Field Requests and/or Changes

 Team PRACTICES are scheduled by the Technical Director and will be communicated to Team Managers and coaches, generally, by March 1st for spring, August 1st for fall

  • LEAGUE HOME GAMES are scheduled by the league – NorCal  - and further coordinated by the AFC leadership team for field and referee assignment.

In short, almost all team practices and league games are coordinated on your behalf.  

As it relates to fields, there will be just a few instances that require your intervention or involvement.  For each, below is a detailed process checklist and outline to follow.

Home Game Changes

Step 1:    Check AVYSL Field Permits for at least two (2) fields to ensure there is a permit for your preferred date & time.  On the left-hand bar, you will find Field Permits

Step 2:    Check Arbiter Sports to check field availability for each field in consideration

Step 3:    Contact opposing team Coach &/or TM via email to notify them that a change of date/time/location is being requested by you and provide them 2-3 alternate dates & times to select from.  Once you receive confirmation of mutually agreeable options, proceed:

Step 4:    Complete & submit AVYSL Fields Request Form

Notes:      a)     Be sure to include field warm-up time when booking request

                        -- usually 45 min. prior to start of game

                 b)     Game times are booked at the following start times:  9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm

Step 5:    Wait to CONFIRM new date/time & location of Home Game with your team and opposing team until confirmation is received from Almaden FC via email

Step 6:    Re-check Arbiter at least 48 hours before scrimmage to confirm assignment of referees & that there have been no changes to field assignment

 Contact Referee assignor if there are issues with referee assignment

Away Game Changes

Step 1:    Contact the opposing Team Manager &/or Coach no less than 10 days in advance of the scheduled game to notify them that you are requesting a change to the game day &/or time.  It is often helpful to cite a reason (e.g. coach/schedule conflict, tournament participation…)

It is often helpful to suggest 2-3 days in which your team can reschedule the game.

Step 2:    Once the opposing team has confirmed a mutually agreeable change in day/time &/or location, please update/communicate with your teams (e.g. update TeamSnap)
