All parents with daughters participating in the Ninjas Fastpitch Travel program or WItches Fastpitch Travel Program are expected to abide by the following Parent Code of Conduct:
I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all participants, coaches, and officials.
I will keep winning in perspective. A child usually forgets the outcome of the game: it is the adults that have a tendency to stress the win/loss record.
I will review the Players Code of Conduct with their daughter and expect them to abide by it.
I will let coaches coach and players play. I understand my role at any game or practice is strictly limited to cheering and giving encouragement and I will address concerns with a coach privately and after any game or practice.
I will strive to be a good role model for my daughter and the other Ninjas. I will encourage my daughter to learn to lose with dignity and win with grace.
I will assure that my daughter is on time for practices and games and I will communicate in advance with the coaches in the event we will be late or absent from a practice or a game. I understand that being late affects the entire team and its coaches. I also understand that my daughter’s playing time may be reduced by repeated lateness to or absence from games or practices.
I recognize the importance of volunteer coaches and I will communicate with them when necessary and support their decisions.
If I have a concern (or complaint) with respect to a coach or the program, I will either discretely and respectfully speak with the coach or will contact the player agent. No conversation with a coach relating to a complaint or concern will take place in a location where any player or other parent can hear us. Further, I will wait at least 24 hours before contacting a coach or the player agent regarding a concern related to playing time or playing positions.
Contact the organizations player agent at Please contact the player agent with any concerns or questions you may have.
Violations of the code will be addressed at the discretion of the Board of Trustees who may take such action it deems appropriate in the circumstances which in severe cases may lead to expulsion from the program.
