Attendee Remarks

Consensus to reach out to all players giving them a chance to volunteer to serve on the board

  • Dawn will send out email to all players with board member responsibilities once attendees review this email and give feedback to narrow down or add items I may have missed

Topics discussed to keep league alive and strong, however the final rules will be decided amongst the new board members:

  • Colette mentioned she would like to research other leagues to see how they manage and recruit.
  • Open up the age bracket, do we want to just open it up to 18 and over or possibly 1-3 young players per team, with this there needs to be even teams with a few younger on all teams.

Board members responsibilities:

  •  1st and foremost- abide by the current “Soos Creek rules”. “role model of what the league is all about.”
  • Revise the league rules
  • Re-visit the Mission Statement
  • All new players and players who haven’t signed the contract we will need a copy of DL and signature on contracts/waiver – this will stay with a selected board member
  • Manage website and email
  • Get flyers out and the word about league
  • Manage schedule if Duane wants to discontinue this at some point
  • Attend pick-up games – discussion of 1 board member assigned to a game each pick-up season
  • Communicates well with team reps, board members and players via email, phone, text etc.
