HYP Sports League is a great opportunity for participants to socialize with friends, network with other athletes, enjoy a family atmosphere, to be competitive, but mostly to have fun. The HYP Athlete and Spectator Code of Conduct have been established to ensure safety for our athletes, game officials, and families to have the experience to continue to enjoy throughout each season of HYP Sports.

  • Respect teammates, opponents, game officials, and spectators.
  • Refrain from any use of obscene or abusive language, gestures or behavior.
  • Stay clear of the athletic perimeter while the game is in action to prevent injury(s).
  • Be a professional and have fun-remember who you represent!
