Draft of Fall 2013 Schedule Posted
Make your adjustments now....
On the left menu click on Games and select Current Schedules. Pick your team from the 'Search by Team', and click 'See Game Schedule' or you can click on your team name on the Teams page.
You may adjust the schedule of games for this fall from now to August 9th. Share the draft schedule with your team ASAP.
As you examine your schedule we ask you to consider more than just your team. With 340 teams playing 1360 games at 51 different sites this fall we all need to work together to make it the best we can for all PLAYERS, parents, coaches, and referees. Given the supply of referees, the number of fields and limits on their use, and the many things that affect player availability, it is not possible to grant everyone exactly what they want. Game times on weekdays are affected by sunset and games on weekends must be grouped to make effective use of the referees.
If you think you need a change then first look at your options by logging in, manage team and click on Game Changes, and choosing ‘View game options without submitting NTC’. If you still want to change a game then submit a Need to Change (NTC) by logging in, manage team and click on Game Changes, and choosing the game for which you need a change. Next communicate with your opponent and field coordinator to find a new date or time. Then submit a Game Change Request (GCR). Directions on completing games changes can be found on the Game Changes page.
You are encouraged to submit all GCRs by midnight August 9th. Everyone from parents, coaches, players and referees want to have as few changes as possible during the season.
When you are considering playing on a weekend, choose a new date and time that links up with existing games so one referee crew can easily do multiple games. If a date is marked '**No more refs available**' we have reached the limit of the number of games that we feel can be covered on that date and cannot add more games on that date unless the game would join with existing games to share referees. Clicking the Options link will show you the possibility of joining with an existing game or games. If this is what both teams want then email firstname.lastname@example.org with the game number, new date and new time.
Fall weekday game times get earlier as the season progresses because the sunset times get earlier each day. Unless the field has lights then the game time cannot be moved to a later time. However, you may use step 3b in Game Changes to move start times forward on weekdays - ie 7pm start to 6pm, not 6pm start to 7pm.
One way to solve a difficult scheduling problem is to change the game site. The team losing the home game should email email@example.com with the request and game number.
If Game changes are made during the preseason for weekend games that create a gap between remaining games then mvysa will adjust the game times to close the gap.
