Plan ahead. All games that you expect not to play must be preponed by two weeks.

Call opposing coach 3 weeks in advance for Columbus Day and Memorial Day weekend games. Even if you expect to play, the other coach may not.

There are no last minute cancellations by coaches. A game can only be cancelled by the referee or field coordinator due to weather conditions.

To reschedule a game, complete the following steps:

1. Check make-up time possibilities with field coordinator.
2. Call opposing coach to discuss possible days and times. Explore multiple possibilities.
3. Call field coordinator to schedule a field.
4. Confirm field and time with opposing coach.
5. Call referee coordinator to schedule a referee.

Note: Cambridge Youth Soccer follows BAYS rules (see BAYS Bylaws section 8 & 9, For last minute cancellations, the team creating the cancellation will forfeit the game. Plan ahead!
