Board of Directors Meeting Minutes

June 22, 2016


Meeting called to order at 6:11 PM.

In attendance were: Anthony Baroni, John Julian, Trish McDowell, John Terrio, Chris Martin, Lindsay Marceau, Jennifer Armandi.

Absent: Marc Howard, Jeff Johnson, Dan Popovich


1). Treasurer Reports

Review of actual financials show we came close to the projected $0 budget with minor extra income coming primarily from an increase in Grow Hockey and a stronger Golf Tournament than projected.  Expenses were in line with projected.  The successful Cranberry Tournament also increased our Capital Fund more than projected.

2). 2016-2017 YDYH Budget

Discussion moved to the presentation of the budget for the 2016-2017 season, specifically tuition for YDYH players.

John Julian made a motion for the following 216-2017 tuition structure:

Squirt, PeeWee, Bantam, 2 full season Waves teams - $1025

Waves Half Season - $550

Mites - $825

Goalies - $780

Chris Martin seconds the motion, and without discussion, the motion passes unanimously.

A second motion was made by John Terrio to accept 2016-2017 budget as presented during the treasurer’s report. Trish McDowell seconded the motion, and the motion carries.


3). Tony Kent Update

John Terrio provided the following updates regarding TKA. Rink is closed between 6/27 – 7/16 for some updates. The ice will be coming up, new paint and logos for sponsors will now be on the ice, replacing of vents, locker rooms will all be painted, carpet will be cleaned, lobby will be painted, new doors to the rink surface, roof to be built over time keepers box, new speakers, insulation of garage side door (north side of building,) relocating of trophy case and new landscaping/pacement adjacent to the road. Additionally, Paradise Pizza has opened and is operating.


4). On the Ice

Mite Team League – We currently have 48 registered Mites players. Discussion surrounding if we have time to develop a house league if other programs have an interest in changing for the younger kids but at this time we feel the Falmouth league is a better fit for the Mites.

Girls Goalies – We need 2 girl goalies, how do we recruit them internally? The discussion ensued that it must start at the early levels which we have made changes in ‘passing the pads’ to all kids in mites. Lindsay has already found 2 possible goalies, Anthony has a possibility as well. More to come, good momentum on this initiative.


5). Fundraising

Polar Plunge – trying to coordinate for around the time of Cranberry Tournament. Focus on one fundraising initiative at a time, so discussion tabled for now to focus on other priorities.

Summer Splash – Successful in 2015; interest in having one in 2016, more to follow.

Cranberry Tournament – Lindsay registered the Waves, need to figure out plan for fundraising & outreach to sponsors for the booklet. We need to begin to schedule ice time and work on the schedule for that weekend. It is imperative we make sure that our YDYH teams know that although this is a girls hockey tournament, the monies raised go directly into our Capital Fund which effects girls hockey on Cape Cod and the YDYH program; important to have all coaches/teams/players/parents involved to ensure the success of this tournament weekend.


6). Other Items

Chris Martin waiting on drawings for the outdoor rink, and will also look into cost differential between pavement/cement. 

Approval of funds to be spent on Excel for Trish from the Office Supplies line item of the 2015-2016 budget, to be purchased before fiscal year end of June 30, 2016.

Meeting adjourned at 8:07 PM. Next meeting scheduled for 6 PM on August 10, 2016 at Stonewood Products.

Respectfully submitted,

Jennifer Armandi
