SPORTSMANSHIP “IT’S A SPORT!” “BE A SPORT!”
Athletic competition, at the recreation level, can be a rewarding lifetime activity. Jersey All Sports endeavors to provide a safe and enjoyable experience that is worthy of the time and money expended and an activity which can be enjoyed by players and spectators. The end product, or the quality of the experience, will rest with the attitude each participant brings to the contest.
As a league, we hope the individual competitors will rely on an old standard----sportsmanship. Compete hard and compete within the rules. What we might see at the college or professional level does not necessarily enhance the experience at the local level. When the moment of frustration rears its ugly head ---experience the moment and move on with the contest. Remember, enjoy the recreational activity for just what it is----a game. Pursue victory with honor. Have Fun!
Jersey All Sports does not tolerate discrimination, racism, sexual harassment, unwelcome sexual advances, violence, threats, or any other type of behavior that may in any way make any member/player feel uncomfortable or threaten his or her health and well-being. We expect all members to treat each other with respect and abide by common rules of decency and good sportsmanship.
Team names must not be offensive toward any race, nationality, gender, or any other group of individuals. They must also not contain profanity. Please use tact and common sense when choosing a team name. JAS reserves the right to reject any team name it finds offensive. Creative and funny names are encouraged; offensive ones will not be allowed.
During play, all participants must refrain from taunting, name-calling, put-downs, intimidation, and violence toward teammates, opponents and game officials. Everyone makes mistakes, and we will not tolerate criticism or intimidation of any opponent or officials due to differences in skill level or any other factor.
In case of a disputed play or official's call, team managers or captains may consult game officials. All other players, coaches or spectators are to be kept out of the discussion.
All league members are encouraged to report offensive behavior to us via email. All reports will be kept anonymous and taken seriously, and appropriate action will be taken if deemed necessary, including, but not limited to warnings, suspension and removal of the offending individual from our leagues.
