1. All coaching staff, players and parents must remember that they represent New Lowell and must act with respect and consideration to others.
2. All spectators, coaches and players shall show good sportsmanship towards umpires and all teams, be it their own or opposing teams. Anyone displaying intolerable behaviour or using profanity could face suspension.

4. Umpires decisions are final, including young umpires who are just learning. Protests from coaches, parents and spectators will be considered intolerable behaviour. Only coaches shall ask the umpires for clarification on a call in a respectful and cordial manner.
5. We are a house league, our coaches will strive to create equal playing opportunities for all players, keeping safety in mind and ensuring that a player’s ability is neither exploited or puts any player in harms way.
6. Coaches consider practices very important. Players are expected to attend every practice. If a player cannot make it to a game or practice, the coach shall be notified.
