I spent the past weekend at the annual NCYSA Southern Soccer Show, mostly in meeting rooms with presidents of soccer associations across the state. A lot of people think that there’s a super secret decoder ring involved with these meetings because it can take a while for the minutes to come online and not a lot is said about them. But there’s nothing that secret going on. I ended up with ten pages of notes from the meetings I was at, so I figured I’d writeup a few things and share what I heard. A lot was discussed, and while it was for the North Carolina soccer association, I expect much of the information will be interesting for parents, coaches, and administrators in other states as well.
So pull up a chair. There’s a lot of information to get through so I’m going to do a post for each topic which I’ll post as soon as each is complete. Since it’ll probably take me a couple of days to type all this up, check back often, or subscribe to our RSS Feed.
UPDATE: Here are the posts from the AGM I’ve written:
- Referees: Independent Contractors or Employees?
- The NCYSA Academy Proposal Debate
- NCYSA Recreation Council Recap
