All teams are required to have a sportsmanship average above ‘Needs Improvement’ (2.0) in order to remain in the league. If a team falls below a ‘Needs Improvement’ (2.0), the captain will be required to meet with either the Assistant Director or Intramural Coordinator and the team will be placed on probation. During probation, the team will have 1 week to get their sportsmanship average above a ‘Needs Improvement’ (2.0) or they will be removed from the league. If a team falls below an average of a ‘Needs Improvement’ (2.0) two times during the season they will be removed from the league. Any team that receives more than 1 ‘Poor Sport’ rating by a site supervisor will be removed from the league. If a team is removed from the league because of sportsmanship, they will automatically lose their forfeit deposit.
A team’s sportsmanship average will also be used to determine eligibility to play in the season ending championship tournament and to break a tie in team rankings. The team with the higher sportsmanship average will get the higher seed.
If a game is not played due to a default, both teams will receive a 4 for a sportsmanship rating. If a team forfeits a game, they will receive a 2 for a sportsmanship rating and if their opponent qualifies for a win by forfeit, they receive a sportsmanship rating of a 4.
