Divide Little League

Parents' Corner

Welcome!

Parent Participation

Many responsibilities exist beyond the normal team level commitments that help the Divide Little League function smoothly. Parents are what make the program a quality experience for all our children. Our League can only be as good as we, the parents, make it.  Volunteer where you can.



Parent Support

Parent support during both games and practices is critically important to the success of the league.  Be supportive of the team by ensuring your child attends each practice on-time.  Be a positive role model during games, whether you are a manager, an assistant coach, or simply a spectator.  Finally, please keep the following in mind:
 
  • Always be positive and enthusiastic.
  • Show your child positive reinforcement.
  • Observe practices and games to learn proper techniques to practice with your child.
  • Encourage your child toward skill improvement and good sportsmanship in every game.
  • Teach your child to always play by the rules.
  • Teach your child that hard work and an honest effort are often more important than a victory.
  • Applaud good plays by your team and by members of the opposing team.
  • Let the managers and coaches do the coaching.
  • Let an umpire be the umpire.   Recognize that the umpire is the closest to the play and that each umpire will "call them as they see them".

Injury Prevention

  • Make sure that all team equipment has been inspected by a Little League official to ensure that it is functioning properly.
  • Make sure that children do not climb on fences surrounding the playing fields.
  • Check playing fields before games and practices for holes, large rocks or sticks, and anything else that may cause interference for players.
  • Make sure that players warm up and stretch before practices and games.
  • Make sure that your child drinks plenty of fluids not only while playing, but also throughout the day before practices and games.
  • Treat minor injuries with RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.
  • Post warning signs in foul ball areas.
  • Enforce bike helmet laws if children are riding to/from playing facilities.
  • Be sure that you have enough seatbelts for everyone in the vehicle when you are transporting players.
  • Watch for signs of heat exhaustion when playing in extreme heat.
  • Schedule practices before noon or in the evening to avoid the hottest hours of the day.
  • Schedule multiple drink breaks during practices and games.
