McKinney Little League Baseball's primary objective is to implant firmly in the youth 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 decent, healthy and trustworthy adults.
- Little League is a recreational youth sports program to be enjoyed by all players in the program.
- Each child who wishes to play ball should be entitled to do so regardless of skill, gender, or financial circumstances.
- Through involvement in Little League, the player will have the opportunity to develop the fundamental skills of the game of baseball, learn sportsmanship, socialize with their peers, develop leadership qualities and actively participate as a valuable team member.
- Team achievement, in contrast to individual achievement, must ensure that personal identity and integrity are not sacrificed for winning.
- Praise and recognition are the most effective tools in inspiring an attitude of self-confidence which is key to development of the character of the individual.
- Good sportsmanship and courtesy are necessary for a harmonious and safe environment.
- The league personnel, parents, and all participants share the responsibility of making Little League a safe and wholesome activity.
- All players should leave the field feeling that their presence mattered, even if time was spent on the bench.
- The competitiveness of the game increases as the player advances in Little League, from Tee-Ball, with the least competitiveness, to Senior League Baseball where the competitive drive is at a very high level. At no time in the program should an individual's self-esteem be sacrificed for a competitive advantage.
