Coaching a youth sport program such as Little League Baseball is a privilege that is not to be taken for granted. As a coach, appointed by the Canastota Little League Board of Directors, you have an important role in the development of the youth in the community. We strive to teach each child the positive values of good sportsmanship, fair play and teamwork – values they can use throughout their lives. In order to ensure each coach is acting in the best interest of the children and Little League Baseball, a Code of Conduct for Coaches should be adhered to for interactions with players, parents, fans, coaches, and umpires.
