Level 3 Coaches Scheduling Info
Scheduling for this will work a little different and your teams will be testing a new theory for us on scheduling games.
We have temporarily placed games on dates on the schedule. If these dates work for your team, then we will not need anything from your team. However, if you see dates that do not work for your team then you have a chance to reach out to the opponent to pick another date to play this game. This ensures your team flexibility to schedule your games.
We have attached a help guide that will help you find contact information. Once both teams have agreed to this date please submit the NYSL Self Schedule Change Request Form.
This form can be found under the League America tab of the NSYL website.
We ask that your team only selects AM or PM if it is necessary on those dates.
Please make a note that are start times for League America is Saturday 9AM, 1030AM, 1200PM, 130PM, 300PM, 430PM, 6PM and on Sundays 1200PM, 130PM, 300PM, 430PM, 600PM.
If you pick a weekday, then we will start between 630pm-7pm based on the sunset.
Home teams does not necessarily mean your team will play at your home location we have teams that travel 90 minutes just to play at a neutral site so those game will be in those locations.
