Rescheduling Rules

 

  • Game is not considered complete unless the full second quarter has been completed, and the third quarter has begun.  If the games ends before that, it needs to be rescheduled
  • Coaches cannot ‘call’ a game on their own, if they do make a call to cancel or end a game, the game may not be made up.
  • Once teams are at the field, only the referees may make a decision to stop the game or restart it.
  • LYSA weather policy requires referees to wait 30 minutes after hearing thunder or seeing lightening or after a lightning detector goes off before making a decision to resume play. 


Weather Related Rescheduling Steps


This applies to all age divisions except Tiger Paws. 


Tiger Cubs coaches may with the agreement of the visiting coach, decide to not reschedule a game since there are no scores or standings. 


If a game or games are cancelled due to bad weather, or if the prescribed fields are closed for any reason, the policy is as follows:

  • The Home coach shall contact the Visiting coach and together they shall submit (through the home coach) a list of three (3) possible dates to the Game Scheduler. 
  • The Game Scheduler will work with the Referee Coordinator to determine the date and time of the reschedule to ensure referee availability.
  • The Game Scheduler will contact the Home coach and inform him/her of the new game date (The Home coach contacts the Visitor coach with this new date).
  • If the requested dates do not work for some reason, the Game Scheduler will contact the Home coach to ask him/her to begin the process again.  These dates should be within 10 days of the original game date.
  • Should the two coaches not come up with alternate dates within 10 days, then the Game Scheduler will assign a date for them.


If there is a discrepancy of opinion between Coach and Game Scheduler, a protest may be pursued with the LYSA District Representative, whose decision is Final.

A coach has the right to ask for a reschedule for only the following reasons:

  • Official school function or religious holiday
  • Resulting in his/her team not being able to meet the ‘minimum number of player’ criteria as specified in the SAY National Rulebook (see forms/links tab at: http://www.lovelandsoccer.org).


If a coach believes he/she has a legitimate reason for a reschedule (indicated above) he/she must contact the Game Scheduler no later than four days prior to the scheduled game to make the request. (e.g. For a Saturday game, call or email by the preceding Tuesday.  For a Tuesday game, call or email by the preceding Friday).  The Game Scheduler determines if the reschedule proceeds or not. 

If a reschedule is warranted following procedures will apply:

  • The Home coach shall contact the Visiting coach and together they shall submit (through the home coach) a list of three (3) possible dates to the Schedule Coordinator. 
  • The Game Scheduler will work with the Referee Coordinator to determine the date and time of the reschedule to ensure referee availability.
  • The Game Scheduler will contact the Home coach and inform him/her of the new game date (The Home coach contacts the Visitor coach with this new date).
  • If the requested dates do not work for some reason, the Game Scheduler will contact the Home coach to ask him/her to begin the process again.  These dates should be within 10 days of the original game date.

Should the two coaches not come up with alternate dates within 10 days, then the Reschedule Coordinator will assign a date for them.


If there is a discrepancy of opinion between Coach and Reschedule Coordinator, a protest may be pursued with the LYSA District Representative, whose decision is Final.
