Thanks for the invitation. I will not be able to attend for undisclosed reasons. But, here's to having much success in the growth of the program. It would be great to get more kids involved, and have multiple teams for each age group. I would add, if I could attend, that getting good coaches that are about teaching strong fundamental of the game is very important. There should be a coaching clinic made available for those that volunteer their time. These kids are our future Trojans!!!
There are coaching clinics for these men & women that volunteer their time. Yes I agree we do need more kids playing but I also feel that it begins with the parents motivation and participation. Wish you could make the meeting. I am sure they will have some write up about the meeting. If not call and ask.
Promote the product. And, publicize the results. Get the kids, and the coaches all of the recognition that you can... Parents should want to be a part of something special. Youth sports need to be put on a pedestal in the community. There has to be a passion for it, if it is to be a big success.

I would love to attend and participate however, this meetings is at the same time as the high school boosters meeting.
Reba knows how to get a hold of me if there is something you need me to do.
