                                Must add as a new team – computer will give an “A” number

                                Robin will change it to the “W” number.

                                 contact information.

Tryout Ads:  Were updated as of 3:00pm June 17th.

        

President: 

Kathie reviewed some important dates:

                June 18th – Division Structure Forms are due

                June 25th – All Fees and Forms are due except for field forms

                July 16th – Field Forms are due

U-11 Format:

Kathie spoke about a few issues regarding the U-11 format.

 

Apparently, some teams are planning to attempt to get around the dual sided game by only rostering 8-10 players.    If the team adds a substantial amount of new players for the U-12 seasonal year, they will be viewed by the Board as a new team and will most likely be placed with teams who are new in WAGS, or possibly ones who have not performed well in the U-11 year.  The teams are taking a big chance playing this little game of passive aggressive maneuvers.  Additionally, we will be throwing a lot of money out the window when we will be paying for two (2) officials and using just one. I will be monitoring rosters for any trend that lends itself to these rumors and forewarn the opposing coaches.

               

Adele Dolansky Scholarship:

The following girls are the recipients of the Adele Dolansky Scholarship:

 

                Amy Mills – HSC Hotshots – Attending Williamsburg College in the Fall

                Shelby Taylor – TSC Thunder – Attending UVA in the Fall

                Michelle Mattingly – SMU Storm – Attending the Naval Academy in the Fall

                Emily Wolff – BSU Freedom – Attending York College in the Fall

 

Kathie Diapoulis, Scholarship Committee Chair, spoke of the recipients accomplishments both on and off the playing field.
