D2 League Presidents and CCSL Reps, 


Please forward to your teams and field schedulers (this may be a duplicate 
email for some....but better that than missing anyone along the way).

There are two items included:
scheduling instructions for District 2 teams and a more general scheduling 
document.

DISTRICT 2 CCSL SCHEDULING 
INSTRUCTIONS
Welcome to the fall 2011 CCSL 
Season!
The CCSL Committee is excited about the 
upcoming season and we thank you for joining us to create the largest and most 
competitive playing league in Northern California. 
Creating a true state-wide league is a 
challenge as we incorporate existing processes and procedures for the nine 
districts.  This has slowed our communications plan somewhat and for that 
we apologize and promise to do better!  However, we believe you will be 
pleased with the enhancements for District 2 teams that will improve the 
competitive experience this fall.
GAME SCHEDULING:
All age groups: Coast 
Section Copper, Bronze and Silver:
refer to instructions available on ccslcoast.org
U12-U15: Bay Region (Silver Elite and 
Gold): all games are played on home fields; each 
club field scheduler is responsible for entering game time and location for all 
club teams on calsoccerleague.org and each club scheduler has been sent a 
single club-specific login to the site (see below for instructions)
Bay Region and Premier U16-U19: the District 2 board agreed that all 
U16-U19 Silver Elite, Gold and Premier games will be played on neutral fields 
(Morgan Hill or Skyline/Jefferson) unless both home and away teams agree to home 
fields, with the following exception:
U14-U19 Teams from Districts 6/7/8 vs. 
Teams from District 2:
All games played between teams from these 
districts in Premier, Gold and Silver Elite will be scheduled in Ripon or Morgan 
Hill, unless both teams agree to play at “home” fields.  Unfortunately, 
there isn’t an easy way to figure out which teams belong to which District! I 
hope you know the District 1 and 2 clubs, and I have attached a table of the 
majority of the clubs from outside Districts 1 and 2 that are playing Bay and 
State Premier.  If you have a question, feel free to email me.
If the District 6/7/8 opponent agrees to 
a “home” game, we STRONGLY encourage District 2 teams to schedule at Morgan Hill 
in order to facilitate the highest quality of officiating.

In order to minimize travel and to assign 
the highest quality officials to the Regional and State Premier games, CCSL/CYSA 
has rented central fields for CCSL League play (at no additional cost to those 
teams) when the travel distance between the teams is 
excessive.
Districts 6, 7 vs. Districts 1, 
2: All games played 
between these districts in Premier, Gold and Silver Elite will be scheduled in

CCSL Members,
The Premier, Gold and Silver 
Elite teams have now been given the contacts for the teams in their brackets and 
the attached Competition Administrator contacts, and with a few minor edits the 
message below. Iwanted you to get the same information so we are all on the same 
page. If any of you need any of the bracket contact sheets, please let me know 
and I can send them to you.  I will now begin putting an email list 
togeather for the club scheduling coordinators.

CCSL SCHEDULING INSTRUCTIONS
FOR TEAMS AND COMPETITION 
ADMINISTRATORS
 
Welcome to the fall 2011 CCSL 
Season!
 
The CCSL Committee is excited about the upcoming season and 
we thank you for joining us to create the largest playing league in Northern 
California.  This communication is the first of several that will assist 
you in the upcoming league play.
 
Contacting your opponents:
The 
CCSL Committee was not comfortable publishing everyone’s contact information on 
the public website so we have attached your bracket’s teams with contact 
information as well as the current list of Competition Administrators.  The 
Comp Admins are also listed oncalsoccerleague.org.
 
Game 
Scheduling:
In order to minimize travel and to assign the highest quality 
officials to the Regional and State Premier games, CCSL/CYSA has rented central 
fields for CCSL League play (at no additional cost to those teams) when the 
travel distance between the teams is excessive.
 
Districts 6, 7 vs. 
Districts 1, 2: All games played between these districts in Premier, Gold and 
Silver Elite will be scheduled in Ripon, unless both teams agree to play at 
“home” fields. Some other games where there would be excessive travel may also 
be played at Ripon.
 
Scheduling process for 
Ripon:
1.    CCSL Administration will post games as being 
scheduled at Ripon on Calsoccerleague.org without a 
time.
2.    The Ripon Administrator will assign times and 
referees
3.    League of Registration for the home team will 
be billed for referees
4.    If the “home” team needs to 
change the day (or mutually agrees to a rescheduled day) as approved by the Comp 
Admin, the Comp Admin will send an email to the Ripon Administrator with the 
indicated change
5.    See below for scheduling 
timeline
 
Scheduling process for home games:
1.    
If both teams agree to play at home, please email your Competition Administrator 
and copy home and away manager/coach as well as the home team scheduler with the 
game details
2.    Home team scheduler will change the venue 
from Ripon to the home field

 
 
Valley Region Teams: At 
times centrally located fields will be utilized for games to reduce excessive 
travel. Teams should contact their CCSL District Representative to request 
central fields scheduling for games which involve excessive travel 
distances.
 
Scheduling timeline and reasonable 
reschedules:
August 6        Schedules 
complete and ready for clubs to add location and time
August 
19      Clubs/Leagues to post fields and times for home 
games
August 29      Central field assignments 
complete
Sept 
5             
Deadline for submitting matches rescheduled by mutual agreement
Sept 
12          Deadline for submitting 
rescheduled match dates for valid reasons approved by the Comp 
Administrator
 
Please review the schedules carefully once they are 
assigned. You will have until Sept 5th to contact your opponent and reschedule 
any conflicts by mutual consent. If you cannot come to mutual consent and have a 
reschedule that fits the valid reasons below you will have until Sept 12 to 
submit the rescheduling conflicts to your Comp Administrator.
 
Per 
CCSL Rules, the only valid reasons for rescheduled matches 
are:
1.    Inclement weather
2.    Field 
unplayable, as determined by local authorities

unexpectedly unavailable

USYSA tournament and has provided 30-day written notice to

matches will be scheduled on the October date)

on SAT test dates must be scheduled to start no earlier than 3pm for the 
applicable age group

teams involved in the re-schedule prior to submitting to the appropriate 
competition administrator

District 1 or 2 vs. 
District 1 or 2:  The District 1 and 2 Boards agreed that U16 and older 
Silver Elite, Gold and State Premier games being played between teams from 
District 1 and 2 will be played at neutral fields unless agreed to by both 
teams.  This is to ensure appropriate officiating for this level of 
play.

Skyline College or Jefferson):

will assign times and referees

to change the day (or mutually agrees to a rescheduled day) as approved by the 
Comp Admin, the Comp Admin will send an email to the Morgan Hill or Skyline 
Administrator with the indicated change

Registration for the home team will be billed for referee fees (as established 
in CCSL Rules) and will then bill teams.

play at home, please email your Competition Administrator and copy home and away 
manager/coach as well as the home team scheduler with the game

We will follow 
up with instructions for printing game cards, reporting scores, guest player and 
other rules and anything else we can think of to make this a great season!  
In the meantime, please be sure to enter your complete and accurate roster 
(names as they appear on the player pass, jersey number, and CYSA 
number).

been a busy month here in CCSL-land.  I know you are eagerly awaiting the 
Bay and Premier brackets and schedules.  Unfortunately, we've had a few 
teams drop at the last minute, which has caused havoc with the seeding and 
schedules.  CCSL Director Bruce Sillars has been doing a fabulous job and 
has worked tirelessly to be sure every team is seeded to the best of our ability 
and that the schedules are correct and fair.   I have attached the 
most up-to-date bracketing and the CCSL committee meets tomorrow to approve and 
make schedules "live" on the website.  YAHOO!

ignore any brackets in the document called Coast anything—those were created to 
be sure we accounted for teams that were moved to Coast section (or some other 
reason we needed to "see" them).

> Neutral Fields: we will be 
sending instructions to club schedulers and teams for neutral (central) 
fields.  Teams from Valley will play teams from Bay at a central site 
(probably Ripon) with fields and referees centrally assigned.  We will have 
Morgan Hill (and qualified referees) and strongly urge all U15 and older teams 
to schedule matches there; CYSA/CCSL will pay the field cost and will bill the 
referee cost to the league of registration (teams will be billed by their 
league).  We are exploring a neutral field option further north since 
feedback is that the quality of officiating was best when there were consecutive 
games at the same age and level of play.
