Recreation League Purpose / Objectives League

Windsor Parks and Recreation Baseball (U6-U12)

Purpose:

The purpose of the league is to provide your child with an opportunity to learn, grow, develop skills, meet new friends, and also experience the excitement and fun associated with participation in youth sports.

Volunteers:

Volunteer Coaches are held to a high standard and are registered through the Windsor Parks and Recreation Department. The league trains coaches through the (NYSCA) National Youth Sports Coach Association. By virtue of the NYSCA training and certification program coaches are trained in their responsibilities of youth sports and are required to pass a background check, complete an insurance liability form and sign a Coaches’ Code of Ethic Pledge. Coaches’ are reminded that in youth sport the consideration of the children should be placed above all and that as a NYSCA volunteer coach they are held accountable to a Code of Conduct. Parent Volunteers (non-coaches) are also very important to the success of the league. Parents are encouraged to help during practice and games, organize snack lists, and help support the team in many different ways. Since parent volunteers do not complete a background check they are never put in charge of coaching the youth, nor are they left in charge of or alone with, any youth or group of youths.

Intent:

The driving factor for all participants, including coaches and parents should be the enjoyment of the game. The league follows the (PAYS) Parent Association of Youth Sports philosophy which is a combination of education, motivation and positive reinforcement that are essential to making the child’s experience one to remember.

Playing time: One way to keep the game fun is making sure players get equal playing time no matter their skill level. Playing time should be equal for all players attending regular practice. Players not starting defensive positions should be at top of batting order. All players should get an opportunity to play both infield and outfield positions. Assessments: U8 – U12 players will be assessed on throwing, hitting, running, pitching, and catching. Staff and coaches will then place players on teams in hopes for equal competition. Make- ups:

When a game is cancelled Windsor P&R will do everything it can to reschedule the game. The rescheduled game could occur on a Saturday.
