November Board Meeting
There will be a board meeting on the 22nd of November. This will be held on a Friday due to scheduling issues at the Middle School. We
invite all to come join us at this meeting. We will be discussing registration costs for next year and going over a number of the bylaws. There
are still open positions on the board that we want to fill before the end of the year. Please join us to learn how easy it is to be a member
of the board. Great things are coming up, please join us and become a part of shaping the future of this league and the girls that play in every
Some Quick Updates
First the board Meeting this Thursday will be taking place at 7pm at the Somersworth Middle School Cafeteria. We moved the time
back 30 minutes to help parents attending the open house at the elementary school. Second I have received a great
response from the 8u/10u players for winter sessions. That age group is almost full so if you would like your daughter to join
us on Thursdays, please send in her information soon. The upper age group has a lot of room left. I would love to see more 12u+
players sign up for Thursday nights. If you know of anyone who would like to join us please give then the information.
Finally, we have a design for the winter session tees. I am posting a picture of it here. I have talked to Collins and they will
be printing the tees for us. The cost of the shirts will be $12 each.

What to look forward to...
Hello parents and players, the board hopes that all is going well with you and your families. I know it is the
off season now but I would like to take a little time to go over what the board is doing in the off season
to make next year even better.
First, we will be combining with Dover again this year for the 16u (girls age 13-16) division. So what does
that mean? First, if you have a player in that age group you will have to sign up with Dover this
coming year. You will play spring in their program, but
we are working with the Dover board members and hope to have some games scheduled at the Malley fields.
Secondly, we have asked to create a second summer team for the girls that did not make the summer team
in Dover and there will be a team. We are currently looking for coaches and once done will schedule a
tryout for that team. Keep watching the website for that information.
There is now a new committee. The board has put together a committee for the rebuilding of the concession
stand. We have done so much with what we have but it is time to get something bigger, and the board and
the committee are hoping to build big. We are in the beginning phases of the planning and
obtaining plans to be approved. Then we will be fundraising for the building. If you have any expertise
in any area and would like to be involved please let the board know.
Finally, there is a scheduled board meeting the last Thursday of the month. It is the beginning of the new
year for softball and with that a new board will be elected. Many of the board members will be staying on
and new ones will be added. We are looking forward to getting the year started off right and invite all
who want to come out to join us. The location is to be determined but will be posted on the website before
the meeting takes place.
August Board Meeting in the books...
Well it was a great meeting and the board would like to thank all those that showed up to the
Walker’s house and I want to thank Colby and Kim for opening their home to the board. It was
the last board meeting of this season and turnout was high with the number of board members
and parents that showed up at the meeting. It is great to see some new faces there and to know
that the future of the league looks bright.
