CSA Coaches’ Books

This month, the CSA will be mailing out the 2013-2014 Season Coaches’ Book to all teams. The Coaches’ Book contains CSA match rules and guidelines, as well as pages that are used to exchange lineups with opposing coaches on match days and then compile the scores from the subsequent matches.

Use of the Coaches’ Book is mandatory for teams at all matches, and the records in the book must be up to date at all times. More details on rules surrounding use of the Coaches’ Book will be provided prior to the beginning of match play this season.

The CSA has mailing address information on file for the majority of teams. Those teams that have not previously submitted a mailing address to the CSA will receive an email shortly asking for their address submission.

Team Updates

The 2013-2014 CSA league is now posted online and available for CSA coaches to update their rosters for the upcoming season.

To update your team roster, logon to your account and click on the “manage roster” tab. Then add any new players and remove any that are no longer playing for your team.

Note: If you are not listed as a coach on your team’s page, please contact dent.wilkens@ussquash.com to have your team’s page updated.

Additionally, any teams who previously have not submitted their schedules should do so by emailing the schedule to dent.wilkens@ussquash.com. All schedules that have been submitted will be updated online in the coming week.
