New Business


We always need volunteers to help with coaching house and helping with fields.  This is a good activity for some of our older players to help with and to earn their community service hours. 


Fields; Pat Deering:  We have been awarded another grant.  The East Hill foundation has awarded us $3500 to put towards more anti tip nets for Gratwick Park.  We thank them for honoring us. 


We are sharing space with NTAA lacrosse at the river.  Let us know of any problems.


Matt Waddington:  very disappointed with the turn out for the coaches clinics he held.  Only 1 house and 2 travel coaches showed up.   We can all learn from each other to help the club grow and to help our players become better soccer players.  There will be another one offered in the fall and everyone is expected to be there.

Let Matt know your indoor schedule when you have it so he can start planning.


Tryouts:  Let Jim know when you are having them so we can get it up on the website.  Matt can also help with tryouts,  just let him know.
