WYSL Clubs and teams,
1) Attached is a form to permit teams to take advantage of "Extended Field Availability" this fall. The idea came from the President's meetings. This is a limited experimental program.
If a club has some unusual extra time available, a club team may look at the schedule for the fall, find a date when that extra time is available and ask if the opponent would rather switch a scheduled Sunday game to that extra time.
Please let your teams know about the program. All arrangements need to be done in the next week to minimize the impact on the complicated league schedule. This will not be an option during the season.
We will want feedback from the clubs and teams about the experiment.
2) All clubs with teams playing in the NY Cup should be aware that they may not postpone a league game for a *home* state cup game. The home team must schedule the cup game to avoid a conflict with the league game. If an *away* state cup game conflicts with the league game, we permit a postponement. In either case, the NY Cup organizers have agreed to be flexible and to allow the teams involved to arrange to move the cup game from the designated weekend to the prior or to the following weekend. Get an agreement. Tell the NY Cup.
If the game must be played on a league Sunday, the WYSL team must schedule to play the cup game in addition to the league game. At least
10 teams have already scheduled "double headers" and several have moved their cup game to another weekend. We wish all the teams success in the cup.
3) There is an updated preliminary master field schedule on the league website.
See you at the meeting!
