What is the Sportsmanship Rating System and how does it work?

At HBU, we strive to promote a pleasant atmosphere, not only for our students but for our guests as well. This pertains to Intramural Sports as much as any other part of campus.  To promote a friendly and safe atmosphere, Intramural Sports implements a sportsmanship rating system that pertains towards players and fans/spectators.  The sportsmanship rating will be determined by Intramural Staff and will include behavior before, during, and after each contest. Each team will receive a letter grade after each game. A team that has an average sportsmanship rating of less than 2.5 will be ineligible for the playoffs. Sportsmanship ratings will be based off of the following criteria:

4 POINTS - Excellent Conduct and Sportsmanship: Players cooperate with officials and other team members. The manager calmly converses with officials about interpretations and calls. The manager also has full control of his/her teammates.  There was no abusive language used toward anybody.

3 POINTS – Good Conduct and Sportsmanship: Minor dissent is present, but overall players respect officials and the game. Captain shows control of his/her players and fans. There was no abusive language towards the officials.

2 POINTS – Average Conduct and Sportsmanship: Captain shows some control of his/her players and fans. Team shows abusive language towards officials and/or opposing team that may or may not merit a warning.  A rating of '2' will be given to a team when they Default a game.

1 POINT – Below Average Conduct and Sportsmanship: Teams constantly arguing with officials and/or opposing team. Captain shows little or no control of his/her players and fans.  Several warnings and/or one ejection will be present.

0 POINTS – Unacceptable Conduct and Sportsmanship: Team is completely uncooperative. Captain shows no control over his/her players and fans.  Any team that receives multiple ejections will receive a grade of '0'. If a '0' is issued, the team captain must meet with the Assistant Director of Intramural Sports before the start of the next scheduled game.  A rating of '0' will be given to a team when they forfeit a game.

Can my friend come watch my Intramural game even though he/she doesn't have a membership or attend HBU?

Yes. If someone does not have a membership or does not attend HBU, they should check in at the front desk of the Bradshaw Fitness Center. This allows our staff to be aware that they are in the facility to watch an intramural game.
