HTRSA's Code of Conduct

All registered players and their parents/guardians as well as all Coaches are bound to the Rules of HTRSA and it's Code of Conduct.

Players, Parents, Coaches, Division Commissioners and Officials must work together to promote sportsmanship and safety. The success of HTRSA is NOT determined by a single game, the final standings or the end of season win/loss record.  The success is built on positive instruction, teaching proper fundamentals and maintaining sportsmanship through fun competition.  This will provide a foundation our children can take with them for the rest of their lifetime.
