With the exception of one make up match, TORSO teams will not play this weekend. TORSO games will resume on Sunday, December 6, 2015. Enjoy Thanksgiving and the weekend with your family and friends!
The TORSO Exceptions to LOTG have been updated on the site in accordance to the most recent version of the TORSO By Laws. Please make sure you review these and work together with the referee to help your team play to the Laws of the Game and TORSO Exceptions to the Laws of the Game. See the TORSO Exceptions to LOTG.
D&P committee reminds managers that two ejections of the same player within one fall season or spring season will cause suspension of that player for the remainder of that playing session. Team fines will be assessed as decided by the League. Managers must be sure not to play suspended players. Questions regarding player suspensions should be addressed to the D&P committee - firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. 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.
