RESPECT: Expect it and demand it from your players!

Championship baseball coaches demand the respect of all persons in their program. All players, coaches, and staff members must show that respect when addressing and responding to the coach.
Players are expected to say, “Yes, Sir” and “No, Sir” when a question is asked.

Championship coaches do not expect or accept unmerited responses from players and staff. No excuses are accepted.
This respect must be shown to all coaches regardless of the level of experience, years of service, or level of achievement. Great baseball coaches know that players will not perform for a coach that they do not respect. Respect for authority is one of the pillars which championship programs are built.

Here are a few examples of how I expect my players to show their respect for coaches:
· Answering and responding to coaching instructions with dignity and respect.
· Hustling at all times.
· Dressing properly on and off the field.
· Attending class and maintaining good standing with teachers and instructors.
· Keeping the dugout neat and clean.
· Keeping your locker neat and clean.
· Never walking on the field during a practice or game.
· Looking the coach in the eyes when the coach is speaking to you.
· Being quiet and attentive during team meetings.
· Removing your cap during team meals.Blessing the food before team meals.

Good Luck till Next Time, Nick
