RAHA Annual Meeting
RAHA Annual Meeting
As a 501C3 ‘non-profit’, once per year RAHA must hold an annual meeting. During the annual meeting, members will vote on 4 board positions (interested in running? Have any other member nominate you and send to this to David van Wees with a short bio) and also there will be an open Q&A (tryouts will likely be a hot topic). In RAHA fashion, we like to combine this with a little fun.
Where: Star Bar, Prospector Theatre on Prospect St, Ridgefield
When: 7-9PM on March 31, 2015
Who: All adult members welcome (new potential members are also welcome)
How: Registration tab in left hand bar on home page on the RAHA website.
Cost: $20 per person.
What: Two hour cocktail party (cash bar). Cheese and Meat boards plus the Prospector’s decadent Gourmet Popcorn buffet.
Please participate in toasting the end of the season.
In a heartbreaking overtime loss in the State Final, the Lions SQA1 team, mostly minors, battled hard against Wallingford A, mostly majors, only to have a freak goal make the difference. A great tournament and effort by this squad. This team will represent CT in the upcoming New England Sectionals.
This past weekend in their state semi-final game, the Lions PWA team overcame a 4-1 deficit with less than 6 minutes remaining in the third. In the final, they held on to a 1-0 lead against New Canaan to become State Champs. The Lions PWA will represent CT in the upcoming New England Sectionals.
Registration for the 2015/16 Season is now open for all RAHA Bantam, Pee Wee and Squirt players. Please use the "Register Online" link on the left menu of the website. As a reminder, tryouts for these groups will be held the week of April 6th.
Information on Mite registration will be communicated later this Spring.
For more information on Spring Tryouts, refer to the 'Tryout Overview 2015-16 Season' found in the 'Documents' tab on the RAHA homepage and or contact any Board Member.
A deposit check of $1,500 must be submitted at the first day of tryouts. This check will only be cashed when a team placement is accepted.
Congratulations to Jack Brown (03 boys) and Catie Boudiette (02-03 girls) for making Team Connecticut for their respective age levels. Honorable mention to Will Forest (01 boys), Julia Zangre (02-03 girls) and Luke Dube (boys 03) for making the last cut.
Also, Katie was selected for the East Coast Selects girls team that will play tournaments over the Spring and Summer, including a trip to Europe.
A great showing for RAHA! Again congrats to these kids and all who tried-out.
RAHA has developed one of the finest coaching staffs in Connecticut. We have an experienced crew who work well together and live RAHA’s Mission. On behalf of the RAHA Board, I am very pleased to confirm the 2015-16 Squirts through Bantam coaches.
