      Sportsmanship:

      The goals of the Insports Adult Leagues are to have fun, meet new people, and enjoy a safe and competitive environment to continue to participate in team sports. We hope that all participants can
      keep this in mind while involved in any programming at Insports. Any behavior deemed unacceptable may result in suspension and/or rejection from a game or league without refund or credit. Abuse of officials, referees, and other staff will not be tolerated. Insports Centers reserves the right to remove a player from a game or league if they are negatively impacting the customer experience for other participants. Insports does not tolerate fighting. Fighting will result and in an automatic ejection from the game and in most cases ejection from the league indefinitely. Remember that with your help, Insports can continue to grow the safe and friendly adult league culture that we are proud to provide!
