Bullying & Harassment

Cloverdale Minor Baseball Association believes in having a safe space for all to play, watch, and participate.  That is why there is ZERO tolerance for any actions by any players, coaches, parents (whether home or visiting), that would be perceived as bullying or harassment in nature.  This can be either direct or in-direct exposure (witnessed) to actions of bullying and/or harassment.

Definition of Bullying and/or Harassment:

  • Targeting an individual or group with repetitive and intentional negative actions.
  • When one person has more power over others and those being targeted feel they are unable to defend themselves.
  • When the person being targeted feels alone, afraid, or unwelcome in the organization.

In an effort to ensure resolution and communication between parties, the committee will be asking that the following steps occur before the committee will intervene:

  • Bring concerns to other family involved.
    • If you brought your concerns to the family involved and nothing happened, talk to the Coach
  • Talk to the Head coach/assistant coach about your concerns.
    • If you spoke to the coach(es) and nothing has happened, bring your concern to the Division co-oridnator
  • When you have exhausted all avenues and no resolution has happened, reach out to the Bullying & Harassment committee.

The committee WILL NOT get involved with any disputes between or among parents/spectators unless it is directly involving the welfare of the players.  Claims of lack of playing time, parent/spectator disputes between each other, or any un-verifiable claim, etc. are not deemed as instances where the committee will get involved.

For more information, please refer to our Players Code of Conduct, Parents Code of Conduct, and Coaches Code of Conduct.

If you are experiencing or have witnessed acts of bullying and/or harassment within the organization, we encourage you to report it to our committee.  The committee will review the claim and take the necessary steps outlined above. Serious claims of Bullying &/or Harassment will be escalated to BC Minor and/or Baseball BC.

Remember that false/perceived claims of bullying &/or harassment ALSO constitute a form of bullying/harassment and will be dealt with accordingly.
