Coaches need to make sure that they are cleaning up after their team during practice. Not only should the field be cleaned up but check the waiting area and bathrooms. If supplies are needed at the facility notify Angie.

Marketing & Fundraiser (P. Dowse) - A meeting was held with all of the managers last week which was very well attended. Discussed the need for fundraising to keep fees down with the managers and they provided feedback. Anything you as a coach and/or manager can do to support fundraising is helpful. Pat is looking into a Liberty Mutual proposal that will be discussed with the board. Pat is working with channel 9 to cover the tournament and feature teams for the 35th anniversary.

Spring Tournament- There is a meeting next Thursday 2/17 at 7:30 at the club. Coaches need to be recruiting teams. There are two teams signed up at the U10 girls and U12 boys level. All forms, shouts and ads are due at the next meeting. We will be having regular managers meetings to help with communication especially for the tournament.

Old Business – Nothing at this time.

New Business - Travel pictures are set up for March 5 in the morning. If you have practice that day it will be cancelled. A schedule will be sent out soon. If you have a game on Saturday send Dave the time and we will schedule around it.

Coaches and assistants are needed for spring soccer. Dates for spring soccer will come out soon and flyers will be distributed to the schools.

Foam boards need to go up at the facility. Steve and Carlo are going to go over to see what will hold the boards on the wall. Then a work party will be scheduled 2/19 at 4:00pm.

With no other topics to be discussed, a motion was made by Angelo seconded by Bob to adjourn the meeting at 8:49pm.
