Clubs Come Together for Winter Governing Board Meeting in Galveston

South Texas Youth Soccer concluded the 2013 Winter Governing Board Meeting on Feb. 24. The event was held at Moody Gardens Hotel in Galveston.

The event kicked off with a roll of the dice! Casino Night was presented by Bay Area Youth Soccer Association. Vendors also gathered for the Vendor Expo, right next door to the Casino Night event. 

Day two was composed of multiple workshops that educated the members in soccer fundamentals, insurance, GotSoccer database entry and coaching education. All workshops were free to the soccer community and South Texas Youth Soccer members.

A delicious and unforgettable Hall of Fame Luncheon was held Saturday as well. Cecil Meekins, Linda Miller and Joe Payton were inducted in to the STYSA Hall of Fame.  During the luncheon, Lonestar Soccer Club announced a generous donation of $10,000 to the South Texas Youth Soccer TOPSoccer Programs.  Preceding lunch and the remaining workshops was a social event courtesy of the Houston Dynamos.

The Governing Board Meeting ended the weekend's events with detailed discussions of rule changes, election of Executive Committee members, voting, updates of the Member Associations and Soccer News.

Thank you to South Texas Youth Soccer members for all that you do.  We look forward to seeing you all July 19-21 for the Summer GBM.  The location is still TBD — if you’d like to request to host the GBM, please submit a proposal to the State Office, Attn: Tom Morrow.
