Registrar's (S. Masullo) – Balances are past due. All parents were notified this month. If anyone is playing in a tournament in February you need to get the information to Steve right away. If the player isn’t paid in full they will not receive a player pass.

Travel Team Update - Coaches need to make sure that everything gets picked up after practice. Scott let everyone know that Halfmoon changed the set-up this year for U10. They are basically playing a U8 format with larger goals. Placement forms are due tonight if there are any questions you can discuss with Dave after the meeting. No one has received the second uniform some teams have not received the first. The club is trying to work out the uniforms please be patient.

Fundraiser - Nothing at this time.

Spring Tournament- Tournament information was sent to all coaches. The tournament is early this year please recruit teams. You should be trying to get at least four teams in each group. There will be a meeting this Thursday at 7:30 to discuss the tournament.

Old Business – There is still one day available for the Schalmont gym, please notify Dave if you are interested. Make sure kids do not enter the gym until 6:30. Schalmont is buying benches for the soccer fields they are looking for donations. This will be discussed during the board meeting on Thursday.

New Business - New Business – A Select team, FC Capital, is being formed between Rotterdam, Colonie, Latham, and Guilderland for U12-U14 boys. It would be open to any player that is registered with one of those teams. There will be a tryout at the end of March. The best players will make the team it will not be an even distribution from each club. Cost will be about $120 for 10 practices on Monday nights. They would play in two premier tournaments. The coaches are Cory Gregg, Mike Canally, Mike Trimarci, and Bill Blessi all are Varsity coaches. Everyone in attendance was in agreement that this was a good idea and would like to move forward. This will grow to other age groups next year if successful.

MVP is doing KidPower with Abby Wambach on Wednesday Feb 16th 6-8pm for boys and girls. This clinic is free you just need to pre register online.

With no other topics to be discussed, a motion was made by Eugene seconded by Chris to adjourn the meeting at 8:10pm.
