Welcome to LTJBSA!

Welcome to LTJBSA!



The Lawrence Township Junior Baseball Softball Association Unified Code of Conduct establishes a foundation for the behavior we expect from players, parents, coaches, spectators, and guests associated with our organization. Participation or attendance at LTJBSA organized events is a privilege and not a right. This privilege is predicated upon acting in accord with this Code.

All players, parents, coaches, spectators, and guests must act as a positive role model while involved in an LTJBSA event.

  • Demonstrate supportive, respectful and compassionate behaviors throughout the duration of the program/event.
  • Learn, respect, and follow the rules of the game. Motivate players to compete according to the rules at all times. 
  • Teach players that doing one’s best and achieving personal goals far outweighs winning.
  • Give all players the opportunity to improve their skills, gain confidence and develop self esteem.
  • Show respect for the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
  • Show respect for the facilities and equipment provided.

All players, parents, coaches, spectators, and guests must ensure the safety and physical well-being of all involved in an LTJBSA event.

  • Follow all safety rules, such as wearing batting helmets, pitch count rules, and weather safety protocols. Act in the best interest of health and longevity regardless of the situation.
  • Take active responsibility for your safety. Be alert to prevent accidents and other avoidable situations.
  • Respect dugouts and the playing field as private areas for players, coaches and umpires only.
  • Respect LTJBSA facilities and events as solicitation and recruitment free areas.  Do not approach any participant or attendee with an offer, printed flyer, request for contact information, or other means of distributing information about your service or product, including other sports teams or opportunities.
  • Refrain from using any LTJBSA-provided data, documents, or information in a manner other than it was originally intended.
  • Refrain from sexual harassment by making unwelcome advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature where such conduct creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment.
  • Refrain from any behavior that utilizes the influence of an adult’s position as coach, official or administrator to encourage sexual relations with a minor.
  • Refrain from the consumption and/or possession of alcohol, tobacco, e-cigarettes and/or any other illicit or mind-altering substances at any time immediately before, during, or immediately after an LTJBSA event.
  • Ensure no player is left unattended during a game or practice. 

All players, parents, coaches, spectators, and guests must exhibit positive sportsmanship and appropriate conduct during gameplay.

  • Create an atmosphere where all fellow players, parents, coaches, and spectators can be comfortable.
  • Treat all present on the field with respect, win or lose. Shake hands with all players and coaches on the opposing team at the conclusion of the game.
  • Promote cooperation amongst teammates, opponents, and officials. Without them, there would be no competition.
  • Respect the volunteer coach’s authority and role within the program or activity, and support their decisions, including ones that may not favor your child. If there is a disagreement or a concern, a constructive discussion must take place at a mutually agreed time and place and not in front of any player.
  • Respect the umpires and trust their integrity. Refrain from questioning their decisions in a disrespectful or abusive manner. If there is a disagreement or a concern, a constructive discussion must take place at a mutually agreed time and place and not in front of any player. 
  • Engage in respectful conduct which excludes profanity, ridiculing, taunting, negative or obscene gestures, offensive remarks (including those of a sexual nature), trash talking, and boastful celebrations.
  • Refrain from engaging, endorsing, or condoning violence or aggression. Any physical or verbal altercation will not be tolerated and offending parties will be immediately ejected and banned from attending future LTJBSA events.

The Lawrence Township Junior Baseball Softball Association Board of Trustees retains the sole authority to determine what, if any, disciplinary action is appropriate for any conduct infraction.
