COPL/OCL Spring 2021 Schedule is Locked for Coaches/Admins
by Ken McMahon posted 3/2/2021

All,

As we have mentioned in the past, as we start assigning referees (we are now almost 30% of the way through the initial process), we "lock" the scheduling system to coaches.  This point forward, the Game Add/Drop/Modify Process must be used to add, delete or change a game.  

Do NOT add a "Practice" as a game and expect to get referees assigned!

Here is the process (also documented under Club News on the OCL Home Page):

In order to improve responses to ADD/DROP/MODIFY requests, please copy the following on each request:

1. ohiochampionsleague@gmail.com

2. ocl.gamechanger@gmail.com 

3. BOTH coaches 

4. The individual who assigned the field to you.  Thank you.

The following is the GAME ADD / GAME DROP / GAME MODIFY procedure, please follow this.

GAME ADD in subject line

 
Date
Time

HOME team name (FULL name)
AWAY team name (FULL name)
 
emails attached from BOTH TEAMS confirming this is indeed agreeable and a valid game
 
 
GAME DROP in subject line 
 
Date

Field
HOME team name (FULL name)
AWAY team name (FULL name)
 
emails attached from BOTH TEAMS confirming this is indeed agreeable and a valid game

HOME team name (FULL name)
AWAY team name (FULL name)
 
 
NEW game info:
Date
Time

HOME team name (FULL name)
AWAY team name (FULL name)
 
 
emails attached from BOTH TEAMS confirming this is indeed agreeable and changes ARE valid
 
IF IT IS A FIELD LOCATION CHANGE ONLY, NO NEED FOR CONFIRMATIONS
 
Thanks,
Ken and Team

All,

If you are a U-11, U-12, U-15 or U-17 Girls Team that may interested in playing on the April 17th-18th weekend in Columbus, Club Ohio would like to hear from you!  They still have space for a team in each of these age groups.  Reach out to Costa (costa.kalorides@clubohiosoccer.com) if interested.

Dublin Teams (and those playing Dublin Teams)
by Ken McMahon posted 2/25/2021

All,

We have assigned fields and, in some cases, modified times in order to maximize referee/field utilization.  If you play a game in Dublin at Darree fields, a field and final time has been assigned.  Here are a few important points:

1.  If you scheduled a game prior to 3/27, the game cannot be played at Darree as the Permit Period starts on 3/27

2.  If you scheduled a game during the weekend of April 23rd-25th, your game was either moved to Olde Sawmill or will need to be moved (either to a different date or different venue).  If your team plays 11v11, the game will need to be moved since Olde Sawmill only has 7v7 and 9v9 fields

3.  If your team absolutely cannot play at the new assigned team, please send an email to ocl.gamechanger@gmail.com.  The changes were made to allow for social distancing and referee efficiency.  To move the game will require an "exchange" with another game.  We will work to revolve those

REMINDER:  Games need to have a specific field assignment in order to get a referee crew assigned.  Please attempt to update the field information by 5PM, today.  If a field is still needed or if you are not sure how to secure a field, please let us know.

Schedule Will be Formally "Locked Down" This Afternoon
by Ken McMahon posted 2/25/2021

Coaches and Admins,

We are now at the point where we have begun the referee assigning process.  Once we begin loading referee assignments, we "lock" the schedule in order to make sure that referee assignments are valid.  This means that coaches and admins can no longer add games on their own.  Instead the Add/Modify/Drop a Game process needs to be followed.  Please do NOT add games as a "practice" as we do not assign referees for practices and actually filter those out when assigning games.

Why do we do this?  Once a referee "accepts" an assignment, we can no longer simply move the game to a different location or a different day/time.  Why?  Well, many of our referees work as many games as their schedules allow.  Therefore, when we move a game either to a different park or day and/or time, the referee(s) very well may NOT be able to referee that game.  Unfortunately, by just moving the game, the referee stays attached to that game -- meaning that the teams (and the league!) think that there is already referee coverage for that game when in reality there is not.  

We realize that using the Add/Modify/Drop a Game process (documented under Club News on our Home Page) can be a little onerous.  At the same time, the process ensures that both teams know/approve the change, a field is available and that the COPL/OCL knows about the game and can proceed with attempting to secure referees for that game.  

There is still a little time -- through 5:00PM or so this afternoon -- to add games, field assignments, etc. on your own.  If you need to add games after that time, it's not a big deal.  The Add/Modify/Drop a Game process needs to be used.  As a reminder, whenever humanly possible, please select a reschedule date at least seven days in the future.  While we can never 100% guarantee referee coverage, your chances are dramatically better if you provide at least a week for us to broadcast the opening.

The good news is that once we start assigning referees, the season is getting close to starting!

Scheduling Update -- and Several Additional BU15 Teams
by Ken McMahon posted 2/19/2021

All,

We are finalizing a number of field numbers, etc.  We are still short on referees, but we have added over 50% in the past week.  We have also just received word that a league was not able to provide a spot for three U-15 Boys teams.  It would be great if we can provide games for these teams.  If you are a U-14, U-15 or U-16 team (particularly if you are on the West side of Columbus) and can afford to add a game, please reach out to these three teams.  The contact information is in the latest spreadsheet (under Hey Coach/Coach News after you have signed in).  It is also here:
