As a general philosophy, Sunnyvale Little League is
intended to provide a safe and fun environment for children to learn and play
the game of baseball. Managers and coaches serve as mentors to our player
community and have the responsibility to provide instruction which will advance
the playing skills of our players. Coaching is not intended to be convenient
form of babysitting for parents, so we expect our players to take advantage of
the comittments that our coaches make to the league.
While we don't
expect our coaches to be experts in the game of baseball, we do encourage them
to take advantage of the training opportunities that the league makes available
to our coaches.
The perfect little league coach will: LEAD, MENTOR,
TEACH, MOTIVATE, INSPIRE, CONSOLE
Our league strives to offer a fun,
instructional and inclusive environment for our player, coaches, umpires,
families and guests. As such we have crafted a Code of Coduct, which we expect all to adhere to.
