1/12 TYUL Meeting Minutes

Bear with me, this meeting was 2.5 hours long and we covered a LOT of information, so here's a brief summary of some of the topics we covered...

TYUL Organization
We're looking into defining positions and responsibilities within the TYUL organizational structure to better serve participants. We are going to foster our relationship with the TFDA as they are interested in growing youth ultimate. As an already organized body, the TFDA has resources and infrastructure in place to support the growth of TYUL.

High School Notes
We would like to increase the number of legitimate teams at the high school level in our area. We would like to do this by providing coaches and reaching out to interested students and schools through our yet to be appointed 'Outreach Manager'.

Middle School Notes
The Middle School Ultimate Championship will be held February 7 & 8 in Efland, NC. We are looking for a few good volunteers to help make this tournament run smoothly. We are looking for individuals to help with setting up & running the tournament and we are also looking for individuals who may be willing to participate as 'observers'.

Summer League Notes
We have dates, times and locations set for this summer already! We will be utilizing SAS soccer park on the following dates: June 13, 20, 27 July 11, 19, 25 Both High School and Middle School division play will be held at this location. Exact time and duration may vary but we have reserved the fields from 9:30-4. The end of season league tournament is still to be determined.

Communication Notes
We're working on getting a spiffy new website up and running. Got any ideas for a slogan? Email holyczuba@gmail.com with ideas.

What we need...
1. Coaches! If interested, send us an email. We're looking to get coaches set up with several schools in the area.
2. Volunteers! to help at the Middle School Championships on Feb 7/8. Get in touch with Jen Waldrup (jennifer_waldrup@gmail.com) if you would like to help out.

Various Odds & Ends
  • There are several middle schools in our area hosting teams with 30 + players. This makes it increasingly important to develop our high school teams so that these players can continue to play as they move along school.
  • We're looking into the possibility of some mini-tournaments (day long events) for the high school spring league season to allow high schools from further away to come play ultimate against teams from the more immediate area.
