Manager / Coach Responsibilities 

Little League managers and coaches must be leaders. All must recognize that they hold a position of trust and responsibility in a program that deals with a sensitive and formative period of a child’s development.

It is required that managers and coaches have understanding, patience and the capacity to work with children. Managers and coaches should be able to inspire respect. Above all else, managers and coaches must realize that they are helping to shape the physical, mental and emotional development of young people.

The Little League manager must be something more than just a teacher. Knowledge of the game is essential but it is not the only badge of a Little League coach or manager.  Managers and coaches must be adults who are sensitive to the mental and physical limitations of players and who recognize that the game is a vehicle of training and enjoyment, not an end in itself.

Anyone interested in being a Shaw Butte Little League manager or coach should contact our Coaching Coordinator and be willing to undergo a screening process that will include a background check, as well as interviews with our Coaching Committee.

Who is responsible for the conduct of the manager and coach?
First and foremost, it is the manager or coach themselves.
Each of us in Little League must take responsibility for our own actions.

However, as the chief administrator, the president selects and appoints the managers and coaches. As such, no person becomes a manager or coach without the approval of the president. All appointments are subject to final approval by SBLL's Board.

Only the SBLL Board has the authority to remove or suspend a manager or coach. If a parent or anyone else is dissatisfied with a manager or coach, they must present the issue to the League Player Agent, who will work to resolve any issues or bring it to the SBLL Board for potential disciplinary action.

Code of Ethics 

I hear by pledge to live up to the privilege and honor of being selected as a Shaw Butte Little League coach by following the Coaches Code of Ethics:

  • I will place the emotional and physical well-being of my players ahead of a personal desire to win.
  • I will treat each player as an individual, remembering the large range of emotional and physical development for the same age group.
  • I will do my best to provide a safe playing situation for my players.
  • I promise to take time to organize practices that are fun and challenging for all my players.
  • I will lead by example in demonstrating fair play and sportsmanship to all my players.
  • I will make the effort to learn the rules of Little League Baseball and teach them to my players.
  • I will educate myself on the latest coaching techniques appropriate to the age group I coach and present them to my players in a positive manner.
  • I will demand that my players never criticize their own teammates or intentionally embarrass or humiliate players of the opposing team.
  • I will provide a sports environment for my players that emphasizes teamwork over individual recognition.
  • I will maintain a team atmosphere that is free of drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and will refrain from their use at all youth-included Little League events.
  • I will remember that I am a youth sports coach and that the game is for the children, not adults.
