Feb. 1, 2010 – Steve Simmons New England & North Regional Director, Clubs & Leagues

SEATTLE – Mike Sisavic has been busy in the Northwest region. He is the SSUSA’s most proactive Clubs & Leagues regional director when it comes to recruiting area directors within his region.

Because of this, he was recently recognized as the SSUSA’s Clubs & Leagues director of the year at the SSUSA / ISA annual convention in Nashville in December.

Sisavic’s latest recruitment success resulted in Joe Colella being named the SSUSA Clubs & Leagues Seattle, WA Metropolitan director. Colella joins Shane Verley (Olympia) and Fred Taylor (Spokane) as Washington metropolitan directors.

Colella plans to work closely with Verley in launching a SSUSA tournament series in the western half of Washington. Verley has drafted a tournament outline for 2010.

Colella started working with the Mountlake Terrace Parks Department in the mid 1990s when failing knees caused him to give up playing softball. He has been involved with both their softball and basketball programs. It is that experience, plus his time spent playing and coaching the game, that make him a valuable asset as a director.

Colella has been married for 29 years and has three children and five grandchildren. He was employed in the banking industry for more than 30 years with various banks. He started his softball career by playing for the company team. He played for the Rainier Bank team for eight years before starting his own team. He remained active in the game up until 1993 when his knee problems caused him to move on to the parks department position.

Following is Colella’s contact information:
