Sportsmanship & Foul Language at Quito

Quito families - 

This message is forwarded on from our League President to all Quito managers that he asked be shared with our families as well. We want you to know we will not tolerate poor sportsmanship and especially foul language from players, fans/spectators or managers/coaches in our league. The Quito parent handbook states:

  • 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. 

Please reach out to  if you have any questions or concerns.

Hi Quito managers  - 

As we settle into the season, I’d like to make sure as managers and leaders within Quito we are all on the same page about foul language, sportsmanship and character. There have been several incidents reported so far this year about foul language & taunting from coaches, players & parents that we need to address immediately.

First, the players. I have personally witnessed several occasions during and between games of foul language by a player(s). I even issued a warning while I was umpiring a game against a player for swearing during a game which I’ve never had to do before. During games you as managers and coaches are responsible for the conduct of your players. During your games and practices this week, please take a few minutes to clearly re-iterate this with your players and make it absolutely clear that the use of foul language and taunting are not allowed and could result in them being removed from a game or games. I will also be talking to our UIC to make sure the umpires working our games are aware of this and take appropriate action to maintain a positive atmosphere and respect for the game.

Second, parents/spectators. There have been several complaints about parents either taunting from the bleachers and/or using foul language. As managers, you are responsible for your parents and fans also. Please take time to speak with them also about the policy that Quito has in the parent handbook (link) and rules they are bound by:

  • 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. 

I would highly recommend you communicate those rules back out to your parents and let them know the consequences including the fact the umpire has absolute authority to ask a spectator (or player) to leave the fields or halt a game all together. Don’t let your teams be penalized by poor parent behavior!

Use of profanity – Members shall not use profanity directed to or overheard by other members or spectators. Such misconduct when confirmed by the Board of Directors will result in the following penalties for the offender:

First offense – Written warning from QLL

Second offense – One week suspension from all league activities 

Third offense – Subsequent hearing for discipline with the Board of Directors 

Finally, you and your coaches. Again, there have been complaints already here against coaches/managers which I find the most discouraging. As managers within Quito and Little League, we are all held to a higher standard and should strive for that. Kids look up to us and we have a huge responsibility to project a positive example of what it means to be a baseball player and coach. Bringing yourself down by using foul language or unsportsmanlike conduct in front our players & families reflects poorly upon you, your fellow managers, us and as a league. 

Please consider this your “pre warning”. Any additional problems with managers or coaches in this area will be dealt with swiftly and forcefully as outlined in our local rules (link) and parent/player handbook (link) similar to above for parents.

I don’t think it needs to be said, but there are small children as young as 4 and 5 on the fields, including our own kids. We’re supposed to be building up kids as leaders and instilling a love and respect for the game. That includes the “right” way to play baseball on and off the field so let’s work on building up the positives on and off the field!

If you have any questions please reach out to me directly with your concerns. Let’s focus on playing baseball and hopefully put this behind us!

Thanks,

Dan

Pitch-Hit-Run Competition Fundraiser

Hi Quito Families,

We are excited to streamline our Pitch-Hit-Run competition fundraiser by going online.

The competition format is slightly different this year with the addition of pitching and running, but the goal is the same - to raise funds for the league!

In the coming days, you will receive an email with a link to your player's pledge page. You do not need to login or change anything. Simply make a donation for whatever you can, and share your player's link with friends and family. We are shooting for 100% participation so no amount is too small. 

If you do not receive the email for whatever reason, simply search and find your player's online pledge page here: https://99pledges.com/fund/quitoll

 

Here is a sample sharing text:

NAME is participating in a baseball fundraiser, and would love your support. If you'd like to donate, you can do so online at the following link: YOUR PLEDGE PAGE URL

 

Thanks for your support!

  • Each division champion and the player who raises the most money will receive a prize.

FESTIVAL TICKETS WILL BE ON SALE SOON THROUGH THE QLL WEBSITE
