BCC Baseball advocates the development of strong fundamental baseball skills in conjunction with an appreciation for good sportsmanship. This should be the goal of every manager in our league. When “winning” overrides these goals, we have concerns. It is for this reason that we mandate fair playing time, position changes and limits on the number of kids per team in our recreational and developmental leagues. The goal of youth sports should be to develop skills, sportsmanship, camaraderie and have fun. A coach’s greatest challenge and gratification can come from developing the less gifted players.
Baseball can play an important role in the development of our youth, teaching many of life’s lessons. In particular, how we encourage sportsmanship by our behavior as parents and coaches and how we handle its aberrations, both on and off the field impart invaluable lessons for our children throughout their lives. Although we all want the best for our children, especially the satisfaction of winning a hard fought game, it is equally important that we prepare and teach our children to lose graciously. It is for this reason that the Board of Directors developed the Parent and Spectator Code of Ethics.
