    Game Reschedules

    As we are getting more and more COVID cases in our league and it is also cold and flu season, please read this reminder about postponing and rescheduling games.  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.
    2. Coordinators should contact the league as soon as they are aware of a legitimate reason to postpone the game
    3. NEW POLICY AS OF 1/17:  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 10pm on Wednesday for Friday games, 10pm on Thursday for Saturday games, and 10pm on Friday 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.

    Rosters Are Now Frozen

    As of midnight on December 31st, rosters were frozen.  At that time, the following changes were made to the web site:

    1. Liability waiver submissions will no longer create roster entries for those organizations that have chosen this setting
    2. Coaches and coordinators will no longer be able to add players to rosters
    3. Moving forward, only coordinators will be able to make updates to rosters, and ANY additions to the roster must be sent to the league for approval before being made on the web site.  Only special circumstances will be considered.

    Gym Protocols

    COVID protocols/policies for the 2021-22 season will be regulated by each individual facility. Please familiarize yourself with the different protocols at all game sites by going to our Gyms Page. Coordinators are responsible for updating this information from their Coordinator Portal.  If you do not see a policy listed for a gym, then you can assume there is no policy.  In addition, all coaches playing at a facility that does have a COVID policy will be sent an email at 12pm each Friday with information about that policy for upcoming games that weekend.  This information should be shared with their team.  We have encouraged all coordinators to make sure there is clear signage at their facility to indicate any policies that are being enforced.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
