Teams must work together to request a change. It is assumed any request submitted was mutually agreed upon. If you are familiar with the game change request procedures, you can find the link to the online game change request in Step 3 below.
Refer to the POLICIES regarding approved reasons to reschedule games as well as canceling games so you will not be charged referee and penalty fees.
If you know that your team cannot make a scheduled game but are not sure of a re-schedule date yet with the other team, PLEASE submit a game change request ASAP for a date of 12/25/18 to temporarily move it off the schedule so that you are not charged no show/late notice, ref, etc fees. You can then resubmit a game change once you have worked out the details with your opponent.
Notification of the Need To Reschedule must be requested to the League at least 3 Full Business Days (72hrs) prior to the date the match was or is to be scheduled. Example: If the match is to be played on Saturday the 10th, the request to reschedule must be submitted before 7:00am start of business on Wednesday the 7th . Late Change Fees (referee and field fees***) will be charged for any games that are cancelled without the 3 Full business days’ notice. All requests to re-schedule may only be submitted via the online game change request.
***PLEASE NOTICE- IF YOU ARE SCHEDULED ON TURF YOU MUST GIVE A MINIMUM OF 2 WEEKS NOTICE or YOU WILL PAY A TURF ABANDONMENT FEE (min of $100). THIS APPLIES FOR THE ENTIRE SEASON!

To Submit a Game Change Request:
STEP 1: Email your opponent via our TEAM CONTACTS to find a mutual date to reschedule the game.
STEP 2: Check field availability under the Fields Menu on the website – Field availability changes constantly so it is best to submit more than 1 option. If the field availability is not posted, you may list a district and we will try to find a field. Game changes work best when submitted with a location, time, and field number.
You can also check our fields list to see what fields we are directly contracted with. You may certainly schedule at your own facility, but you must follow your own club/facilities protocol to do so. We will not pay for a facility that we do not already have under contract.
STEP 3: Then go to the ONLINE GAME RESCHEDULE REQUEST and enter the game number and details to submit your request.
STEP 4: If APPROVED, check the ONLINE SCHEDULE to VERIFY that all information for the game change is accurate. If the request is DENIED, we will send you an email back with a reason for the denial.
PLEASE NOTE: Game Change Requests will be addressed by date of play. For instance, dates of play in March will be addressed prior to games with dates of play in May. May dates could take weeks to get to depending on the number of game changes in March and April that are submitted.
If you are concerned about your game change request because the game date or reschedule date is less than 10 days away, please call our office at 614-436-6775.
