During the “Team-to-team” rescheduling period, teams and clubs who agree, may reschedule games to any day of the season. Unforeseen circumstances may also have games rescheduled during the season.  While games are initially scheduled on playing nights, the final game schedule may be played as teams and clubs need. Managers should refer to the Team Manager Manual for more details.
