Sportsmanship Points Update

Due to inconsistency in the way sportsmanship points were being awarded early in the season, effective immediately, the following guidelines apply to the way sportsmanship points will be handled in the Fall 2018 season.

  • In each game, the referee will use 5 point system with categories, for max possible of 25 points per game
    • Consistent with card --> less confusing
    • Score of 3 in each category is an "average" game.  Only award higher scores if the team went beyond average.
  • Whenever high scores are awarded the referee shall write a comment on the game card justifying the high score.
  • End of season standings tie break will be based on AVERAGE sportsmanship points times 4, for a max possible score of 100 at end of season.
    • Teams with fewer than 5 games with points filled out will receive an end-of-season score of 50 (not counting deductions for ejections and yellow cards)
    • minus 5 points per send off (player, coach, or spectator)
    • minus 2 points per caution
    • NOTE: see Regional Guidelines under "About>Governing Documents" for description of when sportsmanship points would be used to break a tie.
  • The Sportsmanship Task Force will select a team of the week using one of the following criteria, at their discretion:
    • A team with maximum sportsmanship points AND a positive comment on the game card justifying why they got the high score.
    • A 6U team that goes above and beyond to show good sportsmanship.  (Since 6U teams do not have referees, this is how they can earn team of the week).
    • Any other team that goes above and beyond to show good sportsmanship.
  • Winning "Sportsmanship Team of the Week" does not affect Sportsmanship points
