Conduct Toward Umpires
It is never acceptable to verbally abuse an umpire. The Umpire-in-Chief welcomes any constructive comments on umpires. Any criticism or critique relating to the performance of a youth umpire should only be communicated to the youth umpire by the Umpire-in-Chief.
Youth umpires are vital to Jericho Little League. Our policies on providing a safe, fair, and fun environment for players also apply to our umpires. Only positive, instructive, and encouraging comments are allowed to be directed at umpires. We must remember that just as youth players will make mistakes during play, umpires will also make mistakes in officiating, particularly in the younger divisions where they are learning how to umpire.
Violators of this policy are subject to disciplinary measures up to and including suspensions from games or expulsion from Jerico Little League.
