What Does COURAGE CHARACTER LOYALTY mean to you as a Little League Coach?

What Does COURAGE – CHARACTER – LOYALTY mean to you as a Little League Coach?

Did you now that the founding principles of Little League are based on three simple character traits COURAGE – CHARACTER – LOYALTY, that we as coaches are expected to instill in the young people under our leadership.

COURAGE… is providing every player with an opportunity to play and contribute to your team in the face of pressure to win.

It doesn’t take a lot of courage to pick 7-8 of your most talented and skilled players and play them every inning of every game and leave the rest of the playing time to your weaker players. It takes courage to give every

player on your team regular opportunities to start and more importantly to play complete games during the season.

CHARACTER… is stepping up to support and be positive with your players when things aren’t going well.

Any coach can look good when the team is winning and everyone is happy. Coaches, your true character shows up when a player on your team makes an error in a key situation or when the umpire makes a call that doesn’t go your way during a critical part in the ball game.

LOYALTY… is stepping up to defend and support coaching baseball the “Little League Way”.

Little League is one of the only youth sports organizations that accepts every player that walks up to the registration table in their community; regardless of their skill, ability and experience. Every player is assigned to a team with a coach, with equipment and uniforms needed to have a safe and fun experience in baseball. Loyalty to coaching the “Little League Way” causes every player on your team to be excited about continuing to play Little League next season.

You are the key.  Show your COURAGE – CHARACTER – LOYALTY as you mentor our youth.
