It has been a terrible winter weather-wise, and numerous clubs have notified the league that their fields will not be ready for the opening weekend of LIJSL LI Cup games. As we get closer to the opening weekend, we expect more and more clubs to notify us that their fields are unplayable.
Therefore, we WILL NOT open the season on the weekend of March 15-16. All LI Cup games scheduled to be played that weekend will be played on the following weekend March 22-23. The games will be played at the same time and field as scheduled for the original date. (For instance your Saturday, March 15 game is scheduled for 10:00 am on field 2, you will play this game on Saturday, March 22 at 10:00 am on field 2)
League Week One, scheduled for March 22-23, will move to League Week 10, which falls on June 14-15. They will be played at the same time and field they are scheduled for on March 22-23. (For instance your Saturday, March 22 game is scheduled for 11:15 am on field 3, you will play this game on Saturday, June 14 at 11:15 am on field 3)
For any team that has a Week 10 game scheduled to be played on June 14-15, these games will now be rescheduled. It is the responsibility of the home coach to reschedule the game with the opposing coach. Please try not to schedule these games on weekends that you might also have state cup or LI Cup games (if you advance). If the opposing team is close in distance, once it gets warmer and lighter you could look to schedule them on a week night.
The above notice only applies to the LIJSL LI Cup and League Games. It does not apply to ENY State Cup, ENY Premier League, Region 1 or Northeast Regional Premier league games. It is up to those organizations to notify you of any schedule changes or cancellations.
