Review of the pre-season schedules that were handed out to the HOP’s was done noting they they are marked as DRAFT and the coaches are still required to show up at pre-season scheduling.
The RPI system only uses pre-set games or extra games scheduled at the pre-season scheduling meeting. Any other games are welcome, but will require that the CSHL Assignor be notified.
Remember that a $150.00 per team deposit is required and due on or prior to the pre-season scheduling meeting. It is preferred that one check be written to the CSHL to aggregate all teams.
Please make sure that program heads or their designees that are able to make schedule changes are at the pre-season scheduling meeting for the entire day.
