The final 3 weeks of the fall schedule has been posted in Demosphere and on the schedule page. Thanks to an amazing job by Rob Rule, TORSO scheduler, with the exception one game, the fall season should be complete by Thanksgiving! Rob has done a great job of planning make up weekends in the event of weather. Have fun with the remaining season. See Schedule.
The TORSO D&P Committee reminds all teams that another person's behavior never excuses the individual from their own personal responsibility. This standard of behavior applies to all TORSO players, TORSO fans and officials. The time and place for your review of your referees is not on the pitch following a play, but in a TORSO online evaluation. Teams are encouraged to file a referee report for any comments about their experience of the referee here: Referee Evaluation. All TORSO players are encouraged to understand league rules regarding D&P policies defined in the TORSO By Laws. Sections of interest are: Section 8 - Verbal Abuse of a Referee, Article IX. Discipline and Protest Procedures Section 2 and Article V. Membership - Eligibility And Responsibility, Section 7.
Our League does not reschedule due to insufficient players on game day. If a team knows that they cannot field a team for an upcoming match, they need to notify the Scheduler (email@example.com) and Referee Liaison (firstname.lastname@example.org) 72 hours or sooner to avoid a fine of $100. This policy has been updated to prevent opposing teams to show up with a last minute forfeit. The earlier a team can notify the League the more of a chance we have to avoid Field and Referee assignment fees.

Call the TORSO Hotline (832-487-8786) to check park/field closures before driving to the field. If the hotline states that a field is open as of 11:00am on game day, teams must go to the field. The hotline is updated by 11am each Sunday - the hotline may be updated before 11:00am but 11am is the official posting time.
