Old Business:

Greg to talk to Randy to check if he has / will be spraying yet this Fall. Greg will also confirm that the plans to treat the crabgrass in the Spring are confirmed.

Greg will talk to Metal Works to see if it is possible to re-configure existing 8U goals to new regulation size. If possible price will determine if it is feasible to move forward with possibility.

NISC will not be providing a Winter soccer program. However, Zach has access to E-Free Church gym & will be putting together a program for 8U, 10U & 12U. Greg will be helping with it, but it will be limited to the first 16 kids in each age group. NISC will continue to look at the possibility of creating a Winter program, but due to time constraints it will not be this year.

Dani gave information regarding the cost of a possible new website. The cost would be roughly $130 / year which is the same cost of the current website. She will email everyone a link to the site prior to next meeting.

New Business:

The Post Season Meeting with the Iowa Soccer Association is scheduled for Monday, December 5th @ 6pm in New Hampton. The following are items that need to be brought to the table at that meeting:

  • Continuity of rules throughout the league (ie: goalie possessing the ball, punting the ball, etc)
  • Continuity of field sizes
  • Does the state have a deadline for new goal sizes?
  • Request Kyle contact Charles City seeking possibility of making it a central location for games.
  • Need the ability to proof the schedule prior to it going Live on Tourney Machine
  • Travel schedule
  • Other teams cancelling NISC games at home due to travel time
  • Would like to include at least one home game in NISC that we play each other for older kids & if possible more NISC v NISC for younger kids (8U) to reduce travel for the younger kids (giving 8U maybe 1 travel game)
  • Cody made the Board aware that when NISC first agreed to join the league it was understood that nothing would change within the league without group consent. This is a strong point to make when discussing some of the changes that have occurred over the past season or two.

Stacy M. gave a brief synopsis of her first training with Nancy. The ‘No-Reply’ in the memo line cannot be changed according to Nancy. Stacy will also have one additional web training with Nancy prior to Spring season beginning.
