SWOB - Spring League Schedule

Coaches,

Two things:

1. There has been way too many cancellations and forfeits the last 2 - 4 week. This causes more than inconvenience for the league but rather creates an issue for the gyms, the oppnonents, their families and the officials. Other families are inconvenienced when a game is forfeited or cancelled late as they may have other plans with their other family members that they are missing out on. The officials still need to be paid for their time away from their families. The gyms are out worker costs, utility cost, missed income and time for their managers.

So when you cancel it isn't as simple as a friendly call. Tell your parents to coomunicate earlier and let them know they committed to the team and league. Every Monday I send out an email to all my 5th grade, 8th grade, and all the Kings parents to confirm who will and will not be at practice and games for that week, They must let me know in case we need to get subs, and gives me time to arrange that. Set up a communication chain for your teams.

2. I sent info about the spring league tourney out earlier this week and only 11 teams have responded. We must know who is and is not playing in the tourney. It will be held May 31 - June 6. This info shold be emailed along with any conflicts to tom_sunderman@yahoo.com.

The spring league tourney will be held May 31 - June 6. Games will be played at Landmark, Friars and Sports of All Sorts.

It is a one and out tourney which coaches are responsible for the ref fees. The tourney brackets will come out around Monday May 27th. They will be SOMEWHAT seeded based on scores reported as of May 23rd. If you have scores not turned in and you won or lost email them to tom_sunderman@yahoo.com and we will get them entered.

WE NEED TO KNOW WHO IS IN AND WHO IS OUT FOR TOURNEY ASAP. IF YOU HAVE ANY SCHEDULING CONFLICTS ALSO SEND THEM TO US ASAP. IF YOU FORFEIT DURING THE TOURNEY AND TOLD US YOU WERE PLAYING YOU WILL STILL HAVE A FORFEIT FEE. SO GET THIS INFO TOGETHER TO US.

Coaches,

We are 4 weeks into the spring session and the calls to reschedule games and the number of teams calling to cancel at last minute are starting to increase. James and myself have tourneys we are running every weekend, a 140 team spring league to run, and our own program with 32 teams to oversee. It is not easy for us to spend every day rescheduling games. It also takes about 8 - 10 phone calls and obvious waiting on other teams to see if they can move, taking up alot of our time.

We understand we offered both weeknights and Sunday options, but we also tried to match teams up to the best of our ability competitively. Due to this we have some overlapping on what day you play. We did send out an email or two asking everyone to confirm their schedule and most of you did. I know things come up with baseball and rain, school events, and other sports but we want to get these games in for the kids.

We are asking you to work with us to make sure these games go on as scheduled. When you want to move a game it involves more than just you and me, but it also could affect as many as 30 - 40 families. We have attached the reschedule policy for the league. Please look over this and let us know if you have any questions. Please try to adhere to this so we can make sure that all games happen.

SCORES - the winning team is responsible to report the score. The gyms try to record them for us, but sometimes mistakes get made or facility directrs get tied up and can't get the score. You can go to our website www.swohiosports.com to report a scoe under the LEAGUE tab or you can use this link to report it. https://www.swohiosports.com/report-score

If you have any other questions please sne them to tom_sunderman@yahoo.com or to jdeaton.athletics@gmail.com.

Hi coaches. If you have not already, please confirm that your team has recieved the first week schedule by emailing jdeaton.athletics@gmail.com and tom_sunderman@yahoo.com as soon as possible. We have only received confirmation from about 1/3 of the teams scheduled to play the first week. We want to try and combat no-shows as much as possible the first week. If your team is not scheduled, or is already on the schedule and wants another game, please let us know and we may be able to fit them into the schedule. An UPDATED first week schedule will be posted by 4:00 PM tomorrow (Saturday) with any changes for the first week, but we will try and keep any changes to a minimum
