Junior Schedules are now posted, and CLUBS can schedule the games. This needs to be done quickly, as teams have limited time to deal with schedule conflicts. Do not wait to hear back from coaches on requests, please schedule the games on the fields and let the coaches notify you if they need changes. USA promised the coaches that this would be done by September 27.
The Time line is as follows:
Sept 16 to Sept 27 Clubs schedule home games, by placing them on fields at a designated time. They also can move any Junior Season home game to any day or time agreed upon by the coaches. Here is the link to the instructions. http://usa-soccer.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/entering-club-in-league-and-scheduling-games.pdf. When scheduling games please take into consideration the travel time of the away team, and do not schedule early games for teams that have to travel a long distance.
Sept 28 to Oct 4, Clubs can MOVE any home game to any date and time agreed upon by the coaches, as long as they are completed by March 31. Here are the instructions to moving the date of a game. http://usa-soccer.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/The-process-of-moving-a-game-date-is-easy.pdf.
Any club found moving a game from the original date without the away team’s permission will have the game moved back.
Teams can use the chat function in the team account to communicate with other teams, since the communication is in the team account. http://usa-soccer.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Team-Account-Updates.pdf.
ON October 5 ALL SCHEDULES WILL BE LOCKED, AND CLUBS WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO MOVE GAMES. TEAMS WILL USE THE GAME CHANGE REQUES IN GOT SOCCER TO REQUEST TOMOVE ANY GAME. Those must be completed more than 21 days before published game day. Here is the link to those instructions, http://usa-soccer.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Game-Change-Request-from-the-team-account-time-change-only.pdf
Teams will play a schedule of home V away. Most divisions will have 8 teams and 14 games. Teams may schedule these games at any time prior to March 31, but all games must be initially scheduled by Sept 27.
