Following each regular-season game, the on-field officials will rate each team. The average of ratings would serve as the criteria for playoff eligibility.
Teams must have an average of at least a “B” fair play rating and not more than 3 ejections during league play to be eligible for playoffs.
“A” Excellent Conduct – Players fully cooperate with officials and other participants. The captain calmly converses with the officials about rule interpretations and calls and has full control of teammates.
“B” Good Conduct – Team members verbally complain about some decisions made by officials and/or show minor dissension toward opposition that may or not merit a warning. A team that has one player receiving a warning will receive no higher than a “B” rating.
“C” Average Conduct – Team members display verbal dissent towards an official and/or opposing players, which may merit a warning. Captain exhibits minor control over teammates, but is in control of his/herself. Players which receive multiple warnings and no more than 1 ejection will receive a rating no higher than “C”.
“D” Below Standard Conduct – Team constantly complains to official and/or opposing players from field and/or sidelines. The team captain exhibits little control over teammates or him/herself. Participants which receive more than 1 ejection, but no more than 3, will receive a rating no higher than “D”.
“F” Poor Conduct – Team is completely uncooperative. The team captain has no control over teammates or him/herself. Any team which cause a game to be forfeited or receives more than 3 ejections will be given an “F”.
