4. SCHEDULE CHANGES
Schedule changes are inevitable as a result of bad weather, unanticipated field closures, etc. However, once the MDSL schedule is officially posted for the season, it is considered primary compared to other events such as tournaments and outings.
When registering your team, you must specify the date and\or weekends that your team may not be available for league play so these dates can be considered when making the schedule.
If you have more than three (3) dates that your team can not participate, please contact the league director to see if you team can be accepted to participate.
After the scheduled has been posted, club representatives must follow procedure when requesting game changes:
1. Field and time only changes – The league reserves the right to move games as needed with the proper email notification to the participants at least 72 hours from the original schedule. The only purpose for these changes are to facilitate referee assignment.
2. All other changes – If there is a need to change the date or time of a game, this needs to be a mutual agreement by both coaches and done through email communication. All modifications of this type must be completed at least ten days in advance of the game.
3. Fees for changing games – a) Request to change a game after the official scheduled is posted $ 50.00 payable before the change is made.
b) Request to change a game less than 72 hours from the original schedule $ 100.00 (The fee includes both referee fees for the original scheduled game. Please note that the referees are assigned at least 96 hours prior to the games.
GAME CHANGES NOT APPEARING ON THE ON-LINE WEBSITE ARE NOT APPROVED.
