HTRBA Annual League Meeting - All Parents Are Strongly Encouraged to Attend!

The HTRBA Little League Annual Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 2 at 7:30 in the HTRBA Meeting Room. While we don't "require" parents to attend, every parent in the league is strongly encouraged to attend. The agenda for the Annual Meeting includes the Annual Financial Report to the league members, a brief “State of the League”, election of the Board of Directors and Executive Board for the 2015 season, and finally an open floor for you to make a comment or ask a question.

Throughout the season, there have been several parents who had concerns about how the league was being run.  Several people indicated that they weren’t aware of how the Board of Directors is selected, or wanted a greater say in how the league is run. This is your chance to have input into who runs YOUR league in 2015!

If you weren’t happy with something in 2014, or have a suggestion for 2015, please come to the Annual Meeting and talk about it. If you were unhappy with a league officer in 2014, show up and share your experience. Once again… THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO VOTE FOR OR AGAINST ANYONE RUNNING FOR A POSITION ON THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS. We hope to see all of you there on October 2!

New Player Eligibility Rule

Little League International recently changed the Player Eligibility Rule to allow players who attend a school within the boundaries of another league to play for that league. For example, a player who lives outside our boundaries, but attends Morgan Elementary School, can now play for HTRBA. So, any child who attends the following schools, regardless of where they live, can now play at HTRBA: Greenwood, Klockner, Kuser, Mercerville, Morgan, OLS, and University Heights. Please pass this along to your child's classmates' parents, and let them know that your kids can now all play together in the same league.
