Coaches present at the meeting signed up for outdoor spring practice times.
The club is still looking for a Field Manager to help with field lining schedule etc.

From the VP/ Field Manager:
Teams from Grades 5 and up are beginning indoor practices at Falmouth Academy and Morse Pond. There are still time slots open for those two schools. Anyone interested in reserving a practice time should contact Ginger. Morse Pond is free. The cost at FA is $60/hour for the full gym. Coaches are responsible for collecting money from their players and turning it in to the board in March.

Midweek practice times may open up at other schools after basketball ends mid-February. The spring practice schedule will be very tight this year because 2/3 of Trotting Park will be closed for repair. There was discussion of possible alternatives such as the 151 field, Falmouth Heights and Morse Pond. Other non-town owned fields may be explored as well.

The 2018 season will officially begin 4/07/2018 but some teams may have games scheduled the previous weekend (3/31-4/01/2018) which is Easter Weekend. THE LEAGUE WILL HAVE GAMES BOTH WEEKENDS OF THE APRIL VACATION, but not all teams will be scheduled to play on both. Ginger will work with coaches once the official schedule is published.

Season ends - 6/03/18
SCSL playoffs - 6/16-17
MTOC - 6/22-24

From the Coaching Director:
The club is still looking for a coach for the Grade 2 boys. Beginning this Friday January 19th, a free clinic will be offered at TJO Sports for all FSC players. A flyer has been sent via Sports Pilot. 5:00-6:00 Grades 2-4. 6:00-7:00 Grades 5&6, 7:00-8:00 Grades 7&8. GPS will be working with individual coaches and teams again this spring. Head coaches need to find an assistant coach if they do not already have one. Assistants should contact Rob Ryan to get registered as quickly as possible. Rich will look into finding some goalie training.

From the Equipment Manager:
All players must order the new style jersey for spring. Coaches should reach out to their players to make sure they have done so. The Equipment order form will go out soon. Equipment will be handed out in March.

From the Fundraising Manager:
The 10th annual Joe Kirk Tournament will be held Saturday March 3rd at the Rec Center. Cheryl will be looking for parents to provide baked goods for the event. Donations of Raffle items are also needed. Ideally coaches will be able to bring their teams to the tournament but all players should be encouraged to attend even if the coach is not available.
