  1. Director’s Report

§         PCA Coaches Clinic was held February 24 at Boonton High School.  A very diverse group of approximately 32 coaches attended.  The renewal fee is $1,975 and we will carry over one clinic.  The Rec programs may seek to run a PCA clinic for a particular sport (i.e., Greyhawks, lax, etc.).  Hosting a parent’s clinic will also be looked at.

§         Budget – the Rec budget has been cut by $5,200 for 2010.



  1. Programs

§         Track program remains beloved but the youth track is short of coaches and there is limited track availability for practice.

§         Rugby - A new rugby program is starting June 14th for kindergarten through 9th graders.  Morris Rugby is coordinating this year with the other towns and will be at the ML turf field 2 times per week.  (See attachment)



  1. Summer

§         Lakers Lacrosse Camp – The one week lax camp will be separately run by Fusco and White from 6/22 to 6/25.

§         Rec Camp fees are now $65 (early bird), $80 (regular) per week.  It will be 6 separate weeks from 6/28 to 8/6.  Deadline for registration will be 5/15.  Carol Marisits and Kevin Wallace will be back to help run.  Counselor applications are being accepted now.  (See attachment)
