Message From the Scheduler

Hello Soccer Ladies!

The Fall 2016 schedule is almost done.  Please note that I have done my very best to get you in the location you’ve requested.  The times are based on when I can get those fields.  Some fields I simply cannot get until 8:30pm.  So if you requested that as your home area, that is when your game time is.  There are some 8:45pm games… but that is truly all I could get.  If they had earlier times to give me, I would take them!

This season, I got more emails from field schedulers saying that their youth programs (soccer, baseball (for dual purpose fields), lacrosse, and even flag football) have grown even more, so we have less field options available to us.  As one example: fields where I have typically been given from 3 to 6 fields per week, I now can’t get ANY until mid-November… and even then, I am only getting a much more limited number of fields per week.

I have been, and will continue, requesting fields from all of the avenues I have available to me.  And I try to be equitable with the fields I can get at earlier times, in the areas you’ve requested.   

There are BYE’s in divisions that have an odd number of teams.  And there are some games on weeks when others are not playing (mostly the end of the season).  Those games are because some teams requested BYE’s during the season, so I moved the game to the end, so you get your games in.  For some, however, there aren’t enough weeks to get all of the games in, so you will be refunded for any games that you paid for, but were not scheduled.  If there is a week where you don’t see your team listed, you DO NOT have a game that week.  If you are listed with another team but it says BYE in the field – the other team requested a BYE, so you don’t have a game that week. 

Masters teams, you have an oddity at the end of your season because one team requested no games after Thanksgiving… so I did the best I could to get the rest of your games in.

Gold 1 and Gold 2 were combined this season (G1-G2), so there are 8 teams in that division.  For the first 7 weeks everyone will play each other once, then for the last 5 games you will only play teams in your normal division (G1 or G2 teams).  That means that (toward the end of the season) you will play the same team more than once in a few week time period… and you will play one team more than the others… but that’s what happens when there are only 4 teams in G1 and 4 teams in G2.

Out of a couple hundred games scheduled, I am still hunting for 8 fields.  Because of this, you MAY get fields outside of your home area.  I’m trying to find one in your area first, but if I can’t, I will schedule you where I can get a field, so you can get your game in. 

Please be aware that, if I CANNOT find a field (anywhere) for your game on your scheduled game day, you COULD get a Sunday game on your schedule.  So make your team aware of this, in the event that it happens.  I am really trying hard to avoid this, but it may come down to it.  WSWSA has done this in the past, when there were fewer turf fields.  Now there are a bunch of turf fields, but more youth programs to use them, so we’re in the same boat as though there are fewer fields.  I have much more flexibility to get decent fields/times on Sundays.  So at least that’s good news.   

I will post what I have of the schedule soon.  There will be some TBA games… those are the ones where I’m still hunting for fields.

Thanks for your patience!  And good luck out on the pitch!

Important Game Reminders

Important game reminder: if the lights do not come on, if the ref does not show, and/or if there is a forfeit - email Karrie, the scheduler at within 24 hrs. otherwise we may not issue a credit. Both teams should email (or copy each other), so we know they were aware of the situation.

No lights? Lights go out early? Many of the parks departments have phone numbers posted at the fields. Try and call - some have remote access and can get them on in minutes. We also have many of the field contact phone numbers listed at the top of the screen on our home page.

No referee??  Go ahead and play the game.  Games with no referee will not be re-scheduled.

Can't field a team at the last minute??  Contact the other team, immediately. Most team managers have contact information under the 'Team Contacts' tab on the left column of our homepage. Also, immediately notify the scheduler to see if she can cancel the field and the official assigned to the match. If you cannot find the opposing team's contact information, you can contact the Scheduler, Registrar, or any one of the Commissioners.

Also, please be aware that games at Starfire will have 40 minute halves, unless you have the last game of the night.  If you have a game with 40 minute halves, take the field at kick off time, don't wait for the referees while they get ready. Encourage the referee to only have a 2 minute half time and get back out onto the pitch.
