Code of Conduct

Oregon Junior Baseball Code of Conduct:

1. First and foremost, Be positive and have fun!

2. Coaches have ultimate responsibility for their conduct, the conduct of their assistants,
players, and spectators.

3. Accept the decisions of officials without exhibiting inappropriate behavior.

4. Place the emotional and physical well being of your players ahead of any personal desire
to win. Want to win and strive to win, but don’t “win at all costs”. Seek to achieve
excellence.

these rules to your players. Develop the total individual not just the athlete.

development for the same age group.
