NOTE:  Games will NOT normally be re-scheduled for reasons other than inclement weather. However, well before the start of the regular season, each Coach should survey their players as to any game dates that may cause a conflict with school-sponsored events and result in the team not being able to play a game. After identifying these dates, the coaches should inform the schedule coordinator. This must be done prior to the completion of the League schedules.
