Board of Directors

The Hopkins Fastpitch board consists entirely of volunteers. The board meets monthly, typically the third Monday of each month from 7-9 p.m. in the Oak Knoll Room of the Minnetonka Community Center. Board meetings are open to league families and players. Note that if you have a topic you would like to specifically address to the board at a meeting, please contact the president in advance to discuss your topic in order to get on the agenda.

There also are typically one or more open board positions at any time. If interested in serving on the board, please contact any of the board members to express your interest to the board president. Board minutes of the meeting will be posted regularly. Click to see an archive of meeting minutes.
