If your team would like to fill in for one, or more of these games, please email email@example.com as soon as possible
We posted the final updated version of the schedules on Monday December 4th. You need to confirm receipt of the most updated schedule to James if you haven't already to firstname.lastname@example.org.
During your registration process you have 3-4 weeks to turn in schedule restrictions. Then after the schedule was posted we took schedule conflicts for 4 days, not guatanteeing we could adjust them, but took them into consideration. James and myself spent over 300 man hours on these schedules and worked with everyone to put out a good schedule for all.
In the past we have been more than accomodating on working with teams to help make their games. Over the last 3 years teams have started taking advantage of this - canceling games because the coach is missing, a few select players were missing, birthday parties, etc. This year we will not be doing this. If you cannot make your game you MUST follow the reschedule policy or your team will be fined $50 (James will send this out tonight). You will take a forfeit for that game and will be considered for removal of the league. This is not fair to the teams who do follow the schedule and show up each game, to the site directors who have to pay rentals up to $75 per hour, the officials who have time invested and to the league who has spent countless hours on the schedules. We have other things to do to operate the league besides rescheduling games and also have families.
When you ask to reschedule a game it doesn't involve just you and the other team, it affects two other teams we have to get to move, their 15 - 20 families and several others. It is also a very tidious and time consuming job. I will be very strict with this this winter. I apologize if this upsets you but we cannot operate a league this was any longer. If it is a league mistake or something we fell is justifiable we will consider it but there isn't much that follows under this. If you have any questions feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Coaches, please confirm your game(s) this weekend by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your team names, game times and locations. Please confirm you have received your complete schedule at that time as well. There are still a few teams that are not scheduled all 10 games. We will be reaching out to these teams individually to see when these can be played. Tomorrow, we will send out any important information, including our weather/conflict policy. The schedule is now final and we will be handling any conflicts that arise with those individual teams, more info on this will be included in our conflict policy. To report scores, please visit: https://www.swohiosports.com/leagues and scroll to the bottom of the page to report your score, please do so the day of your game. Only the winning team will need to report the score and all reported scores will be posted throughout the following week. Please Click Here to view a set of our league rules.
Tentative schedules will be posted by 11am today. We have put over 150 hours of man hours working on these and reviewing them. We tried to honor all schedule requests but there were some rare occasions we couldn't honor them. This usually occurred when the team you are playing had opposite requst. We also was trying to avoid any team having more than one bye weekend unless you requested off certain weekends.
AT THIS TIME WE NEED YOU TO CONFIRM THAT YOU RECEIVED YOUR SCHEDULE BY EMAILING US AT JDEATON.ATHLETICS@GMAIL.COM. ALSO PLEASE CONFIRM YOUR GAME FOR THIS WEEKEND TO THE SAME EMAIL BY SENDING TEAM NAME, DATE, TIME & LOCATION OF GAMES THIS WEEKEND.
If you have any iissues with your schedule please email email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review them and see what we can do. We cannot guarantee anything at this time, but like we have the last 28 years we will do the best we can. This year we will be strictly enforcing the penalties for teams who fail to show up for their game or cancel their game without proper notification. We will send out our reschedule policy later tonight along with a copy of the league rules.
At this time we need all contact info for each team if you have not sublitted it. Also all rosters are due this week. You can make adjustments to your schedule until December 31st, but any additions to your roster must be submitted befgore that player plays in a game. A player may play on more than one team as long as they are in a separate division. You can go on Exposure to submit your roster or you can email it to email@example.com but it must be done this week if you haven't already.
ALL LEAGUE FEES MUST BE PAID BY NOON TUESDAY NOVEMBER 28TH! YOU CAN EITHER PAY ON THE PAYPAL LINK AT www.swohiosports.com, YOU CAN VENMO TO @SOUTHWESTERNOHIOBASKETBALL OR CASH APP TO $SWOHIOBASKETBALL.

We wanted to give everyone an update on this year's winter league.
We have set up the divisions, put in everyone's schedule requests into the program and will be done with the first version of the schedule tonight. Starting tomorrow we will start reviewing the schedules and make the necessary changes and will hopefully complete this process by Thursday morning. At that point we will review the gym schedules to make sure everything looks god and have them down to final tentative version on Saturday. This will gove us 2 days to get with some of the larger programs to make sure we are on same page. The planis to post the schedules Monday November 27th and email coaches with them that day.
The 2nd and 3rd grade boys are being scheduled under the same link but in different divisions. Please understand that 2nd grade teams are playing other 2nd grade teams and same for 3rd. The reason we scheduled them under smae link is in case we need to adjust schedules after Christmas break to have stronger 2nd grade teams play lower 3rd grade teams. We also scheduled all the girls leagues under the same link so we could do crossover divisional games when needed. We will revisit all schedules at Christmas break and make adjustments the league deems necessary at that time.
Some important dates:
November 27th League schedules released
League fees and rosters due
December 1 First day of games
December 22 - 31 Christmas Break
February 18 Last day for league games
February 23 - March 6 Post Season Tourney
Over the next 24-48 hours we will send out the final league rules and any other necessary items we fell you need. If you have not paid your league fees you can do so by paying through Paypal on this link https://basketball.exposureevents.com/210636/swob-winter-league/payments, sending through Venmo to @southwesternohiobasketball or to Cash App to $swohiobasketball. These fees along with rosters need to be turned in by November 27th or yoour team will be removed form the schedules that week. If you need to make arrangements to pay or drop off any of these items email Tom Sunderman at firstname.lastname@example.org or James Deaton at email@example.com.
