Covid 19 reminder
by posted 08/05/2020


Hello WLL members,

This is a friendly reminder, we ALL need to do our best to follow the COVID-19 guidelines that were sent out previously and is again attached to this email.

We are currently in our 3rd week with 2 weeks remaining in this not so normal season. As a group we are doing ok following the guidelines but like anything else we can always do better but if we get lazy and these guidelines aren’t followed the league will have no choice but to cancel the remaining of the season and we don’t want to do this, we want the kids to play ball.

These guidelines were put in place with help from the State and Little League International and it is to help us prevent the spread of the virus.

Below are some helpful reminders but please read the guidelines attached again;

  • Parents should have a face covering on at all times, if for some reason they don’t they need to practice social distancing.  Parents should not be sitting next to the player designated areas especially when they don’t have a mask on.

  • Players should be in the designated areas ONLY and ARE REQUIRED to wear a face covering at all times.

  • A player should not come to a game when he or she isn’t feeling well, if they do come to a game sick they will be sent home. No player should come to a game or practice if someone in their house has been in contact with someone that has symptoms or has been tested positive for the virus.

  • Coaches are required to wear a face covering at all time, NO EXCEPTIONS and this means over the mouth and nose.

  • please do not throw your face coverings, gloves on the ground at the ballparks.

The league's number one priority is to keep EVERYONE as safe as possible and at the same time allow the kids to play some baseball and softball so THANK YOU for your understanding and cooperation.

For more info on the guidelines the league has added a new COVID tab to the website that includes all of the information.

Thank you again,

Woburn Little League Board Of Directors

Code of Conduct
by posted 05/13/2015

Woburn Little League has implemented the following Parent Code of Conduct for the important message it holds about the proper role of parents in supporting their child in sports. Parents should read, understand and sign this form prior to their children participating in our league.

Any parent guilty of improper conduct at any game or practice will be asked to leave the facility and be suspended from the following game. Repeat violations may cause a multiple game suspension, or the season forfeiture of the privilege of attending all games.

Preamble

The essential elements of character-building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles:

  • Trustworthiness

  • Respect

  • Responsibility

  • Fairness

  • Caring, and

  • Good Citizenship The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects these “six pillars of character.”

    I therefore agree:

  • I will not force my child to participate in sports.

  • I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for youth, not adults.

  • I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.

  • I will learn the rules of the game and policies of the league.

  • I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials and spectators at every game, practice or other sporting event.

  • I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures.

7. I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well being of the athletes.

8. I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.

9. I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials and spectators with respect regardless of race, creed, color, sex or ability.

10. I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more important than winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game or his/her performance.

11. I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.

12. I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other participants for making a mistake or losing a competition.

13. I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child over winning. I will also de-emphasize games and competitions in the lower age groups.

14. I will promote the emotional and physical well- being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for my child to win.

15. I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss, or confront coaches at the game field, and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.

16. I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and I will refrain from their use at all sports events.

17. I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during games and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of the team.
