Respect in Sport




The CDLA needs to "sanction" all exhibition games.   This is done by having teams/clubs submit their exhibition games to the CDLA and adding them to the CDLA RAMP website schedule.   When we do it this way, the exhibition game will show on the club website schedule.   These games are then exported in the proper format and send it to the ALRA so it can be imported into the Arbiter (Referee) System.

The procedure for Exhibit Games is:

1.   Email the CDLA office ( with the game details - include Age Group, Division, Home Team, Visitor Team, Date, Time and Location.
2.   CDLA Office will verify that team rosters are setup for the requesting teams.
3.   CDLA office will enter exhibition game into CDLA website schedule.
4.   CDLA Office will supply referees with properly formatted file so it can be setup in Arbiter  (with copy to the CDLA RIC).

**  Only games that appear as exhibition games on the CDLA website are sanctioned games.**

Other notes on exhibition game procedures:

* We will assume that the team requesting is the HOME team and they will be charged for the game.
* The ALRA stipulates that games must be requested more than 72 hours in advance (6 days) for them, so they should be submitted to the CDLA
        at least one week in advance so we have time to verify rosters and set up schedule.
* Standard referee fees and mileage will apply.
