Parent Involvement and Volunteerism
Interested in volunteering?
The success and future direction of the league is based on all of the hardworking volunteers who are involved in the league.
We really need parents to help with our league. Just think of the satisfaction you will get from knowing that you are spending
quality time with your child during these very important years. We know that most of us lead very busy lives and it is difficult to find time,
but it is worth the effort and you will not regret it.
You can make a difference!

PARENTS CODE OF ETHICS
We must keep in mind we are an example to our children, both
on, and off the softball field. Please remember to control your emotions and actions while the
girls are playing ball. If a manager or umpire has to address behavioral actions before,
during, or after the game it may result in your child's team forfeiting the game. Arguing or
threatening anyone, harassment of an umpire,manager, coaches or players could also result in
a forfeit. Inappropriate language is not tolerated in this league and will result in a forfeit.
Thank you for your cooperation and support.

is open for any girl residing in Macomb Township or Clinton Township attending Chippewa Valley, Utica or Fraser Schools.
Once a girl is a member of the Clinton-Macomb Girls Fastpitch League, she retains eligibility for life.
