FHS Lacrosse Board Meeting Minutes from 11/02/2016

In attendance- Karma Hoffmann, Cami Peterson, Matt Dixon, Keith Taylor and Susan Anderson

Meeting Place- Jerimiah’s

Time- 7:30pm

Not enough members of the board were present to vote on or approve anything on the agenda. However, the following items were discussed.


A large portion of the time was spent putting together a budget using the bank statements from last year. We felt it was important to do so so we could set some fundraising goals and be able to justify how much to charge each player for the spring season. Susan Anderson itemized the budget and will send a copy to the board members.

Winter Practice Facilities- Matt Dixon is looking in to the following places as potential places to hold practices this winter. Best Buy on Riverdale Rd., a warehouse on 1900, BDO, Weber State, Farr West Gym and Campus Books on 1900. Coach Karner wants to start in late November on Tues, Wed and Thurs from 6 to7:30.

Parent Meeting- The meeting will take place on 11/14/2016 in the cafeteria at FHS starting at 7:30. Cami Peterson will drop off flyers and talk to Wahlquist Jr. about making announcements. Karma Hoffmann will do the same at Fremont and Susan Anderson will go to Rocky Mt. Jr. as well.

Matt Dixon will also look into finding some corporate sponsors for the team. He will look in to all of the trucking companies from Plain City.

JV Tournament- It was discussed that we should schedule the tournament for the Saturday after regulation play which is May 6th, all day.

Clinic for Jr. Fremont LAX- it was discussed that we appoint someone to be in charge of organizing the Clinic.

Uniforms- It was brought to our attention that the pennies are not NFHS regulation. We decided Karma Hoffmann would let the Diane Cannell  know we are aware and that we will order Jerseys for next year. We have decided to use the same uniforms again because the players and parents were told we would use them for two yrs.

Fees- Susan Anderson was going to look in to setting up a pay pal account for the online paying of fees. We decided that $110 per player would be a fair amount to ask for to play in the Spring league.
