Our captains are the team leaders and they set the example for other team members. We ask our captains to communicate with their players to find out what they like and don’t like. Be organized - the batting order, and line-up should be done before the game. The home team has to set up the diamond so enlist help from team members wherever possible. Example - equipment handling, score keeping, coaching the bases. Players - please volunteer your help to the team captains - make their jobs easier!
Encourage sponsor support
Support league Rules and Umpires
Keep in touch with the executive and provide any feedback to them from your team.
Attend all Captains’ Meetings. If you are unable to attend, ensure a designate represents your team at the meeting.
Enforce the no Alcohol Rule at the Parks at all times or our league will be shut down.
I am committed to the belief that the opportunity for the players to play is more important than the opportunity to win.
I will visibly demonstrate that the respect for our umpires, (through good calls and bad) is paramount to enjoying the League’s camaraderie.
I will give honest effort, hearty encouragement at all times, while accepting miscues as unfortunate happenings.
I will deal with what I judge to be “not heads-up ball” privately between innings and not publicly on the field.
I will assign defensive players to their position and will not reassign or substitute them away from an expected play.
I will ensure that all offensive players contribute at their skill level and will not substitute them in pursuit of winning.
I will encourage all players to increase participation in the League by explaining the various opportunities – volunteering for League events, attending the AGM, becoming a Captain or Board member.
I will demonstrate respect to my opposition and my actions will support the league’s “Fun and Fellowship” beliefs
