League Rule 10 XII. The Match Official is responsible for completing the online game report via the Sched2k system. In addition, the Match Official must provide the “Official Game Sheet” plus pertinent paperwork to the league within twenty-four (24) hours of a game being completed. The ‘Official Game Sheet’ must be signed by all three Match Officials before being submitted. Furthermore, all disciplinary forms must be signed by the Match Official before submission.

If the Match Official uses the scan method, they must keep the official copy of the game sheet for the season in case the league requires the actual original. The league will not accept photos of the game sheets and/or disciplinary reports.
