Minutes of Dryden Soccer Club Meeting- September 11, 2000
Attendees: Bill Turner, Tara Jenne, Cindy LaLonde, Doug Hoyt, Peggy Westerling, Jeri Ann Bush, Ken Paddock, Missy Park, Tim Wiese
Coordinator reports were given:
Adult Program report: Bill Turner
The first game was played on Saturday. There are 22 players on the team. Indoor play will be set for Fridays and Sundays.
Registrar Report: Peggy Westerling
Lansing is now registering with the Dryden Soccer Club. There are five Lansing teams. Indoor teams need to contact Peggy . The deadline is October 6, 2000.
Rec League Report: Tim Wiese
Tim was given a $2500.00 budget to operate. Discussion about the need to resurface the boards for the indoor leagues. Will check with B&B flooring to see if they have scrap pieces to donate.
Facilities Coordinator Report: Ken Paddock
Discussion about the need to gather information about the gym space requirements for the indoor leagues. The building requests need to be done. Last year 9 indoor travel teams were formed. This year there may be as many as 13-14 teams formed. This will create a scarcity of available gym time.
Suggestions of looking to George Junior, Cortland, and TC3 for space were given. The date for the Premier and Renegade teams was set for Saturday, September 30, 2000. The time will be 3:00.
Discussion about the need for a Travel Team Coordinator
Tara suggested that Lazlo Engel may be interested in filling this position. Responsibility of this position would be to attend the monthly meeting in Binghamton. The next meeting in Binghamton will be attended by Tim Wiese. The suggestion was made to split the responsibility of this job to encompass an equipment managers position. Jeri Ann Bush offered to share this responsibility with whomever takes the Travel Team Coordinator position. She will be responsible for the inventory of all the equipment . She will maintain and supervise the allocation of all inventory and replace as needed. The suggestion was made to disperse this equipment at a monthly meeting at the beginning of each season. Each coach would be required to come to the meeting to obtain their equipment "Coaches Kick-Off" meeting. Jeri Ann would receive authorization of expenditure for new equipment from the Facilities Coordinator.
National Monte Carlo Soccer Festival
Discussion about the upcoming event was discussed. Not much information was available . Bill will touch base with Karen Snow for details. Suggestion were made to set up a table at the festival to distribute flyers with information about the Dryden Soccer Club. Other suggestions were made about how to distribute information to the community. Gym teachers to distribute flyers; table to be set up at Sertoma to distribute flyers.
The legalities of changing the bylaws to encompass the USSF policies were discussed. The area seems to be a very gray area. Most NYSWYSA clubs are not in compliance with the USSF bylaws. Bill Turner to give a report at the next meeting.
Notary Requirements for Medical Release
Discussion was again raised about the benefits of having the medical release being notarized. Does a notarized release protect the club? Does it further authorize our ability to seek medical attention in the event that a parent isnít present? Local hospitals will be contacted to explore the legalities of this question.
HOORAY! Doug Hoyt has graciously offered to manage the 2001 Indoor Dryden Soccer Tournament!!
