    Rescheduling Games - CYSL Procedures (Spring 2019)

    Within five days of the delayed game:

    • Get in touch with the field coordinator ( Kevin Griffin) for field availability.
    • Reach out to the opposing coach with an offer for three suggested dates/times.  (This should be a discussion.)
    • Once an agreement has been reached, confirm with Kevin and contact Cassandra Healy and Jen Sjostedt for referee scheduling.
    • Other than a cancellation due to field conditions, an association is not obligated to reschedule a game solely due to opposing team numbers. 

    Please contact Cassandra Healey and Jen Sjostedt if you are cancelling a scheduled game so they can let the referees know.

    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. Notice of the Standards Committee decision shall be given in writing to both teams.


    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 April or May must be played by May 31st.

    Forfeits will result if the above procedure was not followed or games are not played within the make up period. An appropriate fine 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.
