At 61, I am enjoying of being active by going to the gym and ref my games. Also, I teach and I coach at my High School. I like as well my vacation every year. 1
Just got upgraded to regional. Therefore, I need to maintain it for one year before upgrading to provincial.1
Just received my Small Sided Game..will upgrade to next level next year1
My experience at the lower level was horrible due to lack of mentoring, angry parents and coaches1
Currently, I do not believe that I can commit ... The sacrifice may be superior to what I can afford at this moment.1
Have been there (again the age thing)1
Cash cow for the Association1
Will be considering it next year1
near retirement1
too old,,,,,,1
I am approaching 60 years of age and do not think i will benefit any by upgrading1
