Focus Group Results -- Initial proposal
Taking input and ideas that came from the collaboration, our staff has prepared an initial proposal that we’ll present November 10. What we present will be initial, it will be a reflection of member input, feedback and desires that have been developed to-date and it will reflect our mission to “provide soccer opportunities”. We are intentional in describing the proposal as “initial” as we will seek additional member input after presenting in order to shape a final proposal. The one thing in the proposal that is set is that if the league becomes a reality, the first season offered is Fall 2016.
November 10, 7:30-8:00pm @ Grimes Community Center – Initial Proposal
We have been placed on the agenda from 7:30-8pm at which time we’ll present our initial proposal and if there is time, answer questions. We encourage multiple members of your board to join us at the meeting to hear first-hand our initial proposal. We understand boards will need to discuss the initial proposal following this presentation, and that they'll likely have questions or concerns about it, so the more who can be there November 10, the better it will help conversations within your club.
After November 10 -- December 6 Town Hall Meeting
In early December at a town hall meeting, we'll continue engaging and asking for input about the initial proposal that will guide us to a final version. Please join us:
Following the December 6 town hall meeting, we’ll get the proposal into final form and we’ll forward it to club boards for consideration. After then, we’ll communicate directly with each club to gauge support of the final proposal. Any decision to launch an Iowa Soccer Level 3 league will be contingent upon having a critical mass of teams. We expect this process to be wrapped by the end of the year with an announcement made regarding status shortly following.
