1.       FAIR PLAY and SPORTSMANSHIP

Foul language, aggressive behaviour, avoidable physical contact, verbal disputes over rules and scores, disrespect for other players or SASS organizers will NOT BE TOLERATED.   Unsportsmanlike behaviour will result in players and/or teams being removed from SASS leagues without refund.   Remember everyone is out for a fun and social athletic experience!
