Discussion was had around participants from the WAVES dual rostering. With the WAVES, we are at 22
total participating players and that’s not a sustainable number to have on 1 Bantam team, and there
aren’t enough players to split into a second Bantam team. At this time, dual rostering is not in the best
interest of the YDYH league. *Note that 2 goalies for the Bantams are not listed as part of the 22
rostered players.* John Julian made a motion to place the teams in the conferences as outlined above. Chris Martin seconded the motion. After some discussion, the motion passed unanimously.

PCA Coach Alliance - Chris brought to the board a program developed to encourage winning attitude in
both players and parents. Discussion was had about bringing the program to the YDYH families.
