For Parents: Guidelines, tips & more

Articles on player, family & coaching issues

Updated Wednesday March 7, 2018 by Stanley Park Baseball.

Our Ball Program is organized and run entirely by volunteers.  Most often these volunteers are parents (or relatives) of players.  Being involved with your child can be very rewarding or, if things don't "go right", can be really frustrating.  The articles linked below are provided to help you make this a rewarding experience for not only you but also your child and all the other participants. Main concept to remember - be the best role model you can!  (We help by banning use of tobacco and all simulations thereof at all of our events.) Hopefully you'll find the information useful and use it to advantage - and become a true  "team member"..

Here's the link to PrevNet, a Canadian network with a mission to stop bullying in Canada and to promote safe and healthy relationships for all Canadian children and youth. 

Ideas on how you might help your team? refer to Volunteer Roles and the articles below.
