Hello Coaches,

I believe I have rescheduled all games that I have been asked up to 
April 17 (the games after April 17 will be scheduled as soon as all 
schedules are out). If you are still waiting for a reschedule please 
send me another email).

If you have problems with assigning matches on the spring league website 
there are some instructions here:

And here the official scheduling policy, if you have a game scheduled 
that does not follow this rule (in particular an early or late game 
against an opponent that comes from far away let me know, I might have 
overlooked one):

Note: All rescheduling requests for your home games need to be sent to 
me (and please don't ask for turf games on Sundays, we do not have 
access to turf fields on Sunday).

 From the District 2 Spring League coordinator:
> As a reminder, the D2 Spring season is a 9 match season, with all 
> matches scheduled on 9 Saturdays from 3/27 through 5/22.
> Only Divisions with an odd number of teams have D2 Spring League 
> scheduled matches on Sunday, 5/2 and Sunday, 5/23.
> The D2 Spring League is *NOT* a Sunday match day league.
> Teams that consistently change their match days from Saturday to 
> Sunday using player unavailability as the reason will not be accepted 
> into D2 Spring League the following year.
> Here are the policies that need to be followed for D2 Spring League 
> day and time assignment of home matches:
>     * ALWAYS consider where the opponent is coming from when assigning
>       home match times.
>     * Make every attempt to assign a match time of 9:30am or later for
>       an opponent that is traveling an hour or more to play at your
>       home field.
>     * DO assign the closest opponents as the earliest and latest
>       matches in the day.
>     * DO assign match times later in the morning or earlier in the
>       afternoon for the furthest opponents.
>     * DO NOT assign *ANY* matches on Easter (Sunday 4/4) or Mother's
>       Day (Sunday 5/9) without proof of explicit permission from the
>       opponent
>     * DO NOT shift a Saturday match to a Sunday match, based on your
>       home team request alone. Such a request MUST be accompanied by
>       explicit permission from the opponent to play the scheduled
>       Saturday match on the Sunday instead of the Saturday.
>     * The ONLY exception to the above is the case when the Home Club
>       is short on fields and is forced to assign some home matches on
>       Sunday in order to get all of the Club's HOME matches played
>       that weekend.
>     * As an alternative, consider playing the match on the Saturday at
>       the away team's field.
>     * Use the following procedure to get the field and time
>       assignments when teams wish to play at the away team field
>       instead of at the home team field:
>           o The home team MUST notify their Club Scheduler of their
>             intent to play the match at the away team's field.
>           o This enables the home Club Scheduler to avoid last minute
>             cancellation of home field and referee assignments or
>             worse - no show teams on assigned fields *with* referees.
>           o The away team MUST secure the field and time from their
>             Club Scheduler
>           o An email MUST be sent to the D2 Spring League Director
>             with the away team Club Scheduler authorization of
>             assignment of the away field for the match.
>           o Include the *Match #, Date, Age Group, Gender, Division*,
>             *and Team Name* of the match and the *date, time and field
>             to be assigned*.
>           o A copy and paste from the public schedule page that
>             contains the first set of information is best.
>           o The away team Club Scheduler MUST be included on the above
>             email
>           o CC' the home team Club Scheduler if known.
>           o The original Home and Away teams are NOT switched in the
>             schedule and on the website to maintain proper ownership
>             of responsibilities.
>           o The Home team is responsible for Referee and Field fees
>             for matches played at the Away team's field.
> Please be sure to adhere to these policies in the interest of all 
> teams playing in the D2 Spring League.
> Thank you for all your help in making the D2 Spring League a 
> successful experience for all the players and teams involved.
> -George
