The City of Green Bay Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department expects all participants and spectators to conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner. In order to continue to play in your league, a team must maintain an average sportsmanship rating of four (4). An average sportsmanship score of less than 4 may warrant a team being asked to leave the league (upon discretion of Park and Recreation Supervisor). Following the game, umpire(s) and site supervisors evaluate team behavior and issue sportsmanship points to all teams. Teams in contention for playoffs or for winning the league championship may be ineligible if their season sportsmanship score is less than 4. These circumstances will be reviewed and decided upon in a case-by-case basis by the Park and Recreation staff. Team sportsmanship scores will be posted online weekly.
