FAIR PLAY LEAGUE CRITERIA
below a copy of the criteria for which the fair play league will be based on
this season. After each match the referee will give each team a mark out of ten
based on the criteria below. The 3 main areas teams will be marked against are;
Respect shown towards opponents
Respect shown towards the referee
Any Red or Yellow cards.
Teams will be
deducted points from their total if they receive any red or yellow cards.
Yellow card =
1 point deduction
2 x yellow card=
2 points deducted
Red card =
3 points deducted
Yellow + direct
red = 4 points deducted
Opponent: Score - Max 5 points
positive attitudes (e.g. helping an injured opponent) rather than infringements.
Blameless behaviour, but without any particularly positive attitude, should be
awarded with a mark 4 rather than 5.
Referee: Score – Max 5 points
attitude shown towards the referee, including acceptance of doubtful decisions
without protest, points will be awarded.
Normal behaviour, but without any particularly positive attitude, will be
awarded with a mark of 4 rather than 5.
games: No show or cancelling team will get 0 points but the game will
be included in the average, the other team will get 0 points but the game will
not count towards their average.
be averaged out per games played.
If a team postpones a match, both teams will
be awarded their Fair Play points when the match is played at a later date.
(1) Any team who fails to show without
providing the necessary advanced notice will be awarded ZERO Fair Play points
for that match, and the match will count against their average Fair Play score.
(2) Any team who is unable to play a match
due to a ‘No-Show’ opposition will not receive Fair Play points and WILL NOT
have the match counted against their average. (This has the same net effect of
the team being awarded their current average score with the game counting
against their average)
The league standings are based on individual
teams and all Division 1 and Division 2 teams are in the same Fair Play League.
Each teams’ league standing is calculated by
the average Fair Play points awarded per game they have played (unless
rules for cancelled matches have been applied)
