Lease Committee Update

For the Fall, PYS will allow the high school to use field three until 4:30 PM in addition to the field use listed in the current lease which includes use of two other fields until 5 PM for practice.
Snack Bar Patio
Work has begun on the installation of the patio. Foundation materials have been delivered and bricks are expected by Friday. Anyone who can volunteer to help should come by fields in the evenings. The installation should be complete before the season begins.
We have installers for the PA system through Dave Gleason. The only expense will be materials. The system should be up and running before the season begins.
All division coordinators were put into place during the June 2011 board meeting.
Bill Mello reported for the registrar. There is a mandatory new CORI program with which PYS must comply. All of the coaches drivers licenses will be recorded and kept on file per the new policy. The registrar will verify the license and scan a copy for the file. Each individual will need to be re-checked every two years. T-shirts will be distributed to people who have an updated CORI, only. No other adults are allowed on the coaching side of the fields.
The current number of players registered for the 2011/2012 season is 803 which is exactly how many had signed up by this time last year. It is anticipated that there will be approximately 200 more players registered.

Mondays Skill Sessions
A decision needs to be made as to whether PYS wants to continue offering soccer skills clinics on Monday afternoons. NEFC can do it again. They will add coaches as needed. Pricing needs to be verified. MOTION was made to move forward with hiring NEFC to do skills clinic this fall that can be offered at no charge to registered players. MOTION PASSED
