SAC UNITED REPRESENTATIVE'S REPORT:
Rich Kilthau provided information to our Club managers regarding a jamboree.
The web site is on line at www.sacunited.com
There is information on schedules on the web site. Sac United coaches will be coaching
teams at the jamboree and the interest is there for U10 players who played in U12 to get
involved. Player passes will be needed, and there will be a three game round robin.
The District meeting will be held tomorrow night so there will be no report until the
next meeting. End of the year standings information will be going out to the coaches next
A metro policy is submitted.
Metro is looking for development teams interested in Class 3 designation.
Several questions have arisen as to why our club handles things differently for metro such
as not allowing tryouts, and not reaching out to interested players or letting players
know of the options of metro.
In the policy there is a proposal that coaches fill vacancies on the teams interested in
playing metro, through the tryout procedure.
Any coaches interested in metro needs to file now.
In the handout submitted there is a mission statement listed for metro.
A first year metro coach must have an E license. Metro is a select program, and is for
development of players. In order to coordinate the teams and tryouts a vote is needed soon
on the policy submitted as we do not want to clash with Sac United tryouts.
Claudia motioned to accept the policy as written and Doug seconded the motion with
amendments to stipulate a time for tryouts.
A commendation to Jim Waits and his helpers for his diligence the past two years in
working on this. Thank you Jim.
A look will be taken at standings information to see what teams may be available for
Janis pointed out that Clarksburg is scheduled to design the pins for this season.
There are some division pins still not handed out as the stats are not all in.
Claudia talked about the web site, reminding Clubs that this will be a good way for the
Clubs to communicate with each other. A list is handed out of the list of items available,
how the web site can be used and the cost per Club. If a Club has their own web site, they
could link up with SYSL. Hope Anaya moves to accept the offer and Georgette seconds. All
Affiliation papers will go out to the Clubs.
The Dixon Club requested information about a letter that was written to the SYSL Board
and was not responded to. This will covered after the meeting as it cannot be addressed at
There was a note in the Sacramento BEE newspaper about Challenge Soccer and that it is
