Thank you to coordinators, coaches, players, parents, and referees for a great 2018-19 season! Please look for an announcement regarding our 2019 summer camp series which we will be expanding this year to multiple sites around the city. Have a wonderful off season!

March Coordinator Meeting

Thank you to those coordinators that attended our meeting on March 14th at the Evendale Rec Center.  Here are a few of the things we will be working on in the off-season:

  1. Referees will now be paid $30/game as agreed upon by our member communities.  Referees have not had a raise in over 20 years and other leagues have raised the fee to $30 so we needed to raise to keep the referee talent in our league.
  2. We will be working through 3rd grade rules with a group of officials to take as much gray area out of these rules as possible and make sure coaches and officials are on the same page.
  3. Due to a dwindling number of officials available to work our games, we discussed alternative scheduling options that would allow our referee assignor to get the right officials on the right games based on experience and skill level.  Our hands our becoming increasingly tied in this area and we will be shifting more 7th-12th grade games from Saturday to Sunday to help balance out our weekly schedule.
  4. Ben will be emailing a link to his PowerPoint presentation from our meeting to all coordinators.
