The OHTSL and US CLUB are pleased to announce that the OHTSL will now be able to register any Recreation program through US Club. Dawn DiCicco will be handling the process for the league which involves simply getting sanctioned by US Club and then providing the OHTSL with an excel spreadsheet of all players and coaches. Coaches will be required to meet the standard US club requirements of the Side Line DOC program and background check. The cost is $10 per player and $5 per coach. For more information, please contact Dawn DiCicco at rec.admin@ohtsl.com.


As stated at the U-8 meeting held prior to the bracketing meeting, the OHTSL is looking to conduct U-8 festivals in regional locations based on community interest and enrollment. The league will assist in the process by providing Pug goals for each region while working with each regional site to assist with scheduling and planning. Please e-mail Howard Klebanow at hklebanow@gmail.com by August 15th with your interest, as well as an approximation as to how many boys and girls teams you may have.  The plan is for games to run on Saturday mornings and early afternoons and begin on September 9th.
