Motion to Adopt Minutes:
Lee introduced motion, Ryan seconded.
There is an online tutorial that TeamSnap could host to show the features fo the service.
The club could purchase the service for all nine teams at a costs of $679.44. This service would have all clubs and players in the database and there would be more features that allow the club to coordinate (e.g., the option to create and event for all teams, and allow coaches to communicate with each other).
To purchase this service, the club would likely vote on it for next season.
Discover Sports Club
Brea went to Discovery Sports Club (DSC) meeting and their AGM is coming up on October 25. Rugby currently holds the president position which alternates between soccer and rugby each year. There are multiple big cost items coming up (pipes, roof etc.) and a need for new volunteers from DSC membership (rugby and soccer members) to volunteer and provide direction to the DSC.

There was a brief discussion about ideas for the DSC (e.g., adding a new sport like cricket). However, executive communicated that these ideas need to be brought up at with the DSC.
The rugby club indicated there is an opportunity for soccer to host for some Saturdays if the schedule permits (e.g., if rugby teams are out of town). Soccer is able to view Rugby’s calendar of events at The Clubhouse.
The club owes approximately $4,000 for the tickets for the fundraiser. Tickets will be here for the next executive meeting.
For the social night the club will sell the tickets for $20 and which will include ticket for a drink at The Clubhouse.
There is a need for communication between teams for selling remaining tickets. The club will need to decide on a process for communicating about remaining tickets.
Each men’s team (Division 3, Division 4 and Masters) all received $50 fines from Vancouver Island Soccer Association (VISL) for not submitting a B.C. Soccer Association’s (BCSA) “Affiliation Form” on time. There was confusion as much of this information was already provided to VISL. Suggested that going forward, the club should decide on who’s responsibility this is and that men’s team should read the list of VISL’s key upcoming dates.
