Parent, Coaches and Player Code of Conduct
As a member of the Cottage Grove Athletic Association (CGAA) Baseball program, we agree to abide by and follow the rules and guidelines listed below:
WE WILL respect the property and equipment used at any sports facility, both home and away.
WE WILL encourage good sportsmanship through our actions by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, and officials at every game or practice.
WE WILL promote the emotional and physical well-being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire to win and will remember that the game is for the athletes and not for the parents.
WE WILL refrain from the use of tobacco, alcohol, and/or drugs. Any person under the influence of these items, during any scheduled event associated with CGAA, may be asked to leave or be dismissed from the program.
WE WILL treat other players, coaches, officials, and spectators with dignity and respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex, or ability.
WE WILL NOT use profane language towards any player, coach, parent, spectator, or official.
WE WILL inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of the athlete or the safety of others.
WE WILL address any concerns directly to the head coach at a time other than game time.
WE WILL inform the coach, within a reasonable amount of time, of the athlete’s absence from a game or practice that might occur due to sickness, planned vacation, or any other reason.
Discipline will be dealt with on an individual basis by the head coach, league director, and/or president. Any violation could, depending on its severity, result in a warning, suspension, and/or dismissal from the program. CGAA Baseball reserves the right to dismiss a player/parent or coach at any time if they violate the program’s practices and procedures.
