Several important things came out of last night’s meeting. Â Below is a rundown of discussion that took place.
TrophiesÂ – the Board votedÂ unanimouslyÂ to raise the approved spending to $7 per child ($6 in previous years). Â Additionally, we are not requiring coaches to get trophies, there are several other items including plaques, pedestals, plates and several other ideas. Â Billing, as in previous years will be sent directly to the club. Â Coaches, please visit Youth Sports Photo’s site (http://www.yspi.com/trophy.htm) for more information on what is available. Â There is a form to fill out online with your interest or you can call their office at any time. Â Please get your order in soon so that you have them before the end of the season. Â (This is for ALL coaches from U6-U12).
FestivalÂ – it’s already been mentioned, but it’s worth a reminder – due to reschedules and weather-related factors, there will be no FallÂ FestivalÂ at the end of theÂ seasonÂ this year. Â This was a difficult decision amongs the SOLD members and we looked at many alternative options to try and make something happen, however, it just wasn’t meant to be this year.
Left-over Long Sleeve ShirtsÂ – We have a limited number of long-sleeve shirts left over. Â These are the same shirts given to coaches, volunteers and kids for the season. Â They are all black with the white SYSA logo on them. Â As a means of not having to store them, we’re offering them to friends and family AT COST. Â Below is a list of sizes available and how many there are as of this writing. Â Cost is $6.50Â per shirt, please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Â Shirts will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
Sizes – # available:
Youth Small – 3
Adult Small – 1
Adult Large – 6
Adult XLarge – 10
Team PartiesÂ – With the loss of the Festival for this year, as well as our current positive financial situation as a Club, we’re happy to haveÂ unanimouslyÂ approved contributing $30 per team towards an end-of-season party for each team. Â There are several local places that make a great party location including (but not limited to) Your PlaceÂ Restaurant, Pizza Delight, and many others. Â This doesn’t have to be pizza, and it’s not mandatory that coaches organize a party for their team, however, it makes a great venue for handing out those trophies mentionedÂ above. Â Michelle will be cutting a check to each coach and we’ll get them distributed to coaches at games and/or practices before the end of the season.
