The SGSL August Board Meeting will be held at August 5, 2014 at 7:30 PM in the meeting room at Panthorn Park.  All parents and coaches are encouraged to attend. 



The SGSL is governed by a Board of Directors (BOD) that is comprised of approximately 15-20 parents and other volunteers to coordinate all aspects of the league.  The BOD meets monthly to discuss and decide on all aspects of the league, including division creation, player/team assignment process, uniforms, special events and other important league activities.  The BOD welcomes and needs more members to continue the success of the league.  Guests are always welcome at board meetings or parents can help by joining one of the several committees that are forming.  If you are interested in joining a committee or would like additional information regarding the board, please talk to any board member or league officer.
