Well although it seems like summer just started, it’s already time to start thinking about the 2017/18 PMAHA season. Registration is now open for all returning players, with registration for new players taking place on June 14th. We look forward to welcoming back our returning players and introducing our association to our new registrants.
p=. Returning players registering before June 16th will receive the $50 Early Bird discount.
As this is an extremely busy time for our registrar, your patience is appreciated as it pertains to responding to emails. Please feel free to copy the President on emails as well, so we can endeavour to respond ASAP. Please allow for 72 hours for a response from anyone on our the executive team.
As you all know, our association is run mainly by a volunteer executive. This year we have lost a couple of executive members whose roles desperately need to be filled.
Tournament Director: Our tournaments cannot run without someone to oversee them. We run 4 tournaments a year, and each tournament appoints a chairperson to run the event. The Director is responsible for overseeing each tournament. We have a ton of support for this person, and our outgoing Director has offered to assist with the transition, so you don’t need to know everything about running tournaments, just have a willingness to learn.
Referee in Chief: Games cannot be played without refs! We are close to securing the one-half of this team who will be overseeing mentorship, training and strategic direction of the program, but we are still in need of an administrator who will be responsible for scheduling and administrative duties. While it would be great to see someone with reffing experience step forward, we really need someone who is extremely organized, and available to deal with last minute changes (refs not showing, calling in sick etc). These two individuals will work as a team to fulfil this role.
We are also looking for Divisional Coordinators for all divisions – Divisional Coordinators are responsible for organizing teams and tryouts before team managers are selected. There is quite a bit of upfront work during late August and early September, but the role evolves into mainly a communication one for the remainder of the season.
If you are available to take on any of these roles, please get in touch with Sharron Tulk. firstname.lastname@example.org.
