Schedule Change and Score Reporting
New for 2014, all teams in Class I through E (i.e. all levels except Farm Minor) will be responsible for reporting scores to the website, as well as reporting all schedule changes. This will have several benefits to the league, such as standings, games played and missing games. When the official schedules are distributed, coaches will be given passcodes which will enable them to quickly and simply enter their scores into this website. Standings will be available under the Divisions tab, Standings link. 

(Farm Minor teams will still be responsible for reporting schedule changes, however since no score is kept for Farm Minor, no scores will be reported.)
