Parents Code of Conduct
As set by Baseball Queensland Inc. and administered by Kul-Gunn Sporting Association Inc.
- Remember that children participate in sport for their enjoyment, not yours.
- Encourage children to participate, do not force them.
- Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
- Encourage children always to play according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility or violence.
- Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a competition.
- Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skillful plays by all participants.
- Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.
- Respect officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise.
- Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate.
- Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
- If you have a concern with a Coach or Administrator, rather than fester it, please communicate it.
- It is important during trips away that parents allow their children the opportunity of “spreading their wings”
- Parents should never discuss what they feel best for their child on field, unless they first have discussed it with the coach.
- It is important for parents to support BQI in relation to all off field training and development programs.
- Parents need to support BQI’s motto: “Development of young people is more important than the development of young base ballers.”
- Encourage your child’s Coach (es) at all possible times. That small pat on the back “Goes a long way”.
- Be understanding and have the willingness to communicate with the management of Kul-Gunn Baseball Academy on any of your issues. We care and are always open to suggestion. Lets all get better together.
