    Roster Non-Compliance

    An email was sent this morning (1/30) informing coordinators that any team with missing jersey numbers on the team roster on this website after 5pm Friday Feb 3 will not be eligible to participate in the post season tournament. These were due on December 3rd and there simply is no excuse to not have them at this point. Only coordinators are able to edit rosters at this point in the season to fix these issues. If you are a coach and see that your roster is missing jersey numbers, please contact your coordinator. click here to read more ...

    7th-12th Grade Tournament

    There are only 3 weeks left in the season for 7th-12th grade teams.  After the weekend of February 4th, we will begin assigning teams to brackets and seeding them based on their records to date. Coaches, please submit your game scores in a timely manner during the next two weekends of play. The tournament schedule will be posted on the website in the evening on February 9th. Tournament games will mostly be played on February 18th and 19th but some opening round games will be played on Friday, February 17th and probably a few games on Thursday, February 16th. As always, this is a single elimination tournament and individuals for the winning and runner up team will receive medals.  If teams do NOT want to play in the tournament, we need to know by February 1st at the very latest, sooner if possible.  Coordinators were sent an email on 1/28 with information about the tentative gym assignments and other tournament information.  Thanks!

    Game Reschedules

    Coaches should not reschedule their games, this is a job for coordinators who will work with their coaches.  When a game is postponed, both coaches will receive an email from the league based on the email your coordinator used to register your team.  If you did not receive an email when a game was postponed or cancelled, please check your junk or spam mail folder or confirm the league has your correct email address.

    Postponing

    1. Games will be postponed due to illness, school event, or gym closure.  PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL THE LEAGUE REQUESTING A RESCHEDULE BECAUSE PARENTS ARE CHOOSING TO TRAVEL OR CHOOSING TO PLAY IN A LACROSSE TOURNAMENT, etc ...
    2. Coordinators should contact the league as soon as they are aware of a legitimate reason to postpone the game
    3. The league will attempt to fill any gaps in the schedule at the gym by moving the first or last game of the day into that gym slot if the postponement is communicated to the league before 8pm on Tuesday for Friday games, 8pm on Wednesday for Saturday games, and 8pm on Thursday for Sunday games.  Please note that if the gap is in the middle of the day for a gym with a large amount of games, we will most likely not fill the gap as we don't want to reschedule a game by 5 hours with only 2 days notice.
    4. Coaches can optionally subscribe to receive this notifications by SMS text by editing their account.  Some games are getting cancelled at the last minute and the SMS text is a bit more timely.
