Inter-club play for the Under-10 age division begins this Saturday, September 23.
It is each team’s responsibility to check the website schedule to make sure the contact information for your team is correct. If there are any mistakes or updates please let your club registrar know as soon as possible (they will inform the LISA office). In addition, inform your opposing teams so they will know how to get a hold of you.
While email addresses are included in your team’s contact information on the website LISA does not consider the sending of an email an official communication between teams. When exchanging game and field information there must be definite confirmation. “Read Receipts” are not considered definite confirmation. Initial contact with your opponent must be by phone.
Scores and standings are NOT recorded in the Under-10 age division. So you do not report results to a Lower Island score recorder as standings and scores are not posted on the LISA website. Inter-club competitive league play begins at U13.
Under-10 teams play 6v6, with 2 x 25-minute halves, using a size #3 or #4 ball. Their match day is Saturday and their start times vary.
If you are wondering why Home Fields are not listed on your schedule many clubs assign fields on a week-by-week basis depending upon how many home games they have and what fields are available for their use that weekend. In addition, some clubs rotate their teams through their various fields.
So Home Fields do not exist on the schedules. Besides team officials are supposed to be in contact with each other as their games approach in order to confirm their scheduling data. It does not matter which team, home or visitor, initiates the communication.
If a club does not have enough fields to accommodate all its home games the teams without an assigned field should contact their opposition to see if the “visiting” team’s club can supply a field in order to play the game. If the teams can not play their game because a field is not available at either club they should try to agree upon a date to make it up as soon as possible.
The schedule for the Under-10 age division lists games up to and including Saturday, March 10.
There are no games listed for Saturday, October 14 and 15, as LISA will be hosting its annual mini festival for all Under-10 teams. The festival will be played on fields supplied by co-host Peninsula. So even though there are no games listed on your weekly schedule your team will have games to play on the October 14 weekend. More details about the festival will be circulated closer to that weekend.
LISA will not be scheduling U10 games after the March 10/11 weekend.
Good luck with your games
Make it a fun and fantastic season for everyone
