PLAYer code of Conduct

Player's agree to and sign off on the player's code of conduct during the registration process. 

As a player in the Central Okanagan Minor Baseball Association I promise to:

PLAY.

  1. Remember that baseball is an opportunity to learn and to have fun.

  2. ​Win and lose graciously, practicing and encouraging good sportsmanship with all players, coaches, umpires, officials, and parents at every game, practice and event. 

  3. Treat all players, coaches, umpires, parents, and spectators with dignity and respect, as I would like to be treated, using appropriate language and tone.

  4. Abstain from any controlled substances (alcohol, drugs etc.). I know that this is strictly prohibited by COMBA and at any COMBA event. 

HUSTLE.

  1. Always try my very best, playing for the team and not myself.

  2. Have and show a positive attitude, being personally responsible as a team player and at all events. 

  3. Attend every practice, game and team event that I am able, and giving my coach reasonable notice if I am unable to attend. 

  4. Arrive early for practices, meetings and games. 

GROW.

  1. Embody the COMBA Mission to be a community of baseball players, parents, coaches and volunteers, pursuing athletic excellence and personal development of youth in the Central Okanagan.

  2. Become the best athlete I can by practicing appropriately, trying my hardest on and off the field, and concentrating on the play of the game.

  3. Respect the integrity and judgment of the game umpires, understanding that they are doing their best to help promote the youth baseball athletes, and admire their willingness to participate in full view of the public.

  4. Learn to take correction from my coaches, peers and officials as a compliment.

Finally, I promise to abide by the BC Minor Code of Conduct (rule 13, page 47).

I have read and understand this COMBA Code of Conduct as described above. I am aware that any failure on my behalf to comply with the above may result in my temporary or permanent removal from all COMBA sponsored activities and negation of my playing privileges. I agree that all decisions in these matters made by the COMBA board of directors are final and binding.
