MNJ season League schedules are posted on the MidNJ website "standings and games" tab. They provide assigned game date, opponent and home team. Home team clubs then assign time and field for games. NPSC home game times and fields will be provided by NPSC via email to coaches and/or posted on NPSC website. Contact:
Once the season starts the schedules below will quickly become out of date. This is the ORIGINAL TEAM HOME game schedule. Any changes to team schedules as a result of reschedule requests or field closing, etc. will not be reflected here.
It is up to each team to maintain and update their respective team schedule(s), such as setting up your schedule in an MS Excel file, MS Word document, or using the Event Scheduling feature on the website. Each teams schedule should be maintained with all current home and away game information and should be provided / communicated to team as soon as available and with each update.
It is up to YOU to communicate with the opposing teams. You should get the contact information for all opposing teams (via People Search feature on MidNJ website) and let them know your HOME game date(s), time(s), location(s), and field directions as soon as you can. At this time you should also obtain your AWAY game information so you can complete your Team's season schedule with HOME and AWAY game details.
Please also tell your opponents that our home colors are Green/White (or Dark Green), so that they can tell you if you need to change colors for a home game.
Include your cell / home numbers and always check the the HOTLINE Number (888) 473-6875 ext 2 for Home game cancellations, or games moving from one field to another. Notify opponents of any game changes immediately.
When providing game details to opponents via email, always request a reply for confirmation of receipt of information.See Team Manager's Toolkit Tab on the Home Page menu for more details and sample emails.
All changes to game dates and times for HOME games must come to the Game Scheduler as a request for a change - so fields and referrees can be assigned based on availability. See Game Reschedules Tab.
If there is a change made to a team's HOME schedule by the Game Scheduler, the respective NPSC Team Managers and Coaches will get an email notification of the change.
Scheduling demands / field availability may require games to be scheduled prior to League recommended start of time of 11:30.

Set A Good Example - SAGE is MNJYSA’s program to instill good sporting behavior in all who participate in MNJYSA soccer activities. SAGE requires parents, coaches, and players to sign pledges committing to display proper conduct to Set A Good Example for all our participants. Additionally, teams registered to play in MNJYSA will appoint SAGE representatives who will be available to monitor behavior at games. MNJYSA will conduct orientation sessions for SAGE representatives to acquaint them with MNJYSA’s expectations concerning sporting behavior and to provide suggestions concerning how SAGE representatives can help foster that behavior. SAGE also provides that teams hold meetings to discuss sportsmanship policies of the respective club and preview sportsmanship materials (i.e. videos and/or printed materials establishing guidelines for parents and coaches about what is truly important in youth sports.
