Notice of Annual Meeting, Elections,and Director Opportunities

With the leaves falling from the trees, temperatures dropping, and winter on the way,  it’s hard to believe the 2020 lacrosse season is just around the corner. To make the CGAA Youth Lacrosse Program the best it can be and ensure 2020 is a great year for players, coaches, and parents, we need to make sure we have people serving in key roles.  Simply put, the more volunteers we have, the better our program will be overall and for our kids. 

We know volunteering takes time, but can tell you from experience that it is a great way to meet new people, feel like a larger part of the Cottage Grove community, and help to support and grow a sport that your kids love.  Please review each of the roles below (as well as the benefits of serving), and consider if any of are interest to you.
