PLAYER CODE OF CONDUCT

Playing top-level summer collegiate baseball is a privilege. As in every aspect of life, this privilege carries many responsibilities.  The exercise of personal responsibility as a member of the TSL family is important to you as an individual in advancing your baseball career and realizing your full baseball potential and to our TSL communities, which are enriched and ennobled by the example you set as role models for our kids.  The TSL cannot attain its goals and fulfill its mission without your full cooperation and commitment to act professionally and responsibly, both on the baseball diamond and in your adopted communities.

Each player for each team in the TSL is expected to conduct himself, on the field and off the field, in a manner consistent with good behavior and in a manner that does not adversely affect his respective organization’s reputation, or the player’s own integrity, reputation and credibility.  Each player must recognize that he represents, not just his college and university, but also his summer team, his host family, his adopted summer community and the TSL, and that every action he takes will reflect upon his team and the TSL.

Without in any way limiting the generality of the foregoing statement or any specific rules and regulation otherwise promulgated by the TSL or the player’s individual team, each player shall be aware of the following principles and at all times comply with them.

–       Each player shall comply with the rules and regulations promulgated by the TSL and the individual team he plays for, both on the field and off the field.  The League Commissioner shall have responsibility, in his sole discretion, to discipline a player, to include suspension or dismissal from the team, for conduct it determines is inappropriate, violates any rules or regulations, or is contrary to the league’s expectations set forth in this statement.

–       The legal drinking age in both Virginia and North Carolina is 21 years of age, and each player is expected to obey the law.  In addition, under no circumstances shall a player, or any personnel of any TSL organization, bring alcoholic beverages on a team bus, or bring or have possession of alcoholic beverages at the playing field.  Players over 21 years of age, who have alcoholic beverages off the field, shall be expected to drink responsibility and at all times conduct themselves in a responsible manner.

–       Player who are staying in the dorms at Virginia Wesleyan College shall recognize that they are guest of VWC, and shall follow all rules and regulations as set forth by Virginia Wesleyan College with regard to living in the dormitories and with personal conduct on campus. Players are subject to expulsion from the dormitory, cancellation of the their meal plan, and expulsion from the league, with no refund of any monies paid for violation of any VWC or TSL rules and/or regulations. Further, players who will be staying with a host family shall recognize that host families make a personal and financial sacrifice to house them as part of their families, and that host families are essential to the operation and success of summer baseball.  Players shall, by their daily conduct and good behavior, honor these special people.  Players must remember that they are a guest in someone else’s home, and to always be considerate and make a special effort to abide by any requests they may make.  If a host family has young children, players must be aware of what their friendship and actions will mean to them.

.

If you affirm that you have read the player code of conduct and agree to abide by it’s terms during the 2017 summer season, please continue.
