It is also my responsibility to do everything I can to improve my skills as a player by practicing on my own in addition to team practices.  Above all else, I will demonstrate good sportsmanship to my teammates and to other teams and will show respect for the authority of the coaches and umpires when on the field.

Players shall…

  • Respect all coaches, players, league officials, umpires, spectators, and opponents
  • Treat others fairly – be a good teammate
  • Give 100% of your effort in practice – hustle all of the time
  • Display good sportsmanship and team play at all times.
  • Follow the direction of the Coaching Staff.
  • Make every attempt to be on time and ready to play for all games and practices.
  • Follow safety rules and do not endanger others on the field
  • Take care of league equipment
  • Leave other player’s equipment alone unless you have permission to use it
  • Show respect for the game of baseball or softball by knowing and following the rules of the game, by controlling your emotions when calls don’t go your way and by respecting the decisions of the umpire and coaches

Players shall not

  • Use abusive or profane language.
  • Taunt or embarrass any other player.
  • Question an umpire’s call.
  • Abuse, mistreat or mishandle any league equipment or property (e.g., throwing batting helmets)

Use “chatter” designed to distract a pitcher or batter – “chatter” should encourage your team, not belittle or distract players on the opposing team

Disciplinary Policy for Players

The Woodbridge Little League Board of Directors will review all reported incidents of behavior considered detrimental to the game. The Board will act on a simple majority vote.

  • Umpires and League Officials have the authority and discretion to penalize the offender according to the infraction, up to and including expulsion from a game to a entire season.  
  • A second season expulsion may result in a lifetime ban from all WLL activities.
  • Any player that has been ejected from a game must leave the playing field area for the rest of the game and retire to the parking lot. Any threat made by a player, parent or any other person will not be tolerated. Threats will draw a punishment up to and including a 1-year suspension from the WLL.
