Coaches Code of Conduct (Sarnia Braves Minor Baseball Association)

PrintCoaches Code of Conduct

I will be reasonable when scheduling games and practices, remembering that young athletes have other interests and obligations.

I will teach my athletes to play fairly and to respect the rules, officials and opponents and encourage them to be good sports.

I will remind my athletes that winning a game or a trophy isn’t the only measure of success.

I will ensure that ALL athletes get equal instruction and support.

I will not ridicule or yell at my athletes for making mistakes or for performing poorly.  I will encourage my athletes, offer constructive criticism, and maintain a positive attitude.  I will remember that athletes play to have fun and must be encouraged to have confidence in themselves. 

I will make sure that equipment and facilities are safe and match the athlete’s ages and abilities.

I will remember that children need a coach they can respect. 

I will remember to set a good example as actions speak louder than words.  I will maintain a positive attitude and I will be generous with praise and set a good example.

I will not use bad language, nor will I harass or heckle athletes, coaches, umpires, other spectators, or Club officials by way of emails, voice messages, text messages (including “tweeting”) and social network postings.

I will obtain proper training and continue to upgrade my coaching skills.

I will respect and comply with the umpires’ decisions and decisions of the Discipline Committee.
