USAFL Community Update

Letter from the President

imageWhile the players enjoy the off-season, the Executive Board and Program Coordinators have been busy at work. The winter months are filled with season wrap up, AFL reporting requirements, USAFL annual tax return preparation, and upcoming season planning. In the following months, I will update you on different activities and areas where the league needs volunteers.

To note, this past season has been busy with website development. Thanks to Member-at-Large Kathryn Hogg, we are instituting a League Management System (LMS) which will track player participation, games played, and ultimately, eligibility for the National tournament. This has been a long term vision of the league for the website, however, requirements and costs have been the main barrier to development. It's important to note that our Nationals point eligibility requirements moves our technical needs outside of common off-the-shelf systems, which is why we require custom development. Past investigation of companies who could provide such a system quoted the league up to $20,000 per year for a service. Luckily, the USAFL has Kathryn to thank for her time, effort, and website development skills.
