Spirit Score Info

At the end of each game, a spirit score is to be awarded to the opposing team on a scale from 1 to 10. The team as a whole should have input on what spirit score should be awarded to the other team. At the end of the tournament, there will be a spirit trophy and prizes awarded to the team with the highest spirit average. All teams should try to follow the guidelines set out below in order to keep the system equal for everyone.

Spirit rating = 10

The other team was a great team and we really enjoyed playing against them.  They showed up on time and showed great sportsmanship throughout the game.  During the game they played by the rules, but if we had a dispute they were open to discuss the rules.  This was one of the best spirited teams we have played against, and we are really looking forward to play against them again.

Spirit rating = 8

The other team was a fun team and we enjoyed playing against most of their players.  They showed up on time and showed decent sportsmanship throughout the game.  During the game they generally played by the rules, but if we had a dispute they were pretty receptive to discuss the rules.  Not a bad team to play against.

Spirit rating = 6

The other team was an ok team and we enjoyed playing against only a few of their players.  They showed up late and/or showed poor sportsmanship throughout the game.  During the game they really didn't play by the rules, and really didn't want to learn the rules.  The captains should discuss what happened so it doesn't happen again.  This wasn't a fun game, and our captain will add a brief comment to the score submission explaining the low spirit score.

Spirit rating = 4

The other team was not fun to play against and we did not enjoy playing against any of their players.  They showed up very late and/or showed very poor sportsmanship throughout the game.  During the game they didn't play by the rules, and didn't want to learn the rules.  The captains should discuss what happened so it doesn't happen again.  This wasn't a fun game, and our captain will explain what happened during the game in the score submission.

Spirit rating = 1

The other team was terrible to play against. We did not enjoy playing against any of their players. They showed up very late and/or showed horrible sportsmanship throughout the game.  During the game, they were very negligent of the rules, and of the safety and enjoyment of our team. They had no desire to learn the rules.  This is the least spirited team we have every played against.  Our captain is going to send a report to the tournament convener explaining what happened during the game.

Any team that defaults a game (because they do not have enough players) will receive a 4 for spirit for the game that they defaulted and the non-defaulting team will not receive a spirit score (their spirit average will not be affected).
