Minutes for the November Board Meeting

First off I would like to welcome the new Vice President of the league, Colby Walker. Colby has been voted in as the Vice President taking the place of Renee Cooper. I would like to personally thank Colby for stepping into this position and hope you will as well next time you see him. The league is still looking for a president. If anyone is interested please contact the league! The president is the only position left to fill and the league needs a President going into the next season.

The second big item on the agenda for the meeting was a review of the by-laws. We went over the by-laws as they were completely re-written this year. Some changes were made and posted to the website. Please take a look at them. If you want to know how the league is going to do drafting of players or what the officers’ responsibilities are it will be in the by-laws. Finally approval of the by-laws is set for the meeting in January 2013.

At the end of the meeting the board did a quick vote on purchasing a year membership to playsportstv.com for next year’s coaches. This is a great site with a number of informative short videos on drills, technique, and training for youth sports and in particular youth softball. These videos will help our coaches to teach the girls the game of softball. The board would like to see all coaches view these videos for practice drills and for a consistent coaching from U6 - U16. We hope the videos will give our coaches more confidence, give them more tools and make our girls better players.

On the agenda for the next meeting:

The next meeting will be on January 15th at the Somersworth Middle School Cafe. Meeting will start at 6:30pm and go until about 8pm. All are welcome to join the meeting. If you have any questions or comments please let one of the board members know, or come to the meeting and voice your concern.

Thank you,
