High School Soccer Booster Club Minutes
Date/Time/Location: Feb 13,
01/6:00 PM/DHS Library
Club selling See’s Candy, $4/item, from Feb 12-14, at DHS ‘C Square’
during lunch hour. Candy
ordered: six piece chocolate
assortment, solid heart, and polar bear box consisting of suckers/sugar
sticks. Polar bear boxes
sold the least – top seller is six-piece.
There was a lot of competition in trying to sell items – other
clubs were selling balloons, roses, singing grams, and having bake sale.
Additional note: very
few players made individual sales.
bags (maroon) will be ordered for both varsity teams (20 each) – choice of
Adidas or Nike, appr. cost is $22/bag.
Bags will be the property of the booster club – players will
‘sign’ bags out at the beginning of the season and return them – if
coaches and boosters decide to give bags to seniors the boosters will pick
up the cost and order new bags for the next season.
boys’ JV/V and girls’ V got new uniforms (school purchased), question
was asked if this included warm-ups – answer is no – that is separate/up
to the coach.
snacks -- boys’ varsity coach
asked booster club to provide snacks (fruit/crackers) before games.
It was decided to do this for all the teams – need to check what
approximate cost will be.
Boys’ varsity coach – David Gonzales, assistant coach – Nate
Reeves; junior varsity coach/assistant – not known at this time.
Girls’ varsity coach – Joe Danicic, assistant coach – Pat
Peterson; junior varsity coach/assistant – John Page?, assistant ??.
start Monday, March 12, paperwork due to Activities Office by February 26.
Teams (V/JV/cuts) will be known by Fri, March 16.
Actual games begin on April 2.
Kick-off party/auction will be held on March 29, beginning at 6:00 p.m.,
DHS Student Center. It is
mandatory that player and at
least one parent attend. In order
for the auction to be a success, we need items to be donated – please solicit
stores, etc. (theme baskets, movies, gift certificates,) *Symphonic Band will be in Hawaii from Mar 23-31 – this
will affect a few players. Archie
and Carolyn will setup the silent auction.
Photos – suggestion was made to have photographers who take
‘action’ shots do soccer photos. Cathy
will check into this and provide an example at the next meeting.
2nd Annual State Championship (May 24-26) will be hosted by
Anchorage. Soldotna, who hosted it
last year, backed out of 3-year commitment. Cathy will check with state board on manning the concession
Juneau has asked for DHS varsity teams to play there in 2002 – they
will fund some of the trip, and the boosters will raise money to defray the rest
of the costs -- players may have to pick up some of the costs themselves.
This is all contingent on the DHS coaches accepting the Juneau offer.
We are very proud to have be chosen from among the other schools.
End-of-Season party tentatively scheduled for May 29 or June 4.
Shirts – long sleeve t-shirts and hooded sweatshirts will be sold –
colors suggested were white or gray since maroon is more expensive/hard to
get. Logos/suggestions can be
made to the t-shirt committee: June,
Anne, Archie, and Shirley.
Fees: Question was asked
whether we could collect the gate fees at DHS and who/procedures to collect
at Mulcahy field. Shirley will
check into this.
– though this is a great opportunity to make money, unfortunately, the
Saturday game schedules make it impossible to do.
May 5, all four teams play at DHS – we will be running a full concession
stand – need to start looking at donations (hamburgers, hotdogs, buns,
etc). Parents/players (all
teams) will need to work shifts.
