Discipline Procedure

Discipline Procedure

The Laurel Little League Board of Directors retains the sole authority to determine what, if any, disciplinary action is appropriate for any conduct infraction.    The goal of all disciplinary actions is to permanently correct the misconduct and to maintain the integrity and good standing of Laurel Little League.



Reports of violations of the Code of Conduct should be submitted in writing to the Discipline Committee.  The Discipline Committee may also find it necessary to intercede without invitation in any situation that it feels is not being addressed or handled properly.  It is suggested that all ejections be reviewed by the Discipline Committee.

·         VP of Baseball or Softball

·         Player Agent

·         Umpire in Chief

·         Majors Coordinator (optional)

·         Safety Officer (optional)

If a conflict of interest or other situation that makes one of these people unavailable arises, another board member may take their place, with emphasis on experience and understanding of Little League rules as the most important factor.

The Discipline Committee will be responsible for the following:

·         Provide clear feedback to the subject of discipline on what part of the code of conduct was not followed.

·         Clearly communicate the potential consequences of these actions to accused.

·         Gather statements from all relevant parties involved (coaches, umpires, players, parents, etc.)
