Fair Play & Sportsmanship
All competitions must be conducted with a high standard of courtesy, fair play and sportsmanship. All those involved share this responsibility.

The coaches must demonstrate qualities of courtesy and good sportsmanship. These are evidenced by proper acceptance of officials’ judgment, positive encouragement of player performance and bench behaviour.

Athletes must demonstrate qualities of courtesy and good sportsmanship by proper acceptance of officials’ judgment and by showing proper respect for opposing athletes as well as for teammates.

A. Spectators, both student and adult, must demonstrate courtesy and good sportsmanship by positive cheers of encouragement for their team, not against the opposing team. This is evidenced by the absence of booing and vulgarities. Spectators must also show proper acceptance of officials’ judgment. Artificial noisemakers are not permitted during provincial championship tournaments/events. These noisemakers may include but are not limited to: air horns, cow bells, plastic tube horns, garbage can lids, etc. The provincial championship host shall have the authority to eject from the competition facility individuals who, following a warning, refuse to comply with this re requirement.

The Executive Committee or its designated representative shall have the authority to notify local law enforcement personnel of the failure of any person to immediately comply with a direction to leave any premises or venue hosting any ASAA sanctioned event.

All athletes, coaches and spectators are expected to abide by the ASAA code of ethics. Information regarding the ASAA’s code of ethics can be found on Pages 119 - 121 of their 2015/16 ASAA Official Handbook.

Sportsmanship Awards
Every ASAA Provincial Championship will receive 5 sportsmanship pins to distribute to individuals during the event. There will also be a team Sportsmanship award presented. The Sportsmanship committee (Murray Smith, Bryan Klaus, Brad Whittingham) will be responsible for selecting recipients of the ASAA’s sportsmanship pins and the team award.

Sportsmanship is vitally important and highly valued by the ASAA. A Sportsmanship plaque will be awarded to the team that displays appropriate conduct & sportsmanship both individually and at a team level throughout the Championship. Pins will be handed out throughout the Championship to individuals & spectators who display sportsmanship in their words & actions. The sportsmanship committee will be deciding who receives these awards.
