SECRETARY’S REPORT

Minutes from November 14, 2007 meeting were reviewed.   REPORT ACCEPTED.

 

OLD BUSINESS

 

            CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT UPDATE

            Gary Parker reported.  Parking lot paving is completed.  A $5,000 donation was received so the final cost for the project to PYS will be $15,000.  Because of higher costs to the town to complete the project PYS will need to pay the town its share now.  Painting of lines in lot will need to be done this spring.  Looking into getting help with painting.

 

            FIRST AID EQUIPMENT

            Ralph Perrotto reported.  Mike Tropeano was able to secure supplies for the first aid kits at less cost than anticipated.  Plan is to have kits ready for spring season.

 

TREASURER’S REPORT

Lisa Stoyle reported.  Impact of having to pay the town for the paving project now instead of in the spring after registration money comes in was discussed.  Lisa Stolye is disputing water bill with town.  Scholarship money has been paid out to recipients.  Recommended getting calendar raffle materials printed earlier and out to coaches sooner.  Need to encourage more participation in raffle.   Discussed a one time surcharge at registration for capital improvements made over the last year. 

Motion:  Charge a one time surcharge of $15 per player at registration this spring for capital improvements.  Passed. 

REPORT ACCEPTED.

 

 

 

REGSISTRAR’S REPORT

COACHING EDUCATION REPORT

Ralph Perrotto reported.   Talking with South Shore Field House about possibility of hosting courses in the future or having coaches’ clinics at their facility.  Paul Turner clinics for U10 and U8 will begin at start of spring season.  U10s on Mondays. Discussed having U8 clinics on Fridays. Concern about field availability on Fridays due to heavy field usage on that day.  Preference is to have U8 clinics on a day other than Friday.  Discussed charging players a minimal fee for clinics and logistics of collecting fee. 

Motion:  Charge $25 to all U10 and U8 participants in Paul Turner clinics.  Passed
