In general, the main day(s) of league play is bolded above.  Other days serve as "spillover" days on which one or more league games are scheduled to accomodate an influx of teams, the need to finish the league on time, or scheduling requests from team captains.  Usually spillover games get scheduled later on in the season.

There will be no games 12-24-20 through 1-1-21.  Epic Center reserves the right to schedule games on days other than the listed "proposed days."  These will be scheduled late in the session and will be reasonable times based on your age group.

Youth Soccer Pre and Post Game Itinerary- Moving Through the Facility and Avoiding Crowds

  1. Teams and coaches follow visitor guidelines already described on www.epic-center.com.
  2. Pre-game, teams meet on the roller hockey rink located near the front desk and each team uses one end to warm up with supervision from coaches, with all players and coaches following mask guidelines.
  3. Once the field is cleared from last game’s teams and a staff member has cleaned the venue, a signal “sandwich board” is turned around from a red side meaning “do not enter” to the green side indicating that the bench area has been sanitized by a staff member.  The teams for the next game enter the field through the middle of the field (center line area). 
  4. Post-game, teams exit their venue by walking around the edge of the field behind the goals.  These teams then walk down the main hallway into the roller hockey rink and are led by their coaches with all players and coaches following mask guidelines.
  5. Teams wait on the rink 10-15 minutes for a post-game talk with the coach, cool-down stretching, etc.  This is done to create space for the teams arriving at other venues, and to allow foot traffic exiting the facility to not get overly congested with other players.
  6. All players leave the rink area with masks on and go directly outside to parent’s cars, ideally exiting the facility under supervision of their coaches.

Ref Fees and Rescheduled Games:

Team pays referee fees ($15.00 per team) directly to the referee before each game.  There is a $30 charge for any forfeits, due by the next game.  (If a team forfeits its game, it is responsible for both referee fees.)

Rescheduling must be done within the first two weeks of the session.  The team requesting a reschedule will receive availability options from Epic Center Management as scheduling allows.  The two teams are responsible for agreeing where the game will be rescheduled and will contact Epic Center.  Epic Center makes absolutely NO guarantee that games requested to be rescheduled will actually be rescheduled.  We encourage coaches and captains to accurately fill out the scheduling request portion when registering, to cut down on last-minute cancellations and inconveniences for the other teams in the league.  Please be mindful of why games really need to be rescheduled and review our registration form to see our restrictions.

Any rescheduling done after the second week must be approved by the owner and a $20.00 administration fee must be paid.  All reschedules must be emailed to Epic Center.  Not all reschedule requests are guaranteed.
