In Town Report
Currently 6 BU10 teams (56 players registered: board agreed to go with more, smaller, teams), 2 BU12 teams and 2 BU14 teams. Four BU12 players will be invited to play up at U14 to help re-balance numbers.
Team submissions due to NVYSL 7/17 for preliminary estimates, 7/29 for final. Rosters due in August.
All referees paid up to this point. Possibility of using junior referees as AR’s for U10 games as in-town program moves to clinic style and there is no need for U6 referees.
Need to purchase reversible shirts for in-town program.
There was no discussion.
Sign-up is very low for BEST soccer camp. An email blast has been sent to eligible players.
New Business Coach Selection Committee– Pat, Bob, Gary, Ian, Brenda, Jenna Brownson. PeeWee/U6 planning for new season – New weekday and Saturday schedules were discussed. Pat will meet with BEST soccer to review plans for season. CORI– All coaches need to renew CORI forms for Park & Rec as well as MYSA. Gary Austin will coordinate. Coach Conduct – there was discussion about adding explicit wording to the website and/or registration pages regarding expected coach conduct and penalties for non-compliance. Feeling was divided as to the value of this, given that coaches already sign a conduct pledge with the league and check an agreement to abide by the club rules/guidelines when they register a player. No firm decision was made.
