Parents can practice or train their own child at any time(s), but parent must have a signed release form on file before training or practicing with their child. An "outside coach, trainer, or instructor is defined any person(s), other than BLE or Velopro certified staffing, whom is paid by a team or individual to direct sporting, fitness, or training related activities. Team coaches are to directly train their athletes, but "team coach(es)" is defined as any person(s) whom is actively in the dugout coaching the team throughout the ENTIRE SEASON. Team consultants or trainers are not considered a "team coaches". "Team coach(es)" are not defined as parent(s) of athletes.
Here at BLE, we maintain a safe training environment free of the pressures of recruiting by team coaches. This is taken very seriously & all team coaches, parents, & athletes are expected to abide by the following:
No Recruiting Policy
Absolutely no recruiting between the dates of September 1 - July 5 of following year. "Recruiting" is defined as directly or indirectly holding communication(s) in the form(s) of email, verbal, oral, written, text, phone, social media, or through 3rd party interactions for the purpose(s) of having a coach, trainer, or athlete move roster position(s) from their current team or organization to a different team or organization.
Entertaining or initiating any type of recruiting related communication(s) or interaction(s) is not tolerated. BLE does NOT consider who initiated such communication(s), as all parties involved will be held accountable. This includes initiating party and interacting party. Basically, if you are approached by any person(s) regarding roster movement(s) between teams - do NOT entertain such communications. Additionally, if you are unhappy with your current team - do NOT inquire with another team or organization.
Any athlete who changes rosters between September 1 - July 10 of following year will not be allowed to train or rent from BLE during that training year of September 1 - July 31 of following year. No refund or credit will be provided AND ATHLETE OR THEIR PARENTS WILL STILL BE REQUIRED TO FULFILL ANY AND ALL FINANCIAL OBLIGATION(S) ASSOCIATED WITH TEAM OR ROSTERING ORGANIZATION. Basically, do not leave one team (for another) and expect to "skip" out on your financial obligations. Even though you choose to no longer participate on your old team's roster - you still are responsible for financial obligations to them.
At times, parents and athletes do not fully divulge their current situation(s) to new teams or coaches they are seeking to change rosters to. In the event BLE is contacted regarding a no-recruiting violation(s), BLE will hold a meeting between previously rostered team directors/coaches, newly rostered team directors/coaches, and athlete(s) and parent(s) whom are in violation. Such meeting will be for the purpose(s) to come to an amicable understanding and develop potential solutions.
STEPS TO TAKE ACTION AGAINST POTENTIAL RECRUITING VIOLATION:
In the event you or your team have lost an athlete to another team or organization, conduct the following before contacting BLE: Contact new rostering team's coach directly. Do NOT email. Call them directly to discuss professionally and maturely. Remember that the new rostering team's coach may not be aware your athlete was rostered on your team.If a solution or resolve cannot be realized, contact BLE at [email protected] to have a meeting set up with yourself, new coach(es), athlete, and their parents.
BLE is not in the business to require athletes to play for teams they committed to. Granted, they should ethically, but it is the responsibility of the team to provide the right situation to its athletes. This ensures athletes and parents remain committed to a team's process. BLE will do its best to resolve any issues, and will assist if unethical recruiting occurred. The key word is "unethical", as it is not morally correct to attempt to improve one's roster while degrading another. If any athlete chooses to leave one team for another, that is their choice. But if BLE discovers such athlete left for "to play with friends", "carpooling logistics", or off field reasons - then enforcement of the above will be realized. BLE is not the "baseball or softball police", but has resources available to ensure teams compete with the athletes that committed to them.
