January Minutes were postponed for approval until the March meeting due to not having printed copies available. Action Items from January:
Reviewed items of note in Financial handouts from Sept meeting with updates (Ted)
Tommy gave an account of the selectman’s meeting with regard to Cricket Lane parcel. Many in attendance from
LYSC. Thank you. Unfortunately it looks like the selectmen will not use town’s right to purchase.
Ted presented his investigation into performance tech from the same vendor that does out cotton shirts. Cost will
be $2 additional per shirt. In addition, vendor can do a light weight cotton for same price as heavy weight cotton.
In-town jersey decision –
- Decision was for PeeWee and U6 to switch to light weight cotton for spring season
- Decision was for U8 to switch to basic performance tech for spring season as trial.
High School Girls travel team – Discussion around whether to have a roster limit of 18 or 22 for the team.
- Hard to get playing time
- MTOC team trying to win – will affect ability to qualify (pat)
- Not sure limit will be 18 for NCUP (mark)
- Possibility to offer 4 players to another town (tommy
- Concern that top players will not comeback

Treasurer: Ted reported ~33K in the P&R account, 10K field bill for 2016-2017 + 9K P&R Fee that need to be paid. Income account: 600.00, Operating: 27K, Booster: 20.5K.
NVYSL: No meeting since last Littleton board meeting. Continued discussion regarding our thoughts on how flights get setup. Sensitive to gamesmanship and sandbagging. Littleton would suggest #1 – All MTOC teams come out of 1 MTOC flight. #2 How to choose the two teams: Top 4 play for MTOC 1 seed, Next 4 play for MTOC 2 seed.
SAGE PCI compliance: TLS 1.0 is disabled by LeagueAthletics so we are good. Bobby receive an image to put on our site if we want to include it.
Tax Returns: Bob to register us with the State, we somehow never did that. We need to track our scholarships, donations, refunds.
MYSA: Tommy to work on preseason MYSA player/coach registration. Any MYSA assistance requests that we have for them, they are asking? One suggestion - maybe ask for tryout evaluators?
