Parents Page

We must all constantly support and encourage fair play, player safety and sportsmanship. Parents are required to follow the Northwest Bakersfield Baseball (NWBB) Code of Conduct.
Code of Conduct for Parents and Guardians:
  • I will always be supportive of my child, their teammates and coaches.
  • I will remember that every player on the team is a contributing player.
  • I will spread my encouragement equitably amongst the team.
  • I will allow all coaching during the games to be done by the coaches and not by parents, in the stands or behind the backstop.
  • I will convey coaching suggestions and complaints privately to the coaches before or after games.
  • I will never badger the other team or argue with their supporters.
  • I will not question the umpires’ judgment.
  • I will demand a sport’s environment for my child that is free of drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and will refrain from their use at all NWBB events. (Smoking is not allowed on fields or surrounding areas.  Smoking is only permitted in the parking lot)
  • I will support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from my child’s sporting activities. Physical violence, taunting, or any action that may provoke physical violence, by anyone during a NWBB function, will be sufficient cause for the Board to exclude that person(s) from future participation or attendance at any NWBB game or activity.
  • I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, and umpires at every game, practice, or other NWBB events.
  • I will be responsible for the actions of my guests.
  • I will stay out of the dugout.
  • I will support the team and League by volunteering my services.
Parents who violate these rules may be disciplined at the game (told to leave) and/or required to appear before the NWBB Board of Directors. Violations may result in a variety of consequences, including parental bans from games or other league activities. Managers are responsible for their players and for controlling their stands. Disruptive parents who do not follow coaches, umpires or Board Members instructions may cause the Manager to be suspended or the umpire may cancel the game.

When you register, if for any reason you reconsider, we will refund your fees.  The total amount of the refund however will be based on the request.  Since the League, which operates as a not for profit and is subject to processing fees, we will refund your registration fees less the fees charged by our credit card processing company

In the event the request for refund is made prior to the season try-out and drafting, the refund shall be calculated deducting the processing fee charged at the time of registration.  As an example, if the registration fee is $205, the processing fee $10.25 ($205 x 5.0%). 

In the event the request for refund is made after the player has been drafted by a team but before the first game of the season, the refund shall be calculated deducting the uniform cost plus the processing fee.  In the event the request for refund is made after the first game of the season, no refund will be made.

To request a refund, simply contact us with your registration details by emailing Please include your name, the player’s name, and the division of play.  Optionally tell us why you’re requesting a refund – we take customer feedback very seriously and use it to constantly improve our products and quality of service.
