1.    After much discussion and by a majority vote, it was decided that the rules for both the Men’s and Ladies Premier Leagues should be amended to allow players from any of the National Leagues to compete.


2.    It was agreed that we would continue with a Men’s league of 12 with a “new year split”


3.    It was agreed that Ladies teams currently competing in the West Yorkshire League would be encouraged to join the YVA Ladies Premier League in a bid to increase the number of competing teams.


4.    It was agreed that the Men’s Cup Competition for 2011/12 would have the same format as the competition in the 2010/11 season with the bulk of the games scheduled to be played in the mid season break and concluding with a Yorkshire VA “finals day” for the 5th successive year.
