Where possible, the league will attempt to fulfill any reciprocal friend/sibling requests made by a player after the player has registered and paid. To ensure team parity within divisions, same team requests will not be guaranteed.
A reciprocal friend/sibling request is when two players from the same division request each other as their friend/sibling request. For example, Jimmy Smith requests John Robert AND John Robert requests Jimmy Smith. In order for a friend request to be considered:
-Each player MUST complete a same team request form (reciprocal).
-Friend/Sibling requests must be received by April 1, 2019.
-Each player must be registered in the same divisions (some exceptions for siblings)
-Each player must be fully paid
-Only one friend/sibling request is permitted per player
There are a number of ways that parents/guardians/grandparents can support their childs' volunteer coaches. These include the following:
- Follow the codes of conduct outlined in the handbook and avoid all aggressive/bullying behaviour towards coaches, players and umpires.
- Responsible for keeping track of pitch counts during games (10U divisions and over).
- Responsible for keeping score during games.
- Serving as a team trainer to support any player or spectator injuries (may include supporting the completing of Reporting Injury Form).
- Report any bullying/aggressive behaviour to the division convenor.
Please consider letting your coach know the ways that you can support them and the team throughout the season.
Any reported incidents of coaches, parents or spectators bullying or showing aggressive behaviour toward coaches, players or umpires (not following the codes of conduct outlined in the Handbook) are reviewed by the KWHLB Discipline Committee who reviews all cases to determine if any disciplinary action is required. Disciplinary action may include a warning, or game(s), season or league suspensions. Additional details are provided in the Handbook.
