NCSL Premier Meeting: A meeting was held last night of people who had expressed an interest in a premier league. The objective is to give the top teams an opportunity to play more games on a voluntary basis with no impact on the rest of the league.. This does not mean that every team in Division 1 is a premier team. The major concerns are that the premier could become magnets for better players and the question of what age do you begin. Starting too early could impact player development. The idea is to have a tournament type environment with multiple games and no trophies. Implementation would be in one or two age groups . If this is approved the President will put a committee together to set this up. It would be completely voluntary with no impact on the rest of the league. No select teams would be allowed, this is for league teams.
Motion: Permission to form an ad-hoc committee to implement NCSL premier play . It will be entirely voluntary and will not impact on league play, limited to 2 age groups.
Motion made by Laurel. Seconded by Gunston.

Motion: TASC must, by July 6, 1999, be in total compliance with the field/team ratio, outlined in the NCSL Rules & Procedures Manual, or no longer be a member of the NCSL.
The fields submitted by this deadline, must be available for scheduling without restrictions for the entire Fall 1999 season.
If TASC fails to comply with this, all teams in the club will be informed by the league that teams must transfer to another existing club in order to play Fall 1999.
This would affect all existing and any new teams that TASC is proposing for membership for the 1999-2000 season.
