The South Carolina Youth Soccer Annual General Meeting took place this past Saturday at the Doubletree by Hilton in Columbia.
This year’s elections were for the positions of President and Secretary. Hans Pauling ran unopposed looking for a second term as SC Youth Soccer President and Clay Turner, who has been the SC Youth Soccer Midstate Commissioner for the past 2 years, was elected as the SC Youth Soccer Secretary for the next 2 years.
After a report from Rick Cunningham, SC Youth Soccer Treasurer, and Pullen Insurance we entered into our breakout sessions. As with every year these sessions were full of lively debate. Each group spoke about a different level of play, there was a recreation group, a junior academy/classic group and a challenge/premier league group.
We then recognized our award winners for the 2013/14 Seasonal Year:
