Score Reporting Tips

Please read the following tips for reporting your scores:

  • Verify your match number using the schedule posted on this Website – the schedule provided at the scheduling meeting is a draft and might not be accurate for all teams
  • All comp teams (D3/D4) must report each and every league match
  • The winning, losing, home, and away teams must all report
  • A match is assigned a match number – you must use that number to report
  • Do not make up match numbers
  • A match is assigned to a specific weekend – if the match is not played by the time the assigned weekend has ended, report a postponement
  • If a match is postponed, both the teams involved must report the postponement
  • If a match is played early, just report the match using the match number
  • If a match is not played by the weekend it is scheduled, report a postponement AND report the match when it is played
  • Use the "Report Scores" link to the left to report your scores
  • Report scores by Monday 10pm following the weekend the match is scheduled on the master schedule
  • Finally: reach out to your club for help reporting scores!

Do Not Submit Late Match Reports Unless...

If the standings have been updated and the list of no-reports has been sent to clubs, do not submit your match report UNLESS neither team reported on the match in question.

 

If neither team reported on the match in question, the match will be listed as not reported in the standings PDF. In this case, we need a late report to know what happened to the match.

 

Scores that are submitted late but are not needed just add to the number of emails and slew of data, and they cause more work with no benefit. So, if your opponent reported the match and you did not before the standings were updated, then don't submit anything late, just be on time with the next report.
