How to reschedule a game or make a correction:

  • 1.       First contact the other coach and confirm the new time/date or cancellation.
  • 2.       From your team account find the row with “AR State Soccer Rec. League Spring 14”
  • 3.       Select “Request” under the “Support” column  (the last column)
  • 4.       Select “Open a Support Ticket”
  • 5.       Include all pertinent information (must include the game number)

Things to consider when scheduling games:

  • Field and referee considerations of the club
  • Teams are expected to honor home/away*
  • Teams/clubs are responsible for field usage fees when played at a neutral site**
  • If there is a team from outside the 65 mile radius (or even within it) consider scheduling a jamboree event with other teams in the bracket so that each team receives two games. 

*Home/Away:

The Arkansas Soccer Recreational League is a regional league with games scheduled throughout the Central Arkansas Area. The established travel radius for games is 50 miles, which is approximately 1 hour of interstate travel. Teams outside of a 50 mile radius of Little Rock are welcome to join the league, but with the understanding that some of their opponents may not want to travel outside of the radius to play.  Should that be the case, it is recommended that 1) the location of the game be moved to a mutually agreeable location or 2) the teams find other opponents to schedule with.
 
Teams are urged to work together for the good of the game to help those teams from outside the Central Arkansas area participate.

**Field usage fees for Burns Park: any team/club scheduling a game at Burns Park will be responsible for paying the field usage fee.
