Let the games begin!

This email contains important reminders as well as information looking forward to spring.

If you have NOT paid your referee fees - THEY are PAST DUE.  

RESCHEDULES

· Each team is only allowed two reschedules each season. Not two that are fee free and then additional ones where you pay a fee. THE MAX ALLOWED IS TWO!

· Please note that beginning with the spring 2019 season any request to move the game date, start time or location will be considered a reschedule and must be processed through the system.

· Any reschedule must be completed no later than five (5) days prior to the date and start time of original game. (This includes the opposing team accepting the reschedule). 

If the reschedule button is no longer visible - you have missed the window to reschedule the game and we are unable to restore the button or reschedule the game for you. 

For example: Game scheduled for Saturday August 18 at 8:00 a.m. would need to be rescheduled and accepted no later than Monday August 13 at 8:00 a.m.

AIR QUALITY RESCHEDULES

UYSA is committed to providing a safe environment for all of our players, coaches as well as referees at games and practices. There are many different news and reporting sites that report on our Air Quality. UYSA will be monitoring the air quality across Utah. You can check the current air quality at http://air.utah.gov. If the location where the game is scheduled to be played is in the red zone UYSA will allow a game to be rescheduled. Coaches will need to call into the UYSA Offices to request this type of reschedule prior to the game. We recognize that yellow is unhealthy for sensitive groups and would encourage coaches to communicate with their players and parents for a decision for the individual players on your team.

YEAR ROUND PREMIER TEAMS

DO NOT Reschedule spring games. The schedule will be finalized based on field availability in the spring and you will have a two-week window to make a max of two reschedules prior to the season starting.
