Meeting opened with Grassroots Youth Football League addressing the UCYFL Legacy Rule that any child who participates in the UCYFL is not permitted to play for any other league during the On-Season. Grassroots asked that there be a consideration to make an exception to this rule. There was much discussion as to why this rule is in place. It was stated that any rule changes must be proposed by an organization in order for it to be considered.
Rising Sun has petitioned to join the UCYFL for the 2015 season and submitted a request to the League Executive Board and the Board of Governors. They have stated that they are able to fill the core 6 teams. Any/All decisions to add them to the league will take place later this month.
Open Board positions were discussed and nominations made for Treasurer and Secretary. No nominees for President as of yet. Nominees are to be voted on at the February meeting.
How to resolve clinic issues was addressed. Several ideas were brought to the table. Such as, Rotation play in effort to take the competitive play out, or have an official on the field. If anyone has any other ideas as to how to rectify these issues, please bring them to the February meeting.
Aberdeen presented a written proposal to the Executive Board and the Board of Governors, for a rule change to make 11U unlimited weight. This will be voted on at the next meeting.
