CLIPPER BASEBALL CLUB MEETING

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Opening:

Clipper Baseball Club meeting was held on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at Clear Creek Amana High School in Tiffin, IA at 5:34pm prior to uniform fittings.

Club Members Present: Trent DeKoter (President), Adam Henderson (Vice-President), Bill Nash (Treasurer), Darci Roehler (Operations Officer), Golda Monohon (Secretary), Reggie Meade (Alternate)

1. Addition of 7U Team:

Trevor Bollers has organized a 7U coach pitch team, currently of 13 kids.

Trevor has asked the CCA Baseball Club to assist with insurance. Trevor will pay the $125 to the board to cover this fee. Since the team was added so late, the club will not issue any money to the 7U team for tournament or league fees. The parents will be taking care of all fees by paying $400/kid on the team. The 7U team plans to play in 4 tournaments (including the state tournament) and the PST league. Trent will assist the team with uniform fittings at their practice on Monday, January 30th. The 7U team will order the same pants and hat as the rest of the club, but will be ordering a dry fit shirt through Ironside as their jersey instead. Helmet painting will be an option to the 7U team. The team will be using the last open gym time on Mondays at Tiffin Elementary as their practice time. This team will also need to share Field #2 with the club for outdoor practices. 7U games require 2 umpires. Ideally this 7U team will be the club’s 8U team next year. Coaches will be Trevor Bollers, Ryan Haughey and Mike Pier.

2. Field Night:

Coaches will be getting together with Trent on February 7th to schedule field times at Tiffin City Park.

3. Clipper Tournament:

Trent followed up with the Optimist Club. They are still good to run the concession stand at the tournament.

Trent emailed Derek with Mississippi Valley regarding trophies.

Not many teams have signed up for the tournament yet. The registration has been a bit of a pain.

4. Important Dates

February 4th – Club Fundraiser at Bobbers

March 1st – Next CCABC Registration Due Date – $150.

Adjournment:

Meeting was adjourned at 6:00pm by Trent DeKoter. The next meeting will be announced at a later time.
