Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct for the Parents, Players, Coaches and Administrators of the Carolina Baseball Club and Carolina Blue Sox Baseball Teams


The Carolina Baseball Club (“CBC”) believes that athletic competition should demonstrate high standards of ethics and sportsmanship and promote the development of good character and other important life skills.  We also believe that the highest potential of sports is achieved when participants, parents, spectators and coaches are committed to pursuing victory with honor.  Participation on a Carolina Blue Sox Baseball team is a privilege, not a right, and all players, coaches and parents are expected to represent their team and the Carolina Baseball Club with honor, on and off the field.  As such, the CBC has adopted the following six core principles: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship.[1]


  • We will act honorably and will not engage in any dishonest or unsportsmanlike behavior.

  • We will be reliable and honor our commitments, both to team and community. 

  • We will be loyal to our coaches, teammates and organization.


  • We will treat others with respect.

  • We will not use profanity, obscene gestures, offensive remarks, taunting, boastful celebrations, or other actions that demean individuals or the sport of baseball.
  • We will not threaten or intentionally injure anyone.
  • We will be tolerant of differences, including decisions by game and tournament officials.
  • We will not interfere with decisions by coaches in regards to playing time, player position and other competition decisions.  We will allow the coaches to coach the game and will not interfere with their ability to do so.
  • We will discuss any differences in regards to playing time and player position at an appropriate time and in a discrete manner.  All discussions in regards to differences will be handled with civility.
  • We will respect our team and organization.
  • We will respect team rules.
  • We will be gracious in victory and dignified in defeat.


  • We will do our best to make team practices and tournaments.

  • We will be accountable for our actions.

  • We will accept the fact that we are a team and understand that we have a responsibility to ensure that the entire team behaves in a responsible manner.  Poor behavior by any team member, coach or parent reflects poorly on us, the team and the organization.


  • We will play by the rules and will not intentionally break the rules for any reason.

  • We will allow others to express their points of view.

  • We will not bully or unjustly impose our will on others.

  • We will not unjustly blame others.


  • We will encourage all players regardless of their performance.

  • We will never encourage the injury of any player, officials or fellow spectator.

  • We will consider the needs of all members of the team and not just our own needs or the needs of a particular player.



  • We will act as a responsible member of the team and organization.
  • We will take pride in our team and organization.
  • We will respect the game of baseball, its tradition, and its rules.
  • We will respect the facilities and equipment.
