The SCRHL will be assessing monetary fines to full teams at a given game based on ALL of the following criteria being met:
1) Referee and/or Timekeeper report submitted at end of game indicating a sportsmanship rating of 0 (Lowest).
2) At least one team sportsmanship rating of the opposing team of 0 (Lowest).
3) Unsportsmanlike conduct collectively demonstrated by more than one player on a given team as per Referee and/or Timekeeper report.
**Exception: Feedback from Timekeepers or Arena Staff pertaining to non-compliance of arena rules on the ice will result in an automatic fine to the team without the above criteria required.
100% of the team fines collected by the League Manager will be donated to KidSport and the receipt received from KidSport will be photographed and displayed on the league website / sent to the team captain. KidSport is a non-profit organization that provides funding to financially disadvantaged children who are unable to play in minor sports.
Fines will be $300 per team per game (equates to approximately $20 per player based on a 15-player rostered per team). The fine must be paid by the team before their next scheduled game or the team will not play any SCRHL games until it is paid. How the team collects the $300 to pay the fine to SCRHL league administration is left up to the team's decision (ie: distributed equally among all players or weighted based on certain players).
