2017 PRACTICE SCHEDULING


We will be using the same rules and protocol for practices as we have in the past (DO NOT ABUSE PRIVILEGES).  Questions or problems with the scheduler should be referred to:
     Travel Teams = Tony Zurawiecki (azurawiecki@yahoo.com) or Kara Judge (karajudge@me.com)
     Rec Teams =  Chris Garbowski (garbo411@verizon.net) or Jason Rutan (jasonrutan@aol.com

MANAGERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SCHEDULE GAMES
ALL GAMES WILL BE SCHEDULED BY THE EXEC BOARD


SCHEDULING RULES

  1. Practices must be booked through the online scheduler (link to the left), and can only be booked up to 7 days in advance
  2. Each Rec team is permitted (1) one-hour practice per week (week is Sunday - Saturday; a Rec team can have a two-hour practice if they partner up with another Rec team or plan a scrimmage with another Rec team
  3. Each Travel team is permitted (1) two-hour practice per week (week is Sunday - Saturday)
  4. Each Travel team is permitted a 2nd two-hour slot that can be booked in advance for a scrimmage only.  These can be booked more than 7 days in advance by emailing Tony Zurawiecki or Kara Judge.  For a scrimmage being booked within the 7 days, please book the time as a practice on the scheduler and then email Tony/Kara with the details to change it to a scrimmage on the scheduler
  5. All practices must be held at the appropriate field(s) that the division is allowed to practice on (more on this below)
  6. Please avoid practicing on a field that later in the day has a game scheduled on it
  7. The "24 Hour Rule" can be used to have an extra practice during a week -- if an open time slot on any field falls within 24 hours of current time then you may book it regardless of whether you already had a practice scheduled the same week (if you do not have permission to reserve it then contact one of the people listed above and they can reserve it for you)


GUIDELINES

  • Only use the fields when we are permitted to use them (this information posted below and on the scheduler page for each field)
  • Everyone must have the permits for Thompson Park -- the Park Rangers can and will ask teams to leave the field if they do not have a copy of a permit in their possesion; the MTBA will provide all managers copies of permits for all Thompson Park fields when they are released to us by Middlesex County
  • Certain divisions can only use certain fields for practices as defined below (unless using '24 hour rule' as noted above)
  • For convenience we will still allow managers that manage two or more Rec or Travel teams to have their teams practice back-to-back at any field, but please leave JMP Fields #1 & #2 for our 50/70 teams when there are other options available to you
  • Please be sure to adhere to the below guidelines for the JMP fields since only JMP #1 & #2 can be converted to a 50/70 layout (thus need to provide those teams as much availability as possible)
