Our first Board Meeting for the 2015 season will take place on October 26th at 7:00pm in the Park and Rec, which will include elections to fill Board positions.
Now is the time to get involved with the future of the league. Many of our board members are ageing out, creating opportunities for new people to step up to the plate and take on the challenges of growing our league.
We need a Vice president, Treasurer, Secretary, Concessions manager, Fundraising coordinator, Auxiliary chair to help with events, Girls Rule coordinator and of course, General help for all events. We need your help to survive as a league and to improve the the softball opportunities for our girls.
We are working hard to improve Girls' fastpitch softball in Wallingford. We've built a new shed to replace the one that was burned down. We are securing a place to hold winter workouts for all ages. The league will cover the cost of the facility and the clinics will be offered to all registered players. We participated in the YMCA's Family day on September 20 at Doolittle Park, in an effort to get our name out there and attract new players. The last two summers, we've run a summer program, mixing girls ages 7-13 together for clinics and games, offering the younger girls the opportunity to work and play with older girls and giving the older girls a different perspective on the game. This summer, we had two of our Juniors level players coach the summer sessions (with the help of a couple of other older girls) under the supervision of our Coaching Coordinator.
We hope you and your player(s) benefit from your relationship with GLLSOW and we know GLLSOW would benefit from your active participation. There's a saying about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, and there's certainly some truth in that. If we want our league to grow, we need new ideas (and some strong backs) to help it along.
Please attend the meeting, if at all possible, and see if there are opportunities that align with your strengths and skills. Even if you can't commit to a board position now, there are always things that need to be done and you may have new ideas for us.
