Games (Home) 5 games a season Referee/s are paid by the league’s Arbiter system Games are originally schedule around coaches with multiple teams Invoiced at end of season for extra games Games only can be changed under even guidance Scrimmages Responsibility is the teams to schedule Use Arbiter and Field Permits to determine available times Once confirmed with other team submit a field request form On Form, indicate the opponents name & if you need referee(s) Referee/s are paid cash by the team at the field State Cup Same process as a Scrimmage expect referee(s) are paid through Arbiter Invoiced at end of season for these games

26 Rescheduling Games Agreements & Policies
Mutual agreement Done 7 days in advance (AFC prefers 14 days) Must verify field/time using Arbiter and Field permits before submitting field request form Non-Mutual agreement Valid reasons for a reschedule without mutual agreement Inclement weather Field unplayable, as determined by the club or league field scheduler Field unexpectedly unavailable, as determined by the club or league field scheduler After the "black-out" submission deadline, a team is accepted into a sanctioned USYS or US Club weekend tournament or CYSA ODP State tryouts Home team shall provide 3 dates and times and away team shall pick one Do NOT just change time Almaden FC Policy Cancelation of a game after Wednesday evening (week of the Match) requires the league to pay the referee(s) and counts towards one of your season games.

27 Rescheduling Games “Excuses” and Solutions
We recommend the following solutions to frequently posed problems: Too many players missing (sick, testing, etc.) Remember that any player from your club is available to participate with your team as long as they are of correct age. In league matches please use 2nd team players or players from younger teams within your club to fill out your roster Missing Coach Any coach with a valid pass for your club is able to coach any team in that club. If your coach has several commitments then it is recommended that teams have an assistant coach or another coach from the club available to cover games No Fields Available It is expected that if your team is playing in NorCal that your team has a quality field and access to field’s. This excuse will not be acceptable for a cancellation of a match. Away Game Cancellation and Forfeit Policy Teams must give their opponent a 96-hour warning if forfeiting an away match or they will be required to pay field and referee costs. Please remember that this is a club competition and not an individual team competition!

28 Game Day Expectations Ensure that your players are entered into the event system Check website to ensure no field closures Print referee(s) contact information from Arbiter Print three (3) game cards First game of the day Pull out goals and secure them in place Put out corner flags (Stored in green storage container) Last game of the day: Put goals back and lock them Place rest of items (Corner flags) into green storage container and lock If you find yourself with less than three (3) referees 15 minutes before the game, speak with the other referee(s) regarding contacting the missing referee(s). Player passes should be returned to you after check in. If a scrimmage, pay referee(s) at the end of the game End of game, put the score in the event system
