The high standards, success and high quality coaching in the Arsenal program are in jeopardy due to the Board of Director's decision to not renew the long time Director of Coaching's contract. It is imperative that the Board takes the proper steps to ensure that the new Director of Coaching is someone who will be respected and supported by the current Arsenal coaches, otherwise we may lose them. It is also crucial that the Board position of "Select Coordinator" is someone who can work cooperatively with the coaches, DOC and Board. This is why the Select Coordinator is required by the BYSL Bylaws to be elected by the Select Coaches and two representatives of each Select team. This procedure has not been followed.

By signing this petition we request that the Benicia Youth Soccer Board do the following:

1) Before hiring a new DOC the Board considers hiring a Director of the Select Program, a Director of the Recreational Program and a DOC by splitting the DOC stipend by making each paid position more limited and focused as it is done in many other top organization.

2) The Select Division, as defined in section 7.1.1 of the Bylaws, is included in the discussions and vote for the new DOC.

3) The Select Coordinator position is vacated and filled according to the Benicia Youth Soccer League Bylaws (Sections 7.1, 7.1.1 & 7.7.7) which require this position to be elected by a vote of the Select coaches and two representatives of each Select team, not the general membership. 

After signing this petition, please attend the next Board meeting on Tuesday, November 28th at 6:45pm at Benicia Community Center.
