MVYB Letter from the President - Rick Gorman

Hello Everyone,
 
I hope everyone enjoyed their spring and summers. It’s that time again that we start to think about the upcoming 2014-15 Merrimack Valley Youth Basketball League.  All of our communities are returning again this year.
The Executive Board will be meeting on September 4th to plan for our League wide Town Coordinators meeting on September 28th. We have selected our new Board for the upcoming year and this is posted on our website. I am once again thrilled to work with such a great group of passionate volunteers. 2014-15 will be last year as president of the MVL. My two tours of duty have been exciting and rewarding. I will be working very closely with Ken Miano of Tewksbury this season to provide for a smooth transition when Ken takes the reigns in 2015-16
We will update any changes this year after our Town Coordinators meeting. Expect some slight changes as well as some clarifications on rules and philosophy. In the fall we will be running our annual Coaches Clinic which has been an unbelievable event year in and year out for our league coaches. Last season we also ran our second annual pre-season Players Clinic and this will once again take place in November. The date for the coaches clinic is Saturday November 1st. As always I am humbled to work with such a great group of volunteers.
I want to congratulate all of our division champions from last year as well as our 8th Grade Sportsmanship Award winners. 2013-14 was an outstanding year for our league and we look forward to taking it to a new level this season.
See you in the Gyms.

Best  Regards

Rick Gorman

League President
