1. Coaching conflicts are not an acceptable reason to cancel a game. You will need to find another coach from your club to cover the game. These conflicts should have been taken care of prior to the season.
2. Player availability is not an acceptable reason to cancel a game. We are a US Youth Soccer sanctioned league, and teams can supplement their roster with players from other teams within their club.
3. Conflicts with games from other leagues are not an acceptable reason to cancel a game.
4. No game will be moved from the original date, unless your opponents agree to the change, where a new date, time and field is agreed upon and entered in the game change request form. We will NOT APPROVE a game change request unless this is confirmed.
5. If a team cancels the week of the game, they will be responsible for all Referee fees and will be subject to the forfeit fee of $100.
