Cancelation Procedures

Practice & Game Cancelation Procedures

In addition to being “forced” to cancel a practice or game due to field closures from the Town of Needham or Needham Soccer Club, there a always reasons Coaches and teams need to cancel a practice or reschedule a game. As a result we wanted to generate a clear list for each coach to communicate with when canceling or rescheduling a team event for each of our programs/leagues. Please take note of all the parties involved at each level to ensure everyone who needs to know of a change in schedule is notified As Soon As Possible.
