"Tips For Little League Parents"

Playing Little League is about Learning Sportsmanship

Win or Lose, it is all about learning
to be a good sport

Ice Cream!!! No one likes to lose, but the nature of a team sport is that one team will always lose. Teach your child that he/she didn't lose, the team lost. And they lost to a team that just happened to play better that day. There is always next time, and the important thing is to learn from the defeats. Its okay to analyze why someone lost, and how they can do better next time. It's never okay to place blame!
