Snow is on the ground and the fields are covered, but it’s not too early to start planning for the 2008 AYSO soccer season. Adults can get involved and create a great soccer experience for children at the South Tahoe. The AYSO board of directors will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. today at the South Tahoe Ice Arena.
There still are some board and other positions to fill, including referee commissioner and two coordinators, safety director, coaches, referees and division coordinators. It is not necessary to have a lot of free time or experience to help in many of the positions.
Come to the meeting and sign up, or e-mail Paula Peterson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
