OPENING REMARKS

Mike and Noelle Suprenant came to discuss the possibility of having Pembroke Youth Soccer apparel available at their new store.  They will be opening “Titan Sports” in a store front facility on route 53 (Washington St, just past Mary Lou’s on the other side of the road) in the near future.  The store will focus on selling Pembroke team sport apparel along with specially designed baby apparel as was started by Noelle as an on-line business.  The pricing for the apparel will be 3 tiered thus offering revenue shares to the Pembroke Youth Soccer Association.

The High School soccer team banquet is going to be held in the near future offering an opportunity to advertize PYS Spring registrations. 

 

COACHING EDUCATION REPORT

Ralph Perrotto reported.  There are 20 Samba Sunday sign-ups so far.  Ralph requested board members to talk it up as he would like to increase the rosters, especially the GU10 group.  The session will begin January 15th and run for 8 weeks thru -March 18th 2012.  (2 Sundays off for Feb vacation). 

 

There are 140 registered coaches thus the question was presented about the possibility of sponsoring G and F courses to educate the coaches.  There was much discussion around past non-compliance and likeliness of future participation.  It was decided that the link to take the G course on-line would be distributed to current coaches with coordinators’ encouragement to have their coaches take the time to earn this designation.  Player development and additional coach training and guidance to coaches at each level was also discussed at length.  It was decided that this program needs some fine-tuning.
