HOW DO I SCHEDULE MY HOME TEAM HOST GAME?
Teams matched up in a home team host game must communicate and mutually agree on a date that is scheduled by the SCHEDULE BY DATE AND played NO LATER than the PLAY BY DATE . The team listed on the top of the bracket is the Home Team and the game should be played at their location (unless the Home Team fields are not available or a large distance of travel would be required for one or both teams. In that case, the game should be held at a neutral and equidistant location.) If team cannot mutually agree, the Cup Director will make a final decision on where and when the match will be held.
All State Cup / Presidents Cup matches are required to be scheduled by the listed Schedule by date. Any game not scheduled by the Schedule by deadline will be FINED $50 PER TEAM PER DAY.
Once an agreement is made about the match, they should email the following to email@example.com
DO NOT EMAIL BACK & FORTHS BETWEEN COACHES TO IYSA. ONLY SEND EMAIL ONCE THE DATE IS FINALIZED.
