Players Code of Conduct

As set by Baseball Queensland Inc. and administered by Kul-Gunn Sporting Association Inc.

    • Play by the rules of the game at all times

 

    • Respect the Umpires. If you disagree with a non-judgment call, have your Coach or manager approach the Umpire(s during a break or after the game has finished.

 

    • Control your temper. Verbal abuse of Umpires and sledging other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviors in any sport, especially baseball.

 

    • Work equally hard for yourself and/or team. Your teams’ performance will benefit and so will yours.

 

    • Be a good sport. Appreciate all good plays whether your own team or the opposition makes them.

 

    • Co-operate with your Coach, teammates and opponents. Without them there would be no Baseball competition.

 

    • Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents and coaches.

 

    • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all players regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

 

    • Remember where you started…Give something back to the juniors below.

 

    • You are solely responsible and accountable for your actions.

 

    • All players are capable of doing one perfect thing on field at all times- Hustling.

 

    • Punctuality to training and games is a sign of dedication and personal accountability.

 

    • Although Baseball is important to you, family and education are your main priorities.

 

    • Profanity at any level at any time is unacceptable.

 

    • Respect the facility you train and play on at all times.

 

    • If you have a problem with a decision of your Coach, speak to him/her about it privately and forget all behind the back comments.

 

    • Respect the uniform you wear…by wearing it properly.

 

    • Seniors, remember the little eyes (juniors) are on you…It is a compliment but also a big responsibility.

 

    • Your on field actions speak louder than words…Lead by example.

 

    • Treat all spectators, volunteer workers and scorers with the respect they deserve…A huge amount!

 

  • Keep your physical condition to a high level…to play good you must look and feel good. Remember also, the players are the most important advertisements ANY sport has.
