Welcome to the 2019/20 Lower Island soccer season. Inter-club play for the Under-10 division begins Saturday, September 21.
It is each team’s responsibility to check their website schedule to make sure their team contact information is correct.
If there are any mistakes or updates please let your club registrar know as soon as possible and have your club registrar inform the LISA office. In addition you will need to 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.
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 as soon as possible 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.
Under-10 is a non-competitive division in the Lower Island district so you do not report results to a Lower Island score recorder as scores are not recorded and there will be no standings maintained on the LISA website. (Competitive league play begins at U14 for both boys and girls.)
In the Lower Island district Under-10 teams play 6 v 6. Each game will consist of 2 x 25-minute halves, and the teams will use a size #3 or #4 ball. Your match day is Saturday and your start times vary.
Your schedule for the Under-10 age division lists games up to and including Saturday, March 7, which is the end of the Lower Island season. There is a three-week winter break starting December 21 running through to January 4. Weekly play returns Saturday January 11.
NOTE: There are no games listed on your schedule for Saturday October 5 as that is the weekend of LISA’s annual mini festival. All teams in LISA’s inter-club U10 schedules (Boys, Girls) are automatically entered into the mini fest. So even though there are no October 5 games listed on your weekly schedule your team will have games to play on the October 5/6 weekend. The festival will be co-hosted by Peninsula FC and take place on fields provided by the Peninsula club. More details about the festival will be circulated closer to that weekend.
Good luck with your games
Make it a fun and fantastic season for everyone
