The Old Dominion Soccer League has certain expectations of exemplary sportsmanship on the part of the teams, players, coaches, volunteers, and parents participating in the league. The soccer skills that we teach our players will serve many of them well into adulthood. In addition, all our players will benefit through-out their lives by what we teach them about sportsmanship, respect for their opponent, respect for the officials, and dignity.

Two Ways to Print Roster Labels for Your Game Report Cards
As covered at the preseason meeting, ODSL no longer has the referees use the 10 point system to rate the teams for sportsmanship. Now the referees are asked to rate separately the players, coaches, and spectators for sportsmanship on a scale from 0 to 4. 4 being excellent, 3 good, 2 average, 1 poor, and 0 being unacceptable. The referees submit this information in their online match report. You can see a team’s averages on these points by passing your cursor over the figures in the SP_AVG column on the standings page. These ratings help the league reinforce the ODSL Codes of Conduct. They are also used as a tie breaker in the Randy Rawls Sportsmanship Award voting. The League will apply additional scrutiny to any teams that consistently run a negative average.
Total cautions (yellow cards) and total ejections (red cards) are tracked separately under the TC and TE columns. These also figure into the Randy Rawls Awards.
