9/27/23: October Election Reminder

Hello families,

Thank you for being part of SRRYBO!  We trust that your kids have enjoyed and benefitted from their exposure to youth basketball. In order for SRRYBO to not only grow, but to continue into the future, your assistance is needed. We are needing to fill the fundraising coordinator, scheduling director, treasurer, and sports engine/website director positions (all 2 year term). A description of the positions can be found on our website at: https://www.srrybo.org/board.  

Many volunteers have worked diligently for SRRYBO to get to where it is now; however, we need new volunteers to keep the organization moving forward.

We encourage anyone interested in the positions to contact the board at: srrybo47@gmail.com, as well as attend the upcoming election at our October 4th board meeting at 6:30 pm at the Sauk Rapids VFW.  

Thank you, and Go Storm!

The board is working on assigning coaches to the teams and will send out communication on that in the upcoming weeks.
