By Somerville Youth Soccer League, 05/08/19, 8:15PM EDT


Officer elections and discussion of a number of important issues are on the agenda

Somerville Youth Soccer League will hold its 2019 Annual Meeting on Wednesday, May 22 from 7 to 9 PM at the George Dilboy VFW Post (351 Summer Street) in Davis Square. We invite you to attend this important meeting to discuss and vote on some initiatives for the league.

The meeting is open to the public, but only SYSL members in good standing will be allowed to speak and cast votes.

At this meeting we will take nominations and hold officer elections to the SYSL 2019/20 Board of Directors, the President will address the meeting, and the Treasurer will provide an update on the league's finances.

We have a number of other key items on the agenda, including:

1. An update on the state of Middlesex Youth Soccer League (MYSL), our Travel league, as well as a discussion about our future with MYSL and other Travel league options.

2. Switching to a system where Travel teams are identified either as Select (Blue/Red/White) or Developmental (Grey/Black/Yellow/Green/Orange) and there are clear expectations set for prioritizing attendance and prioritization as a requirement for being placed on a Select team.

3. Partnering with neighboring towns to creating a Recreational program for Grades 3+ with just one weeknight practice and Jamboree-style weekend games.

4. Finalizing Player Codes of Conduct for the different age groups, recognizing that player expectations will be different at each age.
