Illinois Registration


All the Illinois forms were returned because they were not all signed by the coaches or did not have every birth certificate. Dave will work with them to get registered as recreational players.

David Althouse will contact the Illinois and Kentucky State Soccer Associations to determine the appropriate forms that are required for Illinois-player registration in order for insurance to cover the liability at the playing/practice areas.


Completive Scheduling Meeting

Work day is scheduled for 3/18. March 9 is recommended for the scheduling meeting.


Overall Schedule

A draft schedule was presented for review for Spring 2006. Comments were made and changes were accepted.


Locking the Complex Gates

We agreed to lock the complex during the off season. The County has no problem with locking the gate. Mark Davis will go by and put a combination lock on the front gate. The combination will be provided to the board members, coaches, and County.


Use of the $10K County Contribution

Must be spent before June.

Potential options are:

Major Field Work

Maintenance such as fixing the sprinkler system or concession stand. Striping the parking lot


Aluminum Goals


Ballard County Playing


Ballard County Rec League has requested to schedule games with them. We will let them know that we will schedule games at the Complex under the MCYSA playing rules.


Short Sided Games

It was generally agreed that we need to look harder at playing short sided. Everyone should do some research and we will try to get to see some games next season.


The next board meeting will be Thursday February 2, 2006 at 6:30 pm
