NBLL Announces PCA Partnership

The 25th season of NBLL is finally upon us, opening weekend is here!

Lead by President Cord McCormick, your NBLL Board of Directors is dedicated to make NBLL the very best youth sports organization. We have partnered with Positive Coaching Alliance to help parents, coaches, athletes and our leaders work together to make Better Athletes, Better People. After many hours discussing the culture we strive to achieve, we have created a collection of values which will be the foundation of NBLL. 

Tonight, our team managers will be attending a presentation and special workshop by the Positive Coaching Alliance. They will receive a hand out to share with every NBLL family, including a copy of our values. Our mission is to ensure these values become the fabric of our culture and are a constant reminder of the impact we can all have on our children.

:: North Bothell Little League Values ::

Champion Positivity 
We believe that the best motivator is a positive environment. Effort and learning are praised and overwhelm constructive criticism.  Players are encouraged to tell teammates when they see them do something well, when they see someone improve, and to listen when they have ideas to share.

Show Respect and Sportsmanship 
We model and teach respect for Rules, Opponents, Officials, Teammates, and our Self (ROOTS). All actions from our volunteers, parents, and family members will honor the game above the results on the scoreboard.

Embrace Learning 
Development reaches its peak when players are assured that mistakes are OK. They will feel free to pursue mastery when effort and learning take priority over results.

Build Community 
Strong relationships can form life-time bonds and community is a path to strength. Relationships are put ahead of winning and participants are asked to resolve conflicts with respect and dignity.

Encourage Mastery and Competition 
Our coaches and players compete with others in a way that brings out the best in us and everyone involved. Our teams compete to win and accept the outcome with grace. Coaches teach fundamentals as the foundation for mastery; catered to age and experience of the player.

We are proud of our community and hope every member can continue to honor these values with integrity, on and off the diamond.
 
See you at the ballpark!
