This is very dependent upon your location.

I work in an area where it's expected that you will turn back lower-level games for higher-level games. As long as you are good about letting the assignors know as much in advance as possible, you are fine. Even day-of calls to fill in varsity games take precedence over JV games.

Of course, part of that is that almost all JV and MS games around here are assigned 3-man, so having to go 2-man in a last-minute scenario like this is possible.

All of that said, I thought Dan_ref's advice was best. Call and simply say, "I was assigned 4 games on closed dates - what's your policy on closed dates?"
