The Lehigh Valley Youth Soccer League's reschedule request rules and procedures beginning with the 2018/2019 seasonal year have been updated. These rules of play are available on the LVYSL website. All club and team personnel should familiarize themselves with the rules and procedures regarding the rescheduling of any game on the LVYSL schedule.
There are FIVE (5) allowable reasons to reschedule a game:
Provisions may be made to change schedules for the very rare instance where a higher priority was not planned in advance.
Each team may have one discretionary reschedule, at a fee of $50, beyond the reasons stated above.
Requests to reschedule games for ANY other reason will be declined.
All reschedule requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and MUST include the following information in this format:
The reschedule process must be initiated by contacting the opposing team as soon as possible and no later than 24-hours after a team becomes aware of the need to reschedule. Please check the FInes & Fees Schedules for not adhering to this.
Initial contact should be made via telephone call and not e-mail to ensure a timely response. Authorized representatives of the teams (coaches, assistant coaches, or managers listed on the LVYSL website) must come to an agreement regarding the place, date, and time for the rescheduled game before contacting the league to request the reschedule. Clubs should also take into account the league's directive regarding block scheduling when rescheduling games.
If the two coaches cannot agree upon a new date, time and location the requesting team should contact the league immediately and the games commissioner will arbitrate the dispute and have the final say as to when and where the game will be played.
Reschedules within the last two weeks of play must be submitted within 72 hours after the original scheduled game time.
If the change is approved, league officials will make the appropriate change on the LVYSL website and a confirmation e-mail will be sent to all team officials.
It is each team’s responsibility to understand and apply the league's rules accordingly. Any questions regarding schedule change requirements should be directed to the Executive Director.
New for the fall 2017 Lehigh Valley Youth Soccer League is the new Discretionary Reschedule policy. This policy allows every team in the league’s current season to reschedule a game for any reason outside of the allowable reasons listed above for a $50 fee. A few criteria must be met:
