Northampton, MA — On Sunday, the e-mail below was sent to coaches and team contacts.
Coaches, Team Contacts, and SIDs,
A few reminders…
Team Updates: The 2014-2015 CSA league is posted online and available for CSA coaches to update their rosters for the 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com.
Here are links to the instructions on how to add/remove players from your rosters and enter match results.
Team Previews: By the end of the month, we will publish all 104 team previews submitted by the October 3rd deadline. This is the most previews we have ever published, so thank you to all who responded.
Preseason Rankings: Preseason rankings will be published during the first week of November. A few teams have already started to play matches and these results will be factored into the first regular season ranking cycle, not the preseason rankings. If you have already played a match, make sure it is recorded in the US Squash Scoring System.
Minimum # of Players: For a regular season match to officially count for ranking purposes, each team must have at least seven players. Except for Emerging Teams, matches with less than seven players per team will not count towards the required number of matches for entry into the National Team Championships.
Match Results with “Not on Roster” players: As a reminder, make sure your results include all players who participated in the match. As in past seasons, we are prepared to remove teams from the rankings if “Not on Roster” players are not entered.
Qualifications for Team Nationals:
- Varsity teams are required to play ten (10) matches against other CSA teams to enter team championships. At minimum, each team should have at least 6 different opponents. Varsity teams should play the majority of their matches against other varsity schools.
- Club teams are required to play eight (8) matches against other CSA teams to enter team championships in a 9 player division. In addition, club teams must play at least four (4) matches between January 1st and February 10th. At minimum, each team should have at least five (5) different opponents.
