General
Medical Release Forms - NO LONGER REQUIRED FOR OHIO SOUTH TEAMS
Can we use the medical forms we have or do we need to use the form you provide.

Your existing forms are okay to use.
The application form does not look right on my screen (overlapping drop down boxes, long rows over the input fields, etc.) What is going on?
First, you should let the ENTIRE form load BEFORE you scroll. It is a big form.

In short, your computer does not have enough memory (RAM) available to render the form correctly. Here is the solution that will work in most cases:

1. Clear the cache (temporary files) in Internet Explorer (Usually Tools>Internet Options>Remove Temporary files
2. Shut down Internet Explorer
3. Restart the computer
4. Open JUST Internet Explorer.
5. Go to Web site, fill out form.

In most cases, this will solve the problem....
What format will our age group play?
Formats for this year's tournament will be:
U8 - 5v5
U9 & U10 - 7v7
U11 & 12 - 9v9
U13 - U19 - 11v11
What is needed for my team for the new Lindsey's Law?

What is the MASC policy on schedule requests?
We will do what we can to accommodate your requests, however, the following types of conflict requests WILL NOT be considered as a legitimate request:
· Can you schedule a game no earlier than noon cause our coach is not available?
· Can you schedule a game in the after noon cause we are arriving from out of state the night before or first morning of the tournament?
· I have 6 teams in the tournament and want to get to all the games in one weekend?
· I have 4 teams in the tournament and want to get to all the games in one weekend?
· I have 3 teams in the tournament and want to get to all the games in one weekend?
· Can you schedule one game the first day, and two on the second?
Can you reschedule the semi-finals and/or finals to accommodate the 2+ teams I have in the semi-finals and/or finals?
· Can you reschedule Sunday games to accommodate my teams departure flight times?
· Can you schedule games on adjacent fields so I can coach two games at once?
These are consistent requests we've had over the years. Please note that it takes hours and hours to make the tournament game and referee assignment schedule and every schedule change is a big deal. It is impossible to take in to consideration 3 or more teams playing the same weekend. For coaches taking multiple teams to a tournament we encourage you to have assistant coaches who can coach the team in your absence. At best we can try to accommodate 2 teams playing in the same weekend.
Please email any conflict requests to our Tournament Director at masctournament@gmail.com. Please be clear as to the club name, coaches name, gender and age and full name of each team that is participating.
