Clarington Baseball Association Code of Conduct for Umpires

  • I will officiate by the rules.
  • I will ensure that I am knowledgeable of the rules.
  • I will obtain proper training and continue to upgrade my officiating skills.
  • I will be objective and consistent in officiating the game regardless of my feelings toward a player, a coach or a team.
  • I will handle all conflicts firmly and with dignity.
  • I will avoid, or put an end to any situation that threatens the safety of the players.
  • I will control my temper. Personal criticism of any person by word or gesture is unacceptable.
  • I will show respect for the participants and their skills.
  • I will not permit the intimidation of any participant either by word or by action.
  • I will not tolerate unacceptable conduct toward myself, other officials, players, coaches or spectators.
  • I will refrain from profanity. Verbal abuse towards players, managers, coaches, officials or spectators will not be tolerated including emails, voice messages, text messages (as well as “tweeting”) and social network postings.
  • I will generally warn players of unacceptable behaviour before taking further action for a second offence, although I reserve the right to cite or eject a player or coach for a first offence.
