2018 Tigres – Open Board Member Positions


This month we will be coming to the end of the 2017 Board of Directors session before taking a two month hiatus and commencing the 2018 season in September.

In addition to losing members each year due to their athletes aging up, Tigres has also expanded the number of positions and included more defined roles for each member. As a result there are several open positions and we are seeking parent volunteers to fill these positions. In addition to helping with many of the decisions that are made, each board member plays a very active role each season, beginning 2-3 months before signups as well as throughout the Feb-May season during practices and meets.

If you are interested in joining the board or have any questions about what is involved, let us know. You can fill out the form on the Board Members page or you can also talk to a board member at our end of season awards picnic this Sunday.

High School Athletic Information Night

For families of new high school students who wish to participate in athletics, local high schools are having an information night.

For those who will be attending Ventura High School, the athletic information night is going to be held tomorrow, Tuesday May 2 @ 6:30pm in the Bob Tuttle Gym (on Poli Street).

General meeting starts at 6:30 PM followed by an opportunity to visit the different athletic programs offered at Ventura High. By attending, you will find information about tryouts, summer schedules, and clearances.


For those who will be attending Buena or Foothill, we are hoping to get that information to pass along post as well, but the administration offices of either school should also be able to provide that information. We encourage you to start looking into it now especially for the Fall sports as some are starting tryouts soon or begin practices over the summer.
