A preliminary seeding will be released to all clubs prior to the seeding meeting.All changes or movement of teams only happens at the seeding meeting.No changes will be made after the time for an age group ends.At that time the seeding for that age group will be final.Each club must have a representative present for every age group they have a team participating.Just because you are happy with where your team is placed on the preliminary seeding, does not mean that they will stay there.If you do not have a representative present at the meeting, no protests will be allowed if your team is moved during the seeding meeting.(Please do not email the YSSL office asking that we be your representative at the meeting, or we ask for team placement in your stead.)
Team time breakdown:

Note: Teams that are playing IYSA or Midwest Conference only do not attend this meeting
We will not be adding new teams at this meeting.All new teams must be added prior to the meeting.Please plan accordingly.
** Be sure to "stack" your games for optimal referee usage!!
Example: Schedule your 8/9/10 games back to back, schedule your 11/12 games back to back, etc. It is easier for the assignor to schedule referee coverage when there are multiple games at a field one right after another.
All clubs will have two weeks to enter any games changes for free.All game changes must be entered online through the YSSL website using the game change button located on the team page.
(Do not email the YSSL office to make a change for you.)All games changes MUST be agreed upon by both clubs before they are entered on the YSSL website (The only exception is if the home team is only changing the field location. They just have to notify the away team and may make the change online.)If you reach out to the opposing club via email and you reach out to them via phone and they do not respond within 48 hours, involve the YSSL Mediator - Frank (email@example.com) to assist in negotiation.
Do not wait until the end of the 2 week free period to get him involved.If you wait or do not involve the League Mediator and you are not able to enter the change until after the deadline, this will count as one of your free changes and the YSSL will not make an exception.
It is the club’s responsibility to make any changes, respond to any request for change, or follow up on any changes needed in a timely manner.
