2020 Little League Season
by posted 04/23/2020

Dear Members of Woburn Little League,

The Board of Directors hopes this email finds all members of the WLL family safe and healthy. 

The board has had a number of Zoom meetings since mid-March preparing for the 2020 season, unfortunately, with Governor Bakers recent decision regarding schools the uncertainty of the current environment we are all living through, and in fairness to all of our WLL members, we write to you today with the inevitable decision to CANCEL the 2020 SPRING SEASON. Our number one priority is and always will be the safety of the WLL family as we continue to deal with the COVID-19 situation.  

Woburn Little League will absolutely REFUND everyone’s registration in the way that the registration was paid to the WLL. These refunds will happen over the next week or two. (example; if you paid by credit card your credit card will be refunded)

With all that said, the board will continue to discuss the possibility of having some sort of organized baseball/softball summer and/or fall season.  This is all depended upon the guidance of Local and State Health experts, Little League International and Little League District 13. We will communicate all new developments to you as soon as there is something to report or share.

We, as a board, appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation, and as previously communicated to you, ALL Woburn fields are still closed and all Little League activities are still not allowed.  We ask everyone to continue to follow all the appropriate guidelines that have been outlined for ALL of us in order to stay safe and healthy. Keep up the great work with social distancing and remember to wash your hands.

Thank you again, and of course if you have any questions, please email us at info@woburnlittleleague.org

Stay safe everyone,

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.
