  1. Web Site Access

    • Follow-up:  The Board President instructed the Web Master to do implement additional security checks on the site to include removing admin access to anyone not currently on the Board of Directors and to change the admin password.  Note, there is no evidence of misuse.  


  1. 2016 Registration Planning

    • Resolved: The Board voted to open registration on or about November 16th, 2015.  A period of “open registration” will end on or about January 15th, 2016.

    • Resolved: The Board voted to adopt an open registration policy where any member registering during open registration will be assigned to a team (no cap).  Registrations after the open registration period will be allowed on a space available basis.

    • Resolved: The Board voted to institute a 2-tier pricing structure to entice members to register early.  Registrations during open registration will be discounted (“Early Bird Discount”).  Registrations made after open registration will be priced $25 higher than the discounted price.

    • Resolved: The Board voted to set “Early Bird” registration fees to last year’s price of $145 per registration for levels U11-U15.  Level U9 is reduced to $75 per registration.  This discount is provided to attract our youngest players to our league.  Registration fees do not include a required membership in US Lacrosse ($25).

    • Resolved: The Board voted to allow only credit or debit payments to register via the web site.  This is to avoid past non-payment issues.  Parents wishing to use other payment methods will be instructed to contact the Director or Registration or his/her proxy to register.


  1. 2016 Uniform Purchases

Follow-up: The Board directed the Equipment Manager Sean Reardon to price purchases directly by members through an authorized discount web vendor.  Purchase options and pricing (including shipping charges) to be presented to Board at next meeting.
