Sportsmanship policy

At Play Sask, we value good sportsmanship, which we define as fair and generous behaviour towards or treatment of opposing players and our own teammates.

If you see an individual or team consistently displaying good sportsmanship, you can nominate them for a Spirit Award! Individuals or teams that have received nominations throughout the season will be awarded with a prize at the last regular season game.

If a Play Sask member or team displays poor sportsmanship or breaks our code of conduct:

  1. We encourage Play Sask members to talk to the individual or team captain in a calm and respectful manner about the behaviour.

  2. If the behaviour does not improve, Play Sask members should speak to the league coordinator about the issue. The league coordinator will then speak to the individual or team captain, and let the Play Sask leadership know about the incident.

  3. If the behaviour does not improve, the Play Sask leadership will speak to the individual or team captain about the behaviour. Play Sask will keep a record of the conversation.

  4. If the behaviour does not improve, Play Sask will issue a final warning to the individual or captain that if there are any further complaints, the individual or team will be suspended from the league either permanently or for a set period of time.

  5. If the behaviour is reported again, the individual or team will be suspended from the league either permanently or for a set period of time.
