Fun First Policy

The below policy outlines our expectations and values expected of our members playing in our leagues. This policy goes beyond our code of conduct suggesting positive behaviour and traits within our leagues.


Our Event Hosts facilitate a fun, safe environment for teams. They will acknowledge, coach and make calls according to your level of experience playing the game. Urban Rec leagues expect a certain level of self-officiation, meaning that players are expected to display good sportsmanship to govern their behaviour on and off the playing surface.

The utilisation of questionable tactics that involve gamesmanship is prohibited from Urban Rec leagues and teams that engage in such behaviour may be suspended or expelled from Urban Rec leagues. Participate for your own enjoyment, and benefit.

Teams that place competitiveness above good sportsmanship are not encouraged to register for Urban Rec. Play to the level of your opponents for the sake of everyone's enjoyment of the game.

For all skill levels, the goal of playing in the league is to have fun and play sports. Good sportsmanship is essential, and open communication and camaraderie between teams is encouraged.


Teams registering at the recreational skill level should be primarily of players who are new to the game or are returning to the game after a prolonged absence. The average player on a recreational team will have a basic understanding and ability of the skills involved, but may not have had much practice actually playing.

Players may have little or no knowledge of the rules and be willing to learn the Urban Rec style of game play through coaching from our Event Hosts.


Teams registering for any Intermediate leagues, should be teams who have played a few seasons in the recreational league, and feel confident playing against more experienced teams. The average player on an intermediate team will have a more refined understanding of the skills involved.

While players should have a good knowledge of the rules for their sport, they also need to understand that Urban Rec rules and ethos do differ to other clubs and associations.
