Instructions to Set Contact Info on Website to Public
Managing Team Game Schedules
Team Managers and/or Coaches, upon receipt of full or partial game schedules from NPSC, are then responsible for the following as it relates to game schedules:
Create their own team master schedule or calendar of both home and away games.
Request away game information from opponents hosting their game at home. See sample correspondence to opponents below. Note: Opponent contact information can be found on the respective League websites under contacts or on an individual club’s website. (It is also suggested that NPSC Coaches and Managers update their contact information on the NPSC website and set contact information to “public” so opponents can find your contact information.)
Update their schedules throughout season with times and location of all team games as each game is confirmed. Note: Team schedules posted on the Schedules tab of website will not be updated by NPSC Game Scheduler. It is the team’s responsibility to keep their own team’s schedule current.
Communicate schedule and updates to own team by posting on team page on NPSC website or via email.
Notify all opponents of date, time, location, color of uniforms, manager cell phone number, and directions for NP home games and request opponent confirmation of receipt of game information. See sample correspondence to opponents below.
Reconfirm all home and away games the week of game.
Note: When contacting opponents, team managers and coaches should not offer to change times / dates of games when providing the home game schedule. NPSC teams and opponents should assume the published NPSC home game schedules are final. Requesting a confirmation from opponents that they received the game information serves as a type of acceptance/agreement to the schedule. See attached sample Game Schedule correspondence to opponents.
If an opponent requests a reschedule, it should be at the start of the season, when NPSC home game information was provided to opponent. Reschedules a week or two before game should be discouraged.
If a reschedule of a NPSC Home game is unavoidable:
Ask the opposing team to give you 3 possible dates that work for them.
Check all three dates with your team’s game schedule, if any of those dates don’t conflict with your current game schedule, then,
Check with your own team on availability / capability to field a team on those dates and ask team to hold those dates for a possible game.
Provide the “final” 2 viable dates for both team to NPSC scheduler, following the reschedule request procedures posted on the Game Reschedule Requests tab of the Game Schedules section of the website.
At that time, the NPSC Game Schedule will offer you available date, time and field option(s) based on your request.
Provide opponent NPSC selected day/time option(s).
Get agreement/confirmation from opponents within 2 days or sooner on rescheduled game date/time.
Notify NPSC scheduler of confirmed date and timeslot with opponent.
Scheduler will place game on NPSC home game schedule/reserve field and referees for game.
Remind coaches and team to check NPSoccer Club Hotline (888) 473-6875 before EACH and every home game, as game changes may be necessary/occur even in fair weather.
