As always, we encourage your participation. The Volunteer Positions outlined for each team MUST be filled before a team is allowed to begin practice. LYSA is a 100% volunteer driven organization – there are no paid positions. It is vital that you take an active role and assist where and when you can. We welcome your attendance at committee meetings and are always open to constructive criticism and suggestions on how to make our leagues and the LYSA a stronger and more efficient club.
