Parents Questions, Concerns & Ideas

Varsity Field Update – Brian Cashore
Press box – pending board approval 8/26, $27,000 (Greenwood State Bank, Evansville Sports Boosters and donations), will start immediately after approval
-2 story, 16x28
-No bathrooms, not stubbed – cost, size and plumbing to road are issues
Future 16x16 bathroom shared with baseball by pitching rubbers/electrical box
-Concessions and storage
-5’ from fence, will require fence repair
Field drainage issues – 3 priorities, school will cover costs and/or labor donated except as listed below:
1. Field - Angels would need to pay for 3 rows of sod (baseline to baseline)
2. Mound – clay $500, would need to cover with tarp $600, will need training on how to use and maintain
3. Batter’s box – similar costs to mound (clay $500, tarp $600)
Angels already approved $1,000 donation
Angels voted to approve costs for #1 sod and #2 mound. We will do the batter’s box next year.
Invoices should be sent to Dawn or Charity
Brian will contact Dawn before ordering to get approval
Brian will contact Charity when parent volunteers are needed

Coach Agendas

6U – Troy
Troy will work on coaches handout – logistics, drills for kids at home, curriculum, structure with input from Charity on fundamentals
ASA has a booklet & web site with videos (starting at 10U)
Troy will coach again next year

 8U - Aaron
Aaron will be moving up to 10U next year, will need an 8U coach next year

10U - Clint and Charity/Heather
Clint’s team:
4 girls could play 10U vs 12U, they chose to stay at 10U
all but 2 move up next year
4-5 pitchers
Fall practices after school starts

All coming back (14)
1 girl moving up 12U – Jolene
Tied for 2nd place, lots of improvement
5 have to move up out of 13, Jolene is encouraging those that can stay down to do so
Two 12U teams next year
Participating in fall league

14U – Kris
Needs improvement
Matt will be doing fall practices
12 girls returning next year, 1 would have to move up, plus Jolene’s 5
Kris not coaching next year
Matt, Mike Pfeil and Troy Larson will coach next year

16U/18U – Kris
Lack of dedication, girls have jobs
10 players, had to use some 14U girls
Probably not a team next year
Could invite Albany, SC would likely approve this
Kris not coaching next year

Field prep
 Becca and Sara did a good job once they got going. We may not be able to continue this with new clay mound due to training issues.

Secretary’s Report

Treasurer’s Report
Dawn will not be returning next year 2016

Will set date by next meeting, probably later in July, June had end-of-school year conflicts/vacations
12U or 14U, vote to do only one age group
Probably $325 to cover umps, until we have concessions, then we can consider lower cost

Next Meeting
September 13

Meeting adjourned at 8:15 p.m.
