Lehighton Area High School

Field Hockey Parents’ Club Meeting

May 13, 2008


Meeting called to order at 7:04 by Tiven Teno.


A Car Wash profit of $1320.00 was announced by Secretary Tammy Oswald. It was noted that Wal-Mart no longer matches the amount raised. Participants are to submit paperwork applying for community grant which is then reviewed and if awarded, a dollar amount designated by Wal-Mart may be given.

An estimated $40 per girl will be entered to player accounts of girls who participated in the car wash.

It was noted that because it was Mother’s Day weekend patronage was heavy and that should be kept in mind for future car washes.


Committee sign up sheets were again passed around; please keep dates of upcoming events in mind when gathering into committees.


Coach Hindy passed out calendars with summer activities. He noted that he will run a camp in  August and would appreciate the high school girls being available to help.


A fee of $180 will include participation in Speed Camp, Weight Lifting Session and Iron Lakes practices.

The speed camp is by Edge Sports Training and all ages are welcome to participate. A motion to refund $30 to girls who attend 14 of the 17 speed camp sessions was made by Lisa Troch and  seconded by Coleen Bretz.

Travel to Iron Lakes may include school vans and any parents/students who are able to help with transportation.


Players attending UNC Camp are reminded that the remainder of the paperwork, Physician’s Medical Form , Code of Code and Athlete’s Medical form are to be received by June 1 at UNC.
