Fall 2017 Registration Information

Fall 2017 Registration Information

Dear PCJSL membership,

Registration for the Fall 2017 is just around the corner so I’m sending out some important dates for everyone to get set up in their calendars. This information will also appear in the Fall 2017 Handbook that we expect to have posted at PCJSL.COM in the next couple of weeks. The Application for Fall 2017 will also be opened up near the end of June.

As you think about the upcoming season and read through the information below, please pay close attention in the Play Dates information about Black-Outs – this season there will only be one blackout date allowed on the application, but we have provided a process for you to follow if you need a second blackout date to attend a tournament.

If you have questions about the information below, please contact me at pcjsl.scheduler@gmail.com or Jeff Welliver at pcjsl.vpcomp@gmail.com.

Hope you are having a great summer!

Maggie Barton
PCJSL Scheduling Coordinator

Game and Season Information
Fall 2017

PCJSL looks forward to the Fall 2017 soccer season as we continue moving forward with changes to improve your soccer experience in the 2017-18 season! Please see the important dates below so that you can have your teams registered for the Fall 2017 event. It is extremely important that we adhere to this schedule in order to allow appropriate time for the scheduling process, so please understand that we won¡¯t be able to make any exceptions to these dates.

For both flighting and scheduling feedback, we have developed a Google Form that must be filled out completely and submitted before we can consider your input. Emails, text messages and voicemails will not be utilized to make adjustments to the flighting or the draft schedule. Please help us do a better job giving you what you want by using these forms to provide us with the information we need. Links to feedback forms will be sent by email as they are created and will also be posted at PCJSL.COM.

FALL 2017 Play Dates

It is PCJSL’s desire to schedule six games for all teams during the Fall 2017 event.

U15 – U19 Play Dates
Allowed one Saturday blackout date

Sep 9, Sep 16, Sep 30, Oct 7, Oct 14, Oct 21, Oct 28, Nov 4, Nov 11

Due to the way this year¡¯s calendar falls (giving us only nine possible play dates for the older players), U15-19 teams will only be allowed one blackout date that can be used for a tournament or any other reason. To accommodate those teams wishing to attend more than one tournament during the season, a “free” (no fine imposed) reschedule will be allowed if the reason for the “reschedule” is to attend a tournament. Should you decide to utilize the “free reschedule” you must (1) provide proof of payment for the tournament you will attend; and (2) provide this proof no less than two weeks before the scheduled start of that tournament. You will also be required to work with your opponent to find a field, date and time to play the match you are rescheduling. This will not be done by the PCJSL Scheduling Coordinator.

U11 – U14 Play Dates
Allowed two Saturday blackout dates

Oct 7, Oct 14, Oct 21, Oct 28, Nov 4, Nov 11, Nov 18, Dec 2, Dec 9, Dec 16

U9/U10 Play Dates
Allowed one Saturday black out date in Play Block 2

Play Block 1 – Oct 7, Oct 14, Oct 21, Oct 28
Nov 4 – NO GAMES -re-flighting will occur between Oct 28 and Nov 11
Play block 2 – Nov 11, Nov 18, Dec 2, Dec 9, Dec 16

Due to this years calendar and our desire to again “re-flight” these youngest players mid-season, Play Block 1 will only have four play dates and no blackout date will be allowed. To accommodate teams wishing to attend a tournament during the month of October, a “free” (no fine imposed) reschedule will be allowed if the reason for the “reschedule” is to attend a tournament. Should you decide to utilize this “free reschedule” you must (1) provide proof of payment for the tournament you will attend; and (2) provide this proof no less than two weeks before the scheduled start of that tournament. You will also be required to work with your opponent to find a field, date and time to play the match you are rescheduling. This will not be done by the PCJSL Scheduling Coordinator.
