TORSO does not reschedule due to lack of players, a Manager or a field on games day. If a team knows that they cannot field a team, then they need to notify the Scheduler and Referee Liaison 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.
Please note that we will be adding back George Bush Park on March 30th. The Board is actively pursuing a new South Field location to ensure locations for teams in South Houston. More details will be upcoming on this. Also Houston Amateur Sports Park (HASP) has changed name to Houston Sports Park (HSP). All schedules have been updated to reflect this name change.
Because of the expansion of the league, TORSO has added a new first rate playing venue in the north - Dutch Lions Soccer Complex. Located off of Interstate 45 in Conroe, TX, TORSO will play on two new fields with FIFA Soccer specific turf imported from The Netherlands. Both fields have lights. The address for the complex is 14562 Interstate 45 South, Conroe, TX 77384 - click for directions | website.
Players and managers - please note important changes to the TORSO By-Laws, as voted on at the October 2013 League Meeting, that will go into effect for the Spring 2014 Season. 1) Any player found to have spit or secreted on another player will be suspended for a minimum of 5 games 2) Points for a loss will change from 1 point awarded to 0 points awarded, points for a tie will change to 1 point and a team that forfeits will lose a point in the standings in addition to a fine 3) Referee pay for USSF Grade 07 and lower will receive an additional $10 per game worked. The amendments can be found in the League Meeting minutes and will be reflected in an updated version of the TORSO By Laws available in the Information menu section.
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. TORSO is encouraging all players and referees to use this text message based communication tool for field availability status notifications. There is no charge to sign-up for this service and it will overlap the Weather Line. If you haven't signed up yet, please do it today - it only takes a minute to register. Sign-up now.
