Andy Goodman reported on registration status and also about the issue of the high number of late registrations received this year. Discussed increasing the late fee, adding the late fee to internet registrations and eliminating the online fee by working it into the regular fee. The goal is to decrease late registrations. MOTION: Increase late fee to $25 and have it also apply to internet registrations after July 31st. Spring registration deadline will be March 1st. MOTION PASSED. Bill Tholen and Andy Goodman will report back on the surcharge charges by the online registration service and look into the possibility of having the fee reduced.
COACHING EDUCATION REPORT
Fran Squatrito reported on a game rule clarification-for U12s the goalies' kick or throw cannot cross midline, and a rule change-no casts will be allowed. Also, spring per team fees went down: U10s from $75 to $60 and U12/U14/U16-U19 from $90 to $80.
REFEREE COORDINATOR REPORT
Bill Tholen reported. Discussed need to raise the fees for U16-U19 to become more in line with other towns as we have a shortage of refs at this level. Will look at this issue again before spring season. Discussed the differential in pay for fall and spring at U10 level. MOTION: Change rate for U10 refs to $15 per game for both fall and spring seasons. Increase U12 rate for fall season to $17 and U14 rate for fall season to $19. MOTION PASSED.
