In the SCRHL, the opposing team captain and game referee will assess each team's sportsmanship based on a whole number rating system ranging from 0 to 3 points at the end of each regular season and playoff game.
Each of these two ratings for each team (one from the opposing team and one from the game referee) will be displayed for each team on the SCRHL website at www.scrhl.ca following each game. The team with the highest cumulative sportsmanship rating in each division at the end of a regular season will receive a $100 Team Sportsmanship Award in the form of a pub gift card with a minimum $100 balance (100% of monetary fines collected for game misconducts and suspensions will be added to the $100 starting balance in each division throughout the season). If there is a tie among teams within a division, then the pub gift card will be shared equally among all teams.
0 -- 10+ minor and major penalties incurred per team, game misconducts / gross misconducts / matches incurred by a team, excessive verbal abuse of players / officials
1 -- 5 to 9 minor and/or any major penalties incurred per team, game misconducts / gross misconducts / matches incurred by a team, some verbal abuse of players / officials
2 -- 5 to 9 minor penalties per team, good sportsmanship exhibited with frequent comments made by a team (but not considered verbally abusive)
3 -- 0 to 4 minor penalties per team, good sportsmanship exhibited by a team on all levels, occasional comments made by a team (but not considered verbally abusive)
