Code of Conduct

Player & Parent Code of Conduct

New Richmond Baseball Club's Code of Conduct

As a youth sports program, board of directors and team of coaches, our goal is to instill our foundational values of class, trust, accountability, and resiliency into the student athletes and embody that into all that we do as a baseball program. Along with our foundational values, we will improve each athlete’s baseball skills, have an emphasis on TEAM, and most importantly have fun playing this game.

Foundational Values

CLASS – Handling yourself in every situation with respect for your teammates, opposition, and umpires no matter what.  Not making excuses, learning from past mistakes. Meeting life and the game head on, and handle whatever comes along.

TRUST – Emphasis on TEAM. Playing with confidence in your coaches and teammates.  Working with a team, embracing the experience, and having fun!

ACCOUNTABILITY – Positive attitude, concentration, and effort are what they need to bring every day, and will be held accountable for the betterment of themselves and the team.

RESILIENCY- How we handle success and how we handle failure.  Resiliency means to never quit, never tire, never give up on playing baseball the right way, and living your life the right way.

Tiger Baseball Expectations and Guidelines

1. Athletes must pay the correct athletic fee, and sign and return all necessary forms to the coaches and school before they can practice or tryout.

2. Baseball is a sport of skill. Regardless of grade or age, athletes will be CHOSEN for a team based on their ability.  The team is not final and the coaches reserve the right to change what team the athlete plays on at any time if it is the best for the program.

3. We expect each parent and player to conduct themselves in a positive manner at all times. We represent the School District of New Richmond, and the community. If you or your athlete would like to talk with any of the coaching staff regarding your son, playing time, position, batting order etc., please follow the steps we take in our program. These steps are non-negotiable.

  1. The ATHLETE, not parent or guardian, will need to meet with the coach and discuss their concerns. We believe that since the athlete is at the practice and games, they have the best idea of the situation and can come up with a solution and answer on their own.
  2. The athlete will discuss the conversation with their parent/guardian and explain what they can do or what we can do as coaches to help the concern.
  3. If your athlete is not satisfied with the solution, please call/email the coach to set up a meeting time where the player, parent, and coach will all meet at the same time, together.

*Coaches will not talk about a game or playing time after a game with parent or guardian. If a confrontation comes up, we will refer to the above steps/process.

4. If an athlete or parent is not conducting themselves in a positive manner on or off the field, or is hurting the program in anyway, such as not listening to coaches, inappropriate language, putting themselves before the team, lack of effort etc., he will be coached and encouraged to change his behavior.  If the behavior does not change he/she will be warned or asked to leave practice or game.  If actions continue the athlete will be removed from the team. The New Richmond Baseball Program believes in working hard, conducting themselves with class, and being respectful. This will always be in the fabric of what our program is about.  

DISCIPLINE POLICY

The New Richmond Baseball Club has a strict policy on following the rules on the field for the safety of all players. Expectations that all coaches and players are representing the community of New Richmond and our baseball club with a professional and positive manner at all times. To enforce these standards, the following disciplinary policy is in place:

EJECTION FROM GAME - 1ST OFFENSE
If a player is ejected from a baseball game for any reason, the player will sit out the remainder of that game plus 1 or 2 of the next scheduled games (depending on rule infraction reason). Additional 1 game - If the player was ejected for a rule infraction, they will be required to sit out the next scheduled game. Additional 2 games - If the player was ejected for a personal behavior infraction, they will be required to sit out the next two scheduled games.

EJECTION FROM GAME – 2ND OFFENSE
If a player is ejected from a baseball game for any reason and it is the players’ second offense of the season, the player will sit out the remainder of that game plus the next 2 scheduled games or be done for the remainder of the season (depending on rule infraction reason). Additional 2 games - If the player was ejected for a rule infraction, they will be required to sit out the next 2 scheduled games. If the player was ejected for second personal behavior infraction of the season, there will be a meeting with the board of directors to discuss disciplinary action (which could lead to removal from their baseball team for the remainder of the season with no refund).

PARENT MISCONDUCT FIRST OFFENSE
If a parent is ejected from a game by an official, they must leave the field and are not allowed to return for the duration of or following the game.
 
If a parent is acting inappropriate towards the players, coaches, umpires, opponents or opponent fan base, the NRBC coaching staff reserves the right to provide a verbal warning to the parent to stop their behavior. If the behavior continues, the NRBC coaching staff has the authority to eject the parent from the game and the parent is required to leave the field for the duration of and following the game.
