1. Introduction
The objective of the Local League shall be to implant firmly in the children of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority, so that they may be well adjusted, stronger and happier children and will grow to be good, decent, healthy and trustworthy citizens.
The safety of players, volunteers, and spectators is everyone’s responsibility. This manual is intended to provide information and tools to help prevent or reduce accidents and injuries. It is important that all hazardous, incidents, and injuries are reported to the Safety Officer or a Board Member immediately. If you see something, say something.

2. League Safety Officer
The Safety Officer is responsible for creating awareness and educating the league on the opportunities to provide a safer environment for children and all participants. The Safety Officer will prepare a safety awareness plan (Safety Manual) each year for the league and make sure that the manual is used.
The Safety Manual is on file with Little League International and all updates will be made through the Little League Data Center.

5. Volunteer Applications
Camas Little League will use the official 2022 Little League online volunteer application form to screen all volunteers. We will use JD Palatine for all background checks. The confidential forms/information will be retained through the SportsConnect platform for each year of volunteer service.
Anyone refusing to complete a volunteer application will be ineligible to participate as a volunteer with Camas Little League.

6. Fundamentals Training
Camas Little League will provide and require at least one coach or manager from each team to attend training in the key fundamental areas for baseball and softball, as outlined below. Training will qualify a volunteer for two years, but one team representative is still required to attend each year.
Trainings completed prior to the 2022 ASAP deadline include:

Fundamentals Review and Coaches Meeting - Baseball (Tee Ball, Minors, Majors)

Fundamentals Review and Coaches Meeting - Baseball (50/70)

Fundamentals Review and Coaches Meeting - Softball (all)

Any additional unscheduled 2022 training sessions including fundamentals, scorekeeping, and/or softball workshops set forth by Camas Little League or WA D4 will be attended by at least one coach or manager from each team.

7. First Aid Training
Camas Little League will provide and require at least one coach or manager from each team to attend First Aid training. Training will be held during the coaches meetings. Training will qualify a volunteer for 3 years, but one team representative is still required to attend each year.

8. Field Inspections & Game Cancellations
All Managers (head coaches) and Umpires are responsible for checking the field safety conditions before each game. This includes a physical walk and inspection of the fields, dugouts, and surrounding areas. Concerns must be conveyed to the Safety Officer or the Board Member on Duty.
Coaches and umpires should work together to decide if field conditions are playable. Ideally, cancellations will be made 1 hour or more prior to the scheduled start time. This allows adequate time for players to be notified.

9. 2022 Annual Little League Facility Survey
Camas Little League utilizes seven (7) fields for baseball and softball games. An additional City park field was identified and renovation is underway. The completed 2022 Facility Survey has been uploaded to the LL Data Center. The list of fields are identified below.

10. Concession Stand Safety

11. Equipment Inspection
The League Equipment Manager will inspect and replace all equipment, as needed, prior to the 2022 season. Managers and Coaches are required to inspect all equipment prior to each game. For competitive games, the Umpire in Chief will have the final say on equipment allowed in a game.

12. Accident Reporting
Camas Little League will use the Incident Tracking Form from the Little League International Website and the Safety Officer has informed each Manager on the Accident/Near Miss Reporting procedure. All completed Accident/Near Miss Reports need to be filed with the Safety Officer within 24-48 hours of the incident. All safety procedures, forms, and contact information will be posted in all common areas. All "near miss" information will be evaluated and reported to the District Safety Officer in an attempt to avoid future injuries.

13. First-Aid Kits
Each team will be issued an updated first aid kit and will be required to have it at every practice, game, and team event. These kits will be issued with the team’s equipment bag. Contact the Safety Officer or a Board Member to refill/restock items used from the first aid kit.

14. Little League Rules
Camas Little League requires all teams, managers, coaches, board members, and volunteers to enforce all Little League Rules. The 2022 Little League Rule Book is to be used in all Camas Little League games and practices. Camas Little League only uses Little League approved equipment. All Volunteer/Coach Code of Conduct & Safety Code of Conduct forms will be reviewed and signed by every member of the Camas Little League and kept on file with the Safety Officer.

15. Player & Coach Data
League player registration, player roster, and manager/coach data will be submitted via the Little League Data Center at www.littleleague.org. New player or coach/manager data will be added to the Little League Data Center within two weeks of becoming active with a team.

16. Parents & Spectators
All parents and spectators should understand that this is a developmental league for both the competitive and non-competitive player. It is important that positive support is shown to all players, coaches, and umpires. The use of foul or inappropriate language or gestures is not welcome at Camas Little League. This is a volunteer organization intended to create a fun, learning atmosphere for kids. Please do your part to help us make practices and games enjoyable for all.
