2. Minutes of last meeting
Accepted as a true record.
3. Officers Reports 3.1 Chairman - Mike Turner
3.1.1 Communication has improved - decisions made over NVL applications, Regional Grass Series event and chasing outstanding fees. Still room for improvement. When sending out information about YVA activities, make sure you include the relevant YVA exec members.3.2 Treasurer - Debra Smart
3.3 Youth Development Officer - Ed Humphries
3.4 Regional Coaching Administrator - Steve Matthews
3.5 Referees - Diane Hollows
There will be a big challenge next season with 4 new NVL teams needing referees for their matches. Diane is keen to run more referees courses and follow-up clinics. But in order to run a course, a local organiser is the key person.
3.6 Men's Fixtures - Doug Lawson
3.7 Women's Fixtures - Glenn Wraith
Congratulations to York VC firstly on becoming our champion team. Although the league table may show otherwise, the league is very competitive with little difference in standard between all the teams.
The usual frustrations are poorly completed scoresheets, in some cases if I didnt know who played at what venue I would have no idea who the home team were (tricky in the case of Leeds VC v LMU) and scoresheets not sent in on time.The On-line league table is a real winner and has helped me no end, feedback from the clubs is also positive.
4. Yorkshire Development Plan
5. YVA Roles & Responsibilities
6. AGM Planning
Volunteer retention and recruitment. Need to always be on the look out to recruit new blood for YVA, even if new, inexperienced, but willing people. Hopefully we can coach them into the new roles (Div 1 League Secretary, YVA Secretary, Asst Youth Dev Officer?)
7. Lets Play Volleyball Festival - Sunday 13 July 2008, York College
