2nd VP: (Lindsey) Post Play/Pre Plays rules have not changed. Only MOSA President or MOSA Representative should email MOSA. Once the club gets an answer, please do not send another 5-6 emails dealing with the same subject. Clubs close fields not coaches, IF two coaches decide not to play due to weather and the home club does not close fields the game will go in as a no play.

Member's at Large: (Eric) Absent but emailed: MOSA Cup Challenge Finals almost all set. Going well! Finals will be at Marlboro on June 1st times for the games should be set by Monday or Tuesday.

Member's at Large: (Al) Went over again that the only ones that should be contacting board members are Club Presidents and MOSA Representatives. Tryouts keep getting earlier each year. Work with the referees and the referee assignors to get the rained-out games in. SafeSport went over who all will need by Fall 2019.


State: (Lindsey) Make sure to update coaches information to Stack Sports (State course/F License certificate, Concussion Certificate and SafeSport Certificate) Required for Fall 2019

Treasurer: (Don) Report was handed out, no questions. Highlighted a couple of bigger bills that would be coming in over the next month.


Secretary: (Bill) Discussed the new process for Shore/South Recreation Area Commissioner election. Asked clubs to look for the email that was sent out earlier in the week. Wall asked if MOSA could resend to clubs. I also suggested that if clubs did not have someone already in mind that they consider supporting Carol Cordiner she is the current Recreation Commissioner for the Shore.

Referees: (Dan Hudson) Answered a couple quick questions the members had.
