HTSA Standing Committees

HTSA is a non-profit 501(c) corporation, our Board is made up of volunteers who handle the affairs of the association because they love the game and feel it's important to promote youth athletics in the Terrebonnne region.  There are always things that need attention and work to be done. Please don't assume that everything is just HANDLED by the "Regulars".


If you see short-comings of the Association, that is a good sign that we could use more help!   YOU can make a big difference by asking questions, offering help, and spending a little time with your fellow parents doing some simple things or even some not-so simple task.  Experience is not necessary and we offer on-the-job training!


This is your association.  The more people we have actively share the work load, participate and volunteer, the lower we can keep membership fees and the BETTER the environment for our children we can provide!
