West Scranton Little League Social Media Policy

 

We recognize that we live in a country in which the 1st Amendment to the Constitution gives us the right to free speech. However, by voluntarily choosing to participate in the West Scranton Little League, you are obligated to abide by the League’s rules, policies and procedures as well as those of Little League Baseball, Inc. 

In this regard, please note that parents and players may be subject to discipline, including suspension or permanent termination of inclusion to WSLL, when, in the reasonable opinion of the WSLL Board of Directors, the conduct of a parent or player is determined to be detrimental to the best interests of WSLL or Little League Baseball. 

Effective immediately, all Board members, managers, coaches, team parents, parents and players run the risk of immediate suspension or permanent termination if you are responsible for making disparaging, threatening, offensive, retaliatory or otherwise inappropriate comments made about the league, any board member, any parent or any player on Facebook, Twitter or any other social networking site.

This is a zero tolerance policy.

WSLL Board of Directors will enforce zero tolerance for any derogatory comments made on social media, team websites, or any public forum, by all WSLL participants. Allegations of violation of the WSLL social media policy shall be presented to the Board for investigation. The Board at a special meeting called for that purpose shall make a determination if the policy has been violated and what appropriate actions are to be taken.

 

Thank you

West Scranton Little League Board of Directors
