A rescheduled game shall be defined as a game whose site, time and/or date are changed in advance of playing. 

 All reschedules for U12 and above must be completed and the reschedule form submitted to the SSSL by 3/20/2015.  The Reschedule Form is available on the SSSL website on the Schedule page.   You can only reschedule 3 games (There are no fees for rescheduling a S.S.S.L. Memorial weekend game or a game whose graduating participants are involved in a High School graduation).

 The spring travel schedules are now available. The U10 schedules are posted for the 1st 3 weeks and the Friendship games.  The remainder of the season for U10 will be posted after the 1st 3 weeks of the season are complete as teams may be moved between divisions based on results.
