Little League of Somerville

Parents

Thank you for having your child participate in Somerville Little League (SLL) — or at least exploring the possibility. (By the way, we hope you'll take a moment to check out our volunteer opportunities.)

SLL seeks to enhance players' baseball skills and instill a love of the game. But our primary objective goes beyond baseball: implanting firmly in the children of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority so they become well-adjusted, stronger and happier children and good, decent and trustworthy citizens.

For that reason, it's important for parents of SLL players — coaches and spectators alike — to set a good example. Below are several key excerpts from the official Little League Code of Conduct for Parents (which you can download on this page). Please keep these in mind if you're an SLL parent …

  • Any parent guilty of improper conduct at any game or practice will be asked to leave the sports facility and be suspended from the following game. Repeat violations may cause a multiple game suspension, or the season forfeiture of the privilege of attending all games.
  • I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for youth, not adults.
  • I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials and spectators at every game, practice or other sporting event.
  • I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.
  • I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.
