Help the TVSC 03 Boys State Champions Reach Hawaii Regionals

Help the TVSC 03 Boys State Champions Reach Hawaii Regionals

Good Evening,

Below is a link to the TVSC 03 Boys Blue Go Fund Me page. This team won the State Championships for the second year in a row. They are trying to raise money to go to the Regionals in Hawaii.

Thanks to everyone for their support, keep up the great work on the fundraising. We are getting closer to our goal.

MARCH 10 GAMES POSTED – DEADLINE FOR FEEDBACK IS FEB 18

MARCH 10 GAMES POSTED – DEADLINE FOR FEEDBACK IS FEB 18

Dear Coaches, Team Managers and Team Contacts,

All match-ups for U9-U19 teams have been completed in GotSoccer for the Winter/Spring 2018 season. The next step in the process is assigning those matchups, which are already set on specific dates, to a field at a specific time on the specified date. If you log into your team’s GotSoccer account, you can see the dates where the games will be scheduled, but the only date that currently has games assigned to fields/times is March 10. All other games will simply show as “UNASSIGNED.”

My major concern over the next three days is March 10 because I need to get that date’s games into our assignor’s hands so she can assign referees. You will have until Sunday night, February 18 at midnight to let me know if there is a problem with March 10 using the form that is linked below:

https://goo.gl/forms/4byMqlCCCe4xhwKk2

Please do not call or email me about scheduling issues – use the form that you can access by clicking on the link above. On Sunday, Feb 18 at midnight, the March 10 schedule will be locked and any changes that need to be made after that will cause your club to be fined per the fine schedule posted in the PCJSL Administrative Handbook at PCJSL.COM.

If you see other issues with the dates of Unassigned Games (for example, I’ve placed one on a date that you blacked-out), please use the form to let me know about that also. I will do everything I can to resolve those issues as quickly as possible using another date later in the season. The U9-14 season has its last Play Date on March 31, and the U15-19 season has its last play date on May 12.

For the older kids, I know that ACT and SAT exams are coming up and I also know that those exams are scheduled far in advance, so please find out NOW if your team will have an issue related to one of those exams. I cannot fix it for you if you wait until the week before the game. In fact, once I lock a date on the schedule, even if I can figure out a fix, your club will be fined based on how far out you notify me of the problem. PLEASE BE PROACTIVE and talk to you teams in advance. Your players have to register very early for these exams, so there’s no excuse for not knowing what dates will be a problem.

For those teams that plan to enter either President’s Cup or State Cup, please know that I will work with you to arrange PCJSL games around either of those tournament schedules. However, I need to know about your intention to play in one of those tournaments far in advance – not two or three weeks before I’ve scheduled you a PCJSL game and not AFTER one of those April/May dates has been locked. If you are playing in one of those tournaments you need to fill out the Schedule Problem form (the link above in this email) right now so that I can work around the dates now.

I believe that we continue to make progress with the scheduling process and I hope that what I’m doing makes things work better for you and your teams. If you have questions about any of this, please don’t hesitate to contact me at pcjsl.scheduler@gmail.com . And, if you decide to use an old email to reply to me, please change the subject line so that I at least have an idea about what you are asking.

Thanks, as always, for your continued help in making PCJSL a great place to play soccer.

Best,
Maggie Barton
PCJSL Scheduling Coordinator

Now that March 10 is published, I’ll start working on March 17 and continue through the calendar as quickly as I can. I will always give you at least 72 hours notice before I lock a date, so please make an effort to help me by checking your email more than once or twice a week.

Review Jan 20 schedule BEFORE 9pm Tuesday, Jan 9

Review Jan 20 schedule BEFORE 9pm Tuesday, Jan 9

Dear Coaches, Team Managers and Team Contacts,

The scheduling process is underway and, in fact, all matchups for this season’s 4 (four) scheduled games have been placed on dates based on the black-out information you provided when you applied for the Winter/Spring event.

The games for Jan 20 have been assigned to times and fields for that date and it is very important that you take the next 48 hours to review January 20 and let me know if you see a problem.

Please understand that a problem doesn’t include your failure to provide appropriate black-out information when you filled out the application. I cannot re-do the matchups at this point in time. If you cannot play on Jan 20 it is your responsibility to contact your opponent immediately and work out another date/time/field to make-up the Jan 20 match. It is possible that I may have room for the game on a Saturday date in the future, but you need to get your opponent’s agreement before you contact me to move the game. And, this must be done in the next 48 hours.

Many of you have asked me to accommodate situations where your team is sharing players with another team. I cannot begin to remember all of the teams involved and which teams need players for which other teams – It’s information that neither GotSoccer nor Maggie can keep track of. To the extent that I can make a minor change in the schedule to accommodate your need, I will try if you contact me with specific information. However, PCJSL policy does not encourage creating teams that don’t have enough players to play without borrowing from another team, so I cannot promise being able to fix all the issues you send to me.

For those of you who coach multiple teams, I’ll say something similar – I’ve tried to de-conflict the schedule so that you don’t have your teams playing at the same time, but it’s not something I can always fix because of the large number of you with multiple teams. All coaches are required to have another AYSA approved adult from their club who can be with their team(s) when they are unable to be there, so please keep that in mind.

Please don’t reply to this email with a scheduling issue. Instead, use the Google Form at the link below to notify us of an issue.

https://goo.gl/forms/kCGIu3vd5Ie7SeIi2

The only date I’m greatly concerned about is Jan 20 (so that it can be locked and sent to the assignor). Feedback about Jan 20 must be submitted on the form above no later than Tuesday, Jan 9 at 9:00pm.

For Unassigned Games after Jan 20, if there’s a black out issue related to a date that you REQUESTED, you may also submit that information now and I will fix it before I assign games to times and fields on the future dates.

If there’s a black out issue that was created because you didn’t request a black out, please contact your opponent immediately and get an agreement for a new date – the sooner you get this done, the easier it will be for you to get the issue fixed. If you need your opponent’s contact information, please let me know and I will email it to you. If you have trouble reaching your opponent, let me know so that I can at least remove your unassigned game from the date that won’t work for you.

I’m sorry to include so much information in one email, but there are a lot of “moving parts” to make the season happen and without your help, I can’t do it. I hope Jan 20 works as is, but if not, please let me hear from you soon.

Thanks,
Maggie
