Schedule Requests

I'm working on the schedule.  In general, I'm following these rules/guidelines:

1. Friday games are for local teams only, U11 and older.  Local teams are those that would play league games in Clarence during the season.

2. I'm trying to avoid 8:00 games for non-local teams (Rochester and Canada).

3. I'm trying to avoid conflicts for coaches that have more than one team.

4. We are using the 2 new turf fields at Clarence High school.  No special cleats required.  If anyone only wants to play on grass, please let me know.

If you have any special requests, please send Mike a note using the link below.
