Roles

  • Coaches = Coach
  • Players = Play
  • Parents = Cheer enthusiastically, unconditionally, and universally

Behavior

Game Day

  • The coaches are expected to coach the game consistent with the expectation of a “Double Goal Coach.”
  • The players are expected to listen, hustle, try their best at all times, and exude sportsmanship.
  • The parents are expected to cheer. It is expected that the parents will allow the coaches to coach and the players to play, without parental influence.  Cheer for good plays and great effort, for both the “home” team and the opponents.
  • It is expected that the parents keep away from the dugout and backstop while the game is being played.
  • The 48 hour rule will be enforced.  If a parent has a question or comment about the game, the parent must wait a minimum of 48 hours before contacting the coach.
