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”.

 

Lastly…

  • 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.
