Sportsmanship Rating Guide

Bookmark and Share

The Intramural Sports Program expects all participants to conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner. Following each contest, Intramural staff evaluate and issue sportsmanship ratings to all teams. The rating guide is as follows:

4 - Excellent Conduct and Sportsmanship

Players cooperate fully with the officials and other team members. The captain calmly converses with officials about rule interpretations and calls. The captain also has full control of his/her teammates, bench, and spectators. Teams that win by forfeit will receive a "4". Teams that receive 1 verbal warning for use of profanity cannot receive higher than a "3" rating.

3 - Good Conduct and Sportsmanship

Team members verbally complain about some decisions made by the officials and/or show minor dissension, which may or may not merit a yellow card (soccer, volleyball, softball), unsportsmanlike flag (flag football), or technical foul (basketball). Teams that receive 1 yellow card (soccer, volleyball, softball), unsportsmanlike flag (flag football), or technical foul (basketball) cannot receive higher than a "3" rating.

2 - Average Conduct and Sportsmanship

Team shows verbal dissent towards officials and/or the opposing team, which may or may not merit a yellow card (soccer, volleyball, softball), unsportsmanlike flag (flag football), or technical foul (basketball). Captain exhibits minor control over his/her teammates, bench, and spectators, but is in control with himself/herself. Teams receiving multiple yellow cards (soccer, volleyball, softball), unsportsmanlike flags (flag football), or technical fouls (basketball) cannot receive higher than a "2" rating.

1 - Below Average Conduct and Sportsmanship

Team consistently comments to the officials and/or the opposing team from the field and/or sidelines. The team captain exhibits little or no control over teammates, bench, spectators, and/or himself/herself. A team which receives one red card (soccer, volleyball, softball) or an ejection (flag football, basketball) cannot receive higher than a "1" rating.

0 - Poor Conduct and Sportsmanship

Team is completely uncooperative. Captain has no control over teammates, bench, spectators, and/or himself/herself. Any team causing a game to be forfeited, other than by not showing, or receives multiple ejections will receive a "0" rating.

During Regular Season Play

  • A team that receives a "0" rating must have their captain meet with the Director of Campus Recreation the following business day to be eligible to play their next contest.
  • A team must have a 3.0 average or better sportsmanship rating to be eligible to participate in playoffs, regardless of record.
  • A team winning a contest by default will receive a "4" rating.
  • A team winning a contest by forfeit will receive a "4" rating.
  • A team losing a contest by default will receive a "3" rating.


Sportsmanship Ratings During the Playoffs

  • If a team receives a "0" rating they will be eliminated from the playoffs.
  • A player receiving an ejection will be disqualified from all remaining playoff games.
