Moorpark Little League Code of Conduct
The Board of Directors of Moorpark Little League has adopted a ZERO Tolerance policy in regards to ANYONE present at an MPLL event, whether on the field or off. Our main desire in making this decision is to ensure that all league events remain safe and pleasant for all people attending.
The term "Zero Tolerance" encompasses a wide range of actions or verbiage directed from one person to another, or to a group of people. This includes, but is not limited to:
Making derogatory comments about umpire calls or making defaming statements to the umpires themselves.
Making derogatory comments about any coaches ability to coach, or the decisions they make concerning the players on their teams.
Making derogatory comments to any player, on the field or off, for any reason.
Any negative remark made from one spectator to another.
Any of the above actions will result in removal from the game you are attending and a suspension from the next game. You will also be asked to leave the field, which includes getting into your vehicle and leaving the premises completely. Any subsequent infraction will result in a two game suspension. If the abusive behavior occurs a third time, the person may be permanently removed from the league, pending review by the Board of Directors.
Any person threatening another person at an MPLL event will be immediately asked to leave, and will be suspended for a minimum of two games. Any occurrence after this will result in a permanent removal from MPLL.
Any person assaulting: ie; hitting, kicking, pushing, shoving, which results in bodily injury will be permanently removed from MPLL. In this case the police will be called and charges may be filed. Any person hitting, kicking, pushing, or shoving which does not result in bodily injury will be brought before the Board of Directors, where a decision about that person's future in the league will be determined.
Moorpark Little League is dedicated to providing a safe and fun atmosphere for the children that are participating in league events. We are also dedicated to ensuring the safety of the league officials and volunteers at the games, as well as the spectators that are present.
If you bring friends and relatives to league events, we are asking that you inform them of league policy concerning acceptable behavior at league events BEFORE you arrive at the fields.
