Meet the New Director

Of the Eagan Athletic Association Youth Sports Kick Ball League. The first in Minnesota.

Tonight I met with the entire board of sports directors and gave my proposal to add kick ball to the youth sports program. Lots of questions, concerns, and comments from board members, but I was able to get the motion passed, seconded, and nominated as the director.

It went back and forth. For a while I was optimistic, yes, it's going to be added. No wait, here comes some opposition. Nope, back to being all for it. Nerves of steel, I made it through the blast of questions, comments, and concerns. A motion was passed, it was seconded. Every one said yay, no one said nah. Whoo Hoo. Complete elation came over me.

Onto the next step. I was given a budget. The next meeting in May I am to have a budget proposal, a more clear picture of how the program will work and operate.

So, tonight I begin history in Minnesota of adding Kick Ball to youth sports in Minnesota. A first. Kick Ball has been a co-ed adult sport for the last 6 or 7 years. It has grown and grown. I am hoping to bring the youth to that field.

Who knows what is next? Olympic Kick Ball....could be...don't count it out. Minnesota Youth Kick Ball..Bring it on!!
