Open Level Representative positions for Kankakee Coyote Committee

Dear Coyote Families,

I am looking for Level Representatives to serve on the Coyote Committee for the upcoming Fall and Spring Seasons. Interested persons should be positive, upbeat individuals who have the best interest of the Coyotes at heart.

As members of the Coyote Committee, Level Representatives will be elected by members of the club to carry out a variety of responsibilities under the direction of the Coyote Chair.

Some of these responsibilities include: establishment of yearly calendar, player registration, community outreach, ordering & distribution of jerseys/socks, scheduling and organizing team pictures, player/coach gifts, Christmas party, and end of year banquet. This list is an example only & not an exhaustive or exclusive list of duties.

Nominees must specify which level they want to represent & are not able to represent at multiple levels...if you have multiple children at different levels - you must choose which level you want to represent.

Level representative terms will last either 1 or 2yrs, depending on how many years your child will play at that level. For example, if you have a 1st year squirt – your term will last 2yrs; if your child is a 2nd year player, your term will be only one year. Terms will end at the conclusion of spring league play.

Coyote Committee members must be in good standing with the club, routinely be up to date on fees, and not have had any disciplinary actions taken against them. As representatives of the club, Coyote Committee members should be examples of good sportsmanship during all games and practices.

Committee members will be required to attend regularly scheduled meetings and failure to do so could be cause for removal from committee.

If you are interested in being part of the Coyote Committee, email your nomination with the subject line “Kankakee Coyotes” to Nominations must be received on or before Friday, June 9th.

Voting will take place between June 14-21st in conjunction with the election of the KYHC Board President position left vacant by the resignation of Tina Jackson.

Please note, that even if you are not elected to the Coyote Committee – there will be plenty of opportunities to volunteer for the Coyotes in the upcoming year. Level reps will be forming subcommittees for many projects throughout the season and your helps is wanted & greatly appreciated!!

Thank you,

Amy Wendinger
Coyote Chair
