​SEASON FORMAT

Thank you to all that have attended the SFYS Pre Season Meetings.
SFYS Recreational Presentation | SFYS Upper House Presentation

Even with the Playoff requirement, as ever, all Rec & Upper House Teams will get a total of 7-10 games, depending on the size of the flight, the number of bye requests granted, and (where applicable) progress in playoffs. 

  • Limited Guest Play will be permitted within SFYS leagues (Rec to Rec, Upper House to Upper House, by Flight - not player age or gender).No guest play during playoffs - rosters will be frozen after week 7 of regular league play. Specific procedures / requirements explained at preseason Coach Meetings.


SFYS REC & UPPER HOUSE  SCHEDULE CONFLICTS


The SFYS Recreational and SF Upper House schedules take into consideration literally hundreds of conflicts and bye requests as best we were able given the information and the field slots we have to work with. If it was possible to accommodate a bye or schedule request, we have endeavored to do it. In the case where it was not possible, we can still work with you to make it happen - we just need you to consider alternatives to the options you gave us.


For any change in the schedule, the following applies:

  • No change will be made without the agreement of both teams. If your opponents are open to moving a game (which may require a team to play a second game in a weekend or a second game on the same day), we are happy to let you know if there are any slots available, with at least two weeks' advance notice
  • ​This also applies to your bye request not being met. We try our best, we don't ignore you contrary to some beliefs. 454 teams we scheduled this season, and sometimes conflicts are created - help us help you with considering double headers, or playing on the morning of your school event, instead of asking for the entire day off.


ALL SCHEDULE REQUESTS
MUST BE SUBMITTED VIA
THIS ONLINE FORM

Email requests will not be considered.

  • Schedule Change Fee is $50 with minimum two weeks' notice.
  • Schedule Change Fee is $100 with less than two weeks' notice. 
  • Important : Late Schedule Change Requests made less than one week in advance may not be considered at all. If they are, they will be subject to $200 change fee.

​​​SFYS Recreational & SF Competitive Upper House Leagues 

Fall Flights are based on previous standings + team census reporting. Teams that did not complete a team strength census were bracketed at our discretion.


  • Rules for the season?
    Ball size, length of halves, how many players to avoid a forfeit?

  • Midseason Re-Bracket.  2nd & 3rd Grade Only - 2nd Half Flights  [ pending ]


The scheduling process involves quite a lot, including team strength information, scheduling accommodation, allocation of fields - and new this season, the requirement by SFRPD that we run playoffs for the older age groups. For this reason, we have strict rules around our schedules once they are final.
