Field Usage: Discussed letting Pioneer Valley use the two soccer fields at TWB on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the soccer season in exchange for Hampden teams not being scheduled for games on Sundays.

Discussed the impact the GM construction would have on this issue. Chris said it would not have any impact. Pioneer Valley would start using the fields this spring. Only Pioneer Valley would be allowed to use the fields. There would be no practice on the fields at all. A motion was made by Tom to open the two fields.

TWB Trophy Case:
Board needs more information. Is the case attached to the wall? Does the school have a construction crew? Tabled until more information is available.
Applications: Could we do the sports applications on the web site? If not payment, then at least an application that can be printed. Glennice will look into this issue.
Jay requested that the Board purchase new uniforms for the CYO teams. Glennice said that when adding new teams was discussed, the Board was assured that there would not be a need for uniforms.
