Skyhawk Point System
The Skyhawk Point System: How it Works
Point System Breakdown
Participation points will make up a large number of the team’s total points. Participation points are awarded if a team competes in all scheduled events.
Sportsmanship points are awarded according to the ratings received by a team. The ratings are based on evaluations completed by intramural staff. In order to qualify for the post-season tournament, a team must have a “B” (3.0) average sportsmanship rating or better during the regular season play. The criteria below will be used for the sportsmanship rating.
“A” – excellent conduct and sportsmanship: coaches, players and spectators cooperate fully with the officials, sport supervisors and opposing team members. The captain calmly converses with officials about interpretations and judgment calls. The captain also has complete control of the team members and himself/ herself.
“B” – average conduct and sportsmanship: coaches, players and spectators show verbal dissent toward officials, sport supervisors and/ or the opposing team members briefly during a contest which may or may not merit actions by the intramural staff. The captain exhibits good control over the team, and is in complete control of himself/herself. There are no blatant displays of overall poor sportsmanship, however a member of the team may have been penalized for a nonthreatening unsportsmanlike act.
“C” – below average conduct and sportsmanship: coaches, players and spectators constantly comment, argue and complain to intramural staff and opposing team members during a contest which may or may not merit actions by the intramural staff. Team captain has minor control over his/ her team and is generally in control of himself/ herself. Specific acts include but are not limited to abusive language, profanity toward an opponent, profanity from the sidelines, excessive arguing with an officials decision, taunting and opponent, or obscene gestures.
“D” – poor conduct and sportsmanship: coaches, players, and spectators constantly comment, argue and complain to intramural staff and opposing team members during a contest which merits action from intramural staff. Team captain has no control over his/her team or him/herself. Specific acts include but are not limited to fighting, profanity or threatening behavior towards and official, a flagrant foul, profanity from the sidelines, or repeated offenses on the same player.
NOTES: In the above description, the player(s) refers to all participants on a team. Teams receiving a “C” or “D” rating must have their captain meet with Coordinator of Intramurals prior to their next contest. A second “D” rating will automatically result in being dropped from league play. No refunds will be given.
Games and matches won are applied to a team’s total points, by multiplying the number of games or matches won by ten during season play. Each sports number is listed on the Skyhawk Point System Chart. Captain’s meeting points are given each time a team’s representative attends the captain’s meeting. Placement points are awarded at the end of the tournament.
