The opening date for classic travel has been moved to April 9th.
However, once schedules are published by the league commissioner, managers may change the date and times of games by mutual agreement. This includes playing games prior to April 9th, if both teams agree. Note that when commissioners generate schedules, the game times are system generated and not final. Home team managers must secure fields and referees, which will alter times.
No teams will be compelled to play on April 16 (Easter), April 30 (tournaments) and May 28 (Memorial Day). If teams agree, they may use these dates to play in advance or play a make up. There is no prohibition to playing on these dates, but teams cannot be forced to play (at risk of forfeit).
For certain leagues with an odd number of teams or less than 8 teams, commissioners may use April 30th as an assigned date. This is a placeholder for convenience. The teams are expected to reschedule by mutual agreement. Again, playing on April 30th is permissible assuming both teams agree.
Spring is often a complicated season for teams and players (vacations, school functions, religious ceremonies, etc.). Please be understanding and flexible in scheduling matches with your opponents. Utilize Saturdays and weekdays as alternate game dates. Managers should establish contact with opposing teams early in the season to set expectations. The overarching objective is to play all matches and have no forfeits.
A list of league commissioners is available on the website (see "commissioners" in the left-column menu).
