Boys HS Coach: Absent. Email report. There are 42 players registered for the Youth STP this summer, with 26 of them being from IYHA. That is awesome news, and I'm looking forward to working with the young players this summer. Zach Tolkinen, a recent Quinnipiac grad, will be helping me with the program. He just signed a professional contract with the Calgary Flames' AHL team. Tim Fisher, our team's goalie coach, will also be there most days, as will Rick Thomas, the Mounds View HS Coach. There will be one other coach TBD to help out as well. Really important to keep Monday night skills clinics. HS coaches and Travis Baker are committed to running those.
Girls HS Coach: Absent.
Player and Coach Development Committee:
Potential Partnership Committee: Dormant.
Website Update: Registration screens have been created but they are hidden so that nobody can register until the co-op agreement is finalized. I will need (1) resolution on the LTS USA/MN hockey registration question below in order to post that registration in the future (Nicki said she would get that to me), (2) the final say on whether we are collecting the volunteer fee of $200, and (3) the final say on who is collecting registration fees. There is also a lot of wording (and charges) for tryouts in the registration programs and I don't know if that will need to change. Also, need to know when to start working with MV on website stuff.
Promotion and Retention Director: Tracy Henry – absent, no report.
Adjourned at 8:00 pm.
THE NEXT BOARD MEETING WILL BE JUNE 19, 2014, 6:30 PM, AT THE NEW BRIGHTON FAMILY SERVICE CENTER
