The Huntsville Minor Lacrosse Association elected its new executive Wednesday night at its annual meeting at the Active Living Centre.
President Jason Rudge, who began his second year, welcomed Lesley Reynolds as his Vice President, and Past President Cory Vietch, along with Administrative Director Keri Black. Jackie Dikeos stepped down from her secretary role and that position is one of several that remain open.
Directors include Dan Caswell, Head of Player and Coach Development, Kendra Robins, Director of Box Lacrosse – Rep, Carolyn Francis, Media and Communications, Kelly Pare in charge of scheduling, Joe O’Halloran who will look after equipment needs, and Wayne Clarke Referee in Chief. Rudge will also take on the Director of Field Lacrosse role assisted by Steve Perentesis.
There are four other Directors still needed to look after Sponsorship and Apparel, Development of Box Lacrosse, Fundraising and Tournaments.
Rudge said the committee is interested in hearing from anyone who would like to get involved in a growing minor lacrosse program.
There was brief discussion about what tournaments Huntsville would host and also attend.
Last year the Association had to change some of the playing time because of a conflict with the Ironman Muskoka 70.3 event and Rudge told the audience that would be the case again this year.
The new executive will be meeting Wednesday, October 21 at which time a decision on what tournaments they will pursue with the Ontario Lacrosse Association and what dates they will offer to host competitions this summer will be made.
The Association plans to open its online registration earlier this year on January 1, 2018. They are hopeful they will have two teams in each of their divisions.
