Red's Expectations for Coaches, Parents and Players

Both parenting and coaching are rewarding but sometimes challenging vocations.
By establishing an understanding of each role, we are better able to accept the actions
of the other and provide greater benefit to our athletes.
EXPECTATIONS OF OUR COACHES

-To communicate with parents and coaches before the start of the season the following topics in order to promote and        understanding of the direction of the program as well as the team:

~  Reds Philosophy

~  Codes of Conduct

~  Practice Expectations

~  Game Expectations

~  Expectations for Injured Players

-To be role models who teach and promote good sportsmanship and respect for the game of baseball

-To help players set idealistic and realistic goals for team and individual performance

-To enforce Codes of Conduct, team, and player rules

-To stress team unity, hard work, dedication, and cooperation (212˚)

-To work cooperatively with other members of the coaching staff and support the entire Reds Organization

-To be professional in making decisions based on the best interest of the athletes that make up the team

EXPECTATIONS OF OUR ATHLETES

- Leave it all out on the field, every game, practice, workout. We as a program demand your best effort at all times.

EXPECTATIONS OF OUR PARENTS

-To display positive support for the athletes, coaches, and Reds Baseball administration---NOTHING erodes teamwork faster than parents and/or athletes doubting the capabilities of their coaches.​

-To notify coaches in the event of an absence for any reason
-To demonstrate positive behavior and sportsmanship as fans

-To work with the coach to maintain open communication

It is important to realize that athletics at this level can provide some of the most rewarding moments in a player’s life. It is equally important to understand that there may be times when things don’t go the way a parent or a child wishes. Coaches will make decisions based on what they see, know, and believe to be best for the team and for each of the athletes involved.  Keep in mind that is the goal of the Reds to develop players that are successful not only in baseball but in life.
