Rick put out a general view of what he’s ordered for up coming season. Costs will be around 12-13K. Could require more depending on teams.

Timbits - There may be a U5 next year, has not been decided on SMSL level yet. ||They are talking about this, with lots of interest.

Do we start having U11 tryouts? Other cities tiered the U11 age group. If Saskatoon chooses to tier U11, we will need to run a tryout for this age.

If tryouts happen, we will look at different options on how to do this going forward, nothing to decide at this time.
