Agenda Item #30


Title
Cooperative Agreement between the School Board of Brevard County, Florida and the Friends of Brevard Lacrosse

Discussion

The purpose of this agreement is to allow lacrosse to continue in Brevard County high schools as a Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) recognized sport at the five high schools that currently have club teams:  Eau Gallie, Merritt Island, Satellite, Viera, and West Shore.  In accordance with the agreement the schools will field junior varsity and/or varsity teams based on student interest. To maintain compliance with Title IX the schools must field both boys and girls teams.

As the Board requested, the agreement with the Friends of Brevard Lacrosse (FBL) represents a new and different method of funding sports, with FBL agreeing to cover coaching supplements and other related expenses as outlined in the attached agreement.

Approve the cooperative agreement with Friends of Brevard Lacrosse (FBL).
