Please note that only National License courses are eligible for reimbursement.

Rescheduling Games

Fall Season

With no rankings or playoffs in the fall, making up cancelled games is not as important as it is in the spring and the shorter days make evening games impossible.  Still, players want to play, coaches want to coach, and spectators want to spectate.

If a coach wishes to make up a cancelled home game:
- Get in touch with the field coordinator (Mike Connor) for field availability.
- Reach out to the opposing coach with a couple of suggested dates/times.
- Once an agreement has been reached, confirm with Mike and contact Cassandra Healy and Jen Sjostedt for referee scheduling.
        - Please contact Cassandra Healy and Jen Sjostedt if you are cancelling a scheduled game so they can let the referees know.

CYSL Procedures (Spring 2016)


Town Coordinators will make the decision if a field is in unplayable condition due to weather prior to 7:00 AM, Saturday, 11:00 AM Sunday or 2 hours before the first game, whichever is earlier.

 The Town Coordinator will then notify the appropriate home team coaches and Town Referee Coordinator. The Town Referee Coordinator will notify the assigned referees.

 Home team coaches are responsible for immediately notifying the visiting team coach. If you cannot contact the visiting coach two hours prior to a rained out game, then please be at the field to notify the visiting coach.

 Unless notified by the Town Coordinator or home team coach, teams must report to the scheduled field where the decision to play is made by the assigned referee.

 Any canceled games in the month of April must be played before May 15.

 Any canceled games in May or June must be played before the last game of the season.

 Forfeits will result if the above procedure was not followed or games are not played within the make up period. An appropriate fine (8f) is charged when a game is forfeited.

 HALTED PLAY: In the event of electric and/or thunderstorms, the game shall be stopped for the duration of the storm.

Re-starts are solely the referee’s decision. If the game cannot be restarted, it shall be replayed.

Any halted games in the month of April must be played before May 15, any halted games in May or June must be played before the last game of the season.

Forfeits will result if the game is not played within the make up period. An appropriate fine (8f) is charged when a game is forfeited.


Home coach will provide the away coach and each Town Coordinator with a list of three (3) different dates and times within 5 days of initial notification.

The away coach must respond within 5 days of receiving the dates.

If the coaches cannot agree, Town Coordinators must attempt to resolve the dispute.

If the Town Coordinators cannot agree to a date, the matter will be forwarded to the Standards Committee.
