3 Open Positions: Tournament Director-Open Concessions 2-Open Webmaster 2-Open 5 OLD BUSINESS Action Log Review: 1. Personal Conduct Policy: While TYSL has a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY that addresses on-field behavior it does not have a comprehensive policy governing personal conduct outside the match environment. Recommendation is to convene a sub-committee to author a personal Conduct Policy and submit to the BOD for review, deliberation and vote. ACTION: Mo and Shelley agreed to create a draft personal conduct policy. Recently sent for BOD review/comment. Jay to join the team. STILL OPEN.

4 Popcorn Machine: Approved, Purchased and Installed BOARD OF DIRECTORS 8 ADMINISTRATIVE A. Trivia Night Review/Outcome 1. $3,400 total proceeds (14 tables) 2. Booked again for next year gift baskets Trivia night was a success. 14 tables. Total proceeds $2,945. Good feedback. Locked in for Oct 25th next year. Questions on the screen was huge. One question on a question. A thought for next year is to have the winning table get 50% of the pot and the organization get 50% of the pot. Maybe a paper to jot notes down on. The free kicks were a great idea as well. Kristen Anderson 8 OPERATIONAL Facilities A. Fields closed for season B. Aeration/over-seeding work completed in November C. Perimeter Fencing D. Asset tags and condition reports for all goals Player/Coach Development A. Coaching sessions with MYSA B. MYSA Scheduling for Spring C. Winter Player Academy Registration now open! Goalkeeping Development A. Dates: 9/22, 9/29, 10/6, 10/13 a. 1 date lost due to rainout b. 8 players enrolled c. Completed B. Coaching The Goalkeeper to be scheduled during the winter. Facilities: fields are closed. Picnic tables are in the snack shack. We aerated and overseeded the fields (well overdue). The town started ripping the fencing down and will start putting it up on Thursday. Maybe by the end of next week, we will have some fending. The town grass mowers have been hitting the goals. We have lost three sandbags, electrical on the snack shack, a net, and one of the U12 goals. The U12 goal is compromised. We need to asset tag all of the goals and sandbags to possibly seek compensation if it continues. Player/Coach Development: Attended the coaching seminar and have come to the conclusions that it would not help our newer coaches. It was conceptual. Winter registration is open. Mo is running the session 12-3 at the Dewing, 4-6 at the Wynn. Starts second week in January for 8 weeks. MYSA schedule is set for Spring. Goalkeeping. Fall session had 4 dates with 8 players (10s/12s) involved. Will try and schedule in the winter. Also visited 14-1 for direct instruction.

Trying to move up the tiny tykes to earlier in the day as well as keeping coaches consistent. U6 - successful season. Good dialog with the coaches and parents. Similar format for spring. Will be sending out an now and after the holidays for registration and coaches. U8 Some coaches/parents really stepped up and helped. U8 teams showed up and donated baskets for Trivia night. No feedback yet for spring from coaches. Reminding the parents of the registration deadline. May want to consider sending an to coaches about the winter program. Hummell was ruled out because we were limited on selection because of their trademark "chevron" which included quite of bit of black on the uniform. With only one remaining style to choose from, it lacked the styling that we wanted in a TYSL travel uniform. Nike had a surprisingly limited amount of styles to choose from and the product cycle longevity in some styles ran out of production in between our uniform style cycle. Any style that we did like was expensive and took us well out of our current uniform kit pricing. Under Armour is actually back in the mix. We had a discussion with our rep and he met with Under Armour dealer and he was reassured that UA is not going anywhere in the team product world. They had a huge change in their Beth Cunningham Page 5 of 7

6 system that led to their inventory problems and additionally the firing of a top executive which led to the rumors that they were leaving teamwear. Based on our past six years of prior experience with UA, we have selected their new Threadborne US ($62.10) uniform which is the replacement for our current uniform style as a potential new uniform option. See pictures attached. Adidas gave us the most options to choose from with several styles that aligned either inside or slightly outside of our current price point. Based on the criteria of price, product cycle longevity, color and style, we selected three different Adidas uniform styles for potential new uniform options. 1) The Regista 18 Jersey and shorts ($62.10) ; 2 ) the Tabela 18 Jersey with the Parma 16 shorts ($49.50) and 3) Entrada Jersey and Parma 16 shorts ($45 with not logo on shorts). The Adidas Copa socks would be part of any uniform kit chosen. See pictures attached. I will have samples of all potential uniform options for the BOD to view at this Tuesday's board meeting. We will then need to vote/choose what uniform option we want at meeting so I can give WeGotSoccer our selection and they can put our Fall 2018 order in with the selected vendor next week. See attached for all pictures and the spreadsheet on pricing. WGS Alternate Jersey - We also have the option to add a WeGotSoccer brand jersey for an additional $5 per uniform kit. This price includes the TYSL travel logo on t-shirt and uniform number. I will have a white sample for viewing but there are other possible options to choose from. We will also need to choose/vote on this so WeGotSoccer can put their buy in for t-shirt that we select. Motion to vote on the new uniforms to go into production Fall 2018 by Mo, second by Krissy. All in favor. Tabela 18 Jersey with the Parma 0 Threadborne US 12 (Red jersey, royal blue shorts, royal blue socks) The Regista 18 Jersey and shorts 0 Entrada Jersey and Parma 16 shorts 0 Threadborne accepted as the kit of choice. Motion to include an alternate jersey to be added to the kit WGS Alternate Jersey by Mo, second by Kristen. 12 in favor. Motion passes. Color of the shirt to be tabled until the December meeting.
