Scores cannot be changed once it is entered, so if you report the wrong score, or disagree with the score reported by your opponent, please contact the NSL office and I will fix it. The referees file reports and their score will be used.
Games may not be changed or moved, even by mutual consent of the coaches. Games may be moved by the league office in the event that the originally scheduled field is unplayable or unavailable.
There are two exceptions to this rule. All 12U Blue section teams and Division 1 teams are allowed one postponement per season to attend a tournament. These postponements must be requested in advance.
We will also allow a postponement if a significant number of the players have an academic commitment, such as a trip to Washington DC. These must be cleared in advance with the NSL office.
Teams involved in State Cups also may have one postponement of a spring league game.
There could be two reasons for this. The league has a 6-0 cap on goal differential, so if your teams wins by more than that differential only 6 goals will be counted. The other is that a forfeit is involved and forfeit tie break rules are in effect.
That’s up to the referee at the field. He or she is the only person who can determine if the cast might be potentially harmful to either the player or other players on the field.
