2022 Board Elections
Truckee Tribe Members,
It is time for our annual elections.
In reality, it is past time.
With the disruptions caused by COVID, the Tribe has not held official elections in a few years.  We are opening up the opportunity for members to submit their interest in becoming a Board Member to fill some of the upcoming vacancies.  We also have a few sitting members who are up for re-election.
We currently have a 9-person Board, with officers serving 2-year terms, and other directors serving 1-year terms. Due to kids growing up, we have a few members of our Board of Directors who are moving on. (You can real all about the details here )
We request that all interested parties submit nomination for either themselves or another worthy candidate. Please include a short bio (I recommend including a picture) so that those voting for Directors will have some context. No lacrosse experience is required (although clearly helps)
The timeline will be as follows:
Nominations must be received by Friday September 2nd (5pm)
All candidates will be presented on our website for an online election which will commence on Monday September 5th and will run through Friday September 9th (5pm)
The current Board of Director will meet on Monday September 12th to tally and ratify new board members (and re-elected members)
If you are interested in serving on the Truckee Tribe Board, we encourage you to reach out to any current Board Member to learn more about the commitments. The Tribe Board is a working Board, where we expect each Director to contribute both during regular meetings, and outside of those meetings.  The Tribe is an all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit club.
Once Tribe Board members are elected, it is up to them to select officers.
Below is a list of current Tribe Board members and their status. Again, please be thinking of nominees and get those names to   by September 2nd.
Nate Melen / President – Up for re-election in 2023
Kristi Hood / Secretary - Seeking re-election
Uli Crezee / Treasurer - Up for re-election in 2023
Tom Mourning - Seeking re-election

***Update to Truckee Tribe Quality Policy****

***Update to Truckee Tribe Air Quality Policy****

After receiving feedback from members, and in order to align our club with other local area youth sports clubs, and with our league (HSLL), we have amended out Air Quality Policy to use a threshold of 125, down from 150.

We will continue to use the EPA site, AirNow Truckee

 Head coaches and Tribe board officers will determine if play or practice is safe by 3pm.

AQI of 125 or above

UNHEALTHY: All practices are cancelled or moved inside if a location is available. Games will be rescheduled or cancelled. If the AQI is less than 150 and descending, a game may begin if the referee present believes the AQI will continue to drop and the game can be completed safely.

AQI is 100 - 124

Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups:

Practices will proceed, however, coaches should:

Send notice to their respective teams that the AQI is between 100 and 125, and that players sensitive to a higher AQI should not participate.

Continue to monitor the AQI and discontinue practice if the AQI reaches 125.

Monitor athletes for any signs of sensitivity to air pollution or smoke.

Limit and control running and conditioning

Increase the number of water and rest breaks

Limit or excuse those student-athletes that are members of the sensitive group

Check the AQI periodically to stay updated on changing conditions. If AQI reaches, 125 practice is cancelled or everyone must go inside.

Please review additional important information regarding Air Quality Index and monitoring from the Washoe County Health District.

AQI is less than 100

All activities are OK.

Air Quality Policy


Our Air Quality Policy is posted on this website, under Tribe Club / Safety & Health / Emergency Action Plan. It is provided, below, for convenience:

Air Quality - An AQI in excess of 150 will cause all Tribe sanctioned outdoor practices and games to be canceled.  

AQI reading can be found here:

Head coaches and Tribe board officers will determine if play or practice is safe


Additionally, coaches will keep us posted on their assessment as practices approach. In all cases, we ultimately leave the decision of whether or not a child should participate to the discretion of the parent. Air quality can vary within Truckee, conditions are subject to change, and each player's circumstances are unique.

Let's hope for clear skies for many reasons.

Age Verification

If you have registered your child to play, please spend a few minutes and age verify though US Lacrosse

Why Age Verification

US Lacrosse is working with youth leagues throughout the country to ensure that players are grouped appropriately to keep players safe and to help make competition fair.

Secure and Easy To Use

The new US Lacrosse age verification system is secure and easy to use. Age verification uses SSL technology, the standard for transmitting sensitive information online.

Steps to Verify the Age of Your Child

  1. Scan or take a photo of your son or daughter's birth certificate or state-issued ID.
  2. Click the button below and log into your account, not your child's.
  3. Upload your scan or photo to our online system.
  4. We'll review your documentation, record the birthdate in our system and then permanently delete your uploaded document.
  5. You'll receive a confirmation email, and you’re done. This is a one-time process that is good for the lifetime of your child’s membership.

Verify Now


You can also take a pic of your child's Birth Certificate with your mobile phone, and email that picture to:
