September General Meeting Summary


All Board positions are open every year. Nominations are open now and we will be voting on Board positions at the October meeting. 


We get it - people are busy. We're not looking for a lifetime commitment - just some fresh ideas, feedback and a little help to grow the game in the Western Maryland region. We have several committees that will hold meetings separately - Rules, Sportsmanship & Disciplinary, Education, Special Events (MLK, End of Season Tournament, All Star Game). Think about last season - did you like something? Want to change something? All are welcome.


We'll be discussing and voting upon the double roster issue in November. Do we move to state ID cards? Mandatory USL membership? This won't be a board vote - it will fall to the programs to decide what they want.


Mandated for Spring 2017: Each team in your organization for levels U11+ is required to have a coach with a completed USL Level 1 certification. For example, if your program has three (3) U11 teams, each team must have a Level 1 certified coach on each team. All program coordinators have known this; it was discussed all last season. Completed certification included the online courses, the PCA course, background check and the instructional clinic. This information is easily verified through USL.


Next meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 4th at 7:00p.


Meeting agenda, minutes and treasurer report are available here.
