Code of Conduct

PCAA asks all players, parents and coaches to demonstrate good sportsmanship and maintain a positive attitude while participating in our programs.


We believe mutual respect between players, coaches, parents and umpires forms the foundation of a fun environment for learning and friendly competition.

Swearing or foul language is prohibited during PCAA games and practices.

Umpires should NOT be spoken to beyond “small talk” unless within an official coaching or score keeping capacity.

Parents and players are prohibited from addressing the umpire in an unsportsmanlike or disrespectful manner. Failure to follow this rule will result in parents or players being ejected and removed from the sports facility.

Coaches are allowed to calmly discuss a call with an umpire who is willing to have that conversation but when possible this should happen in between innings.

Any dugout chanting or chatter should only be directed at teammates and be in the utmost positive light. Failure to follow this rule will result in that team’s forfeit and immediate cancellation of the game.

If there is an injury on the field all players should be instructed to “take a knee” until play is resumed.
