  • Please note, your school will be responsible and will need to make contact with the other schools to confirm a match. This is to allow flexibility in scheduling. Please  try to avoid Wednesdays when scheduling a match, this is due to referees being in high demand on this day of the week.



  • The LBA understands that there might be some factors which we are unaware of, that may cause inconveniences for a school to fulfil a match. Each team must give 2 weeks notice to confirm dates, times or venues of a match. This is to ensure matches are not rushed, as well as allowing the LBA time to allocate a referee. After the match details have been confirmed please email [email protected] and we will ensure a referee attends your match.



  • Last minute changes can be accounted for. However, if a cancellation occurs 7 days before or within a scheduled match. The team responsible will automatically forfeit. If any changes do occur please notify your opposition and arrange a date and time which is suitable for both schools. Send all confirmations/changes to [email protected]



  • If you reach out to a school and receive no response within 4 days please inform the LBA, if no answer is given to the LBA. The LBA will assume that the team has forfeited the match. There will be a grace period in September with schools starting up, it will be busy for you all and some schools may not have their squads selected.
