Rec game schedule will be available after teams are locked in and after the coach's schedules are figured out. We will try to have it by the second week of practice.
Possible returning All Stars may have “workouts” before try outs, but they must be open to anyone who is interested in playing All Stars. These workouts cannot be funded by the league, but may be divided among the parents or fundraised for. They could be called “All Star Preparation Workouts,” but should not be official tryouts. All Star Teams are second to Rec Teams. Rec Teams come first.
There will be an All Star Coaches meeting before the next monthly board meeting.
All fields still need work.
We will meet with Boros soon.
We will need help when the weather gets a little nicer with our storage unit. We have a second storage unit. There is a pool table available.
Log Tavern Road fields - we may use them this year, but it is unlikely because of their intense volunteer requirements.
Shohola - to be determined.
