We are still looking for coaches; contact Mike Penn at 352.322.0351 or mpenn1@tampabay.rr.com or John Withkowski at 352.364.4545 or withall7@aol.com.

Board of Directors/Volunteers

If you would like to learn more about general volunteer opportunities, contact our Club Secretary, Janel Gaffney, at janelgray19@hotmail.com,or speak to any Board member at the fields on Saturdays or at practices.

The board generally meets on the third Friday evening of each month, and determines the path that the Club will take in providing the best possible playing experience for our children. Any member of the Club is welcome to attend any monthly meeting. As volunteerism is vital to the success of our Club, you are encouraged to give any amount of time that you can, whether by filling a seat on the board or simply by helping out from time to time.
Help share the load! Talk to any Board member.
