Spring 2017 Self Scheduling Meeting

Please read through this carefully.   ALL GCSL teams are required to attend the self-schedule meeting(s) on Sunday, January 29th at the Marriott Northeast.  If you cannot attend, you MUST send a representative.  The address for the 9964 South Mason Montgomery Road. The age / gender schedule is below.  You should be collecting any conflicts you have with your players so you will have a list of available dates when you come to the meeting.


10:00 – GU9, BU9 (12 divisions) 11:15 – GU10 & BU10 (14 divisions) 12:30 – GU11, BU11, GU13 & BU13 (13 divisions) 1:45 – GU12, BU12, GU14 & BU14  (14 divisions)
At this meeting you will schedule each of your matches using the following guidelines.  Be mindful we will be operating under the “Spirit of GCSL” cooperation.


  1. As you can see from the above times, we are on a tight schedule. You will have approximately 45 minutes to schedule your matches. I encourage you to contact your opponents now to TENTATIVELY schedule your matches. However, you must receive approval from the home field scheduler (who will be attending the meeting).
  2. Unless otherwise agreed upon by all teams in your bracket, divisions with: {5 teams will play 8 games}, {6 teams will play 7 games}, {7 teams, will play 6 games}, {8 teams, will play 7 games}, {9 teams, play 8 games}, and {10 teams will play 9 games}.
  3. Coaches will decide the home team.       If you play an even amount of games, you will schedule ½ as home games. If you play an odd amount of games, you can have no more than one extra home game. If you had 4 home games last season, you will be expected to schedule 3 this season.
  4. Each club will have a field scheduler at the meeting. Once you have decided on a date and time, the HOME team will check with their field scheduler to ensure that date and time slot is open.       Some fields will have dates and /or times blocked / unavailable due to tournaments or other events including TPL matches.
  5. Matches can be scheduled between March 1st and June 3rd. If you schedule a match before March 1st, your fields may not be ready and you might not have referees. So, if you schedule before this date, you will need to ensure your fields are ready and you have referees.
  6. After you have scheduled your matches, you will go to one of the computers we will have set up and enter your home games only. We highly suggest you bring your computer to use or you may wait in a long line. You cannot leave until you have entered your home games into the scheduling program. If you find you’ve made an error when entering your schedule, please email the original entered game information AND the revised information to tcincincy@fuse.net.
  7. The form can be accessed on any mobile device so please consider bringing your own tablet or computer.       We will only have a limited amount of computers available. We will give out the wifi password at the meeting.
  8. Approximate start times for weekend matches are listed below. Your field scheduler will have the final say on your game start time.
  9. Once your schedule has been set, you will not be able to change it.       Reschedules will be for rainouts or extenuating circumstances only.
  10. In the past, many teams asked if they could schedule more than one match on a weekend day. The answer is yes. OSYSA rules allow teams to play no more than 2 matches in one day though.       We did have a team schedule 2 games on a Saturday and 2 on Sunday, getting 4 of their 7 matches out of the way in one weekend. That left them more time for tournaments.
