New Communities Requesting to Join:

    • Present and explained their organization. 

    • The issue they have is with the cutoff date for 17 year olds being the end of the calendar year.  It would fracture their age groups. 

  • Mt Lebanon
    • Discussion regarding the size of the communities and concerns for current members regarding teams and competitiveness, etc.

  • CIT – Trying to have a team this year.  We would allow them but they would have to pay the league dues by the March Meeting to be allowed to participate.
