President’s Report - Anthony Marusco

Our numbers are down slightly from last year.  Looking to make sure that kids are learning and having fun.  Has anyone heard any reasons why?  Is there something that we could do to increase numbers?  We need to go back to the coaches that coach the teeners and ask if the kids can help.  Let’s continue this conversation later.
