Violence and Harassment Policy
In order to protect the climate of safety and security for all participants and to make clear Eastvale Little League's long standing position toward any threat or harassment toward any league participant; the League's Board of Directors has chosen to document this policy as a code of conduct.

The ELL Board will immediately communicate this policy to all ELL members and stakeholders, especially managers, coaches, umpires, parents, and players, and advise them of their responsibility to report all incidents that can reasonably be construed as violence.
Upon receipt of any report of alleged violence, the President of ELL or his lawful representative and an appointed sub-committee, will conduct an investigation to determine if the allegations are substantiated. The investigation will commence within 7 days of the reported incident.
