Hello Ridge Meadows Minor Lacrosse Families:
Our AGM this past summer was fairly well-attended and I thank everyone who took the time to come out. The meeting did result in some returning and some new faces in the Executive. I am confident that this group will continue the strong work of all past Executives. Remaining in their positions are Justin Doucette, Andrea Rae Thauberger, Stacy Paterson, Laurie Young, Tamara Bollinger, Curt Malawsky, and Robb Alexander.
Returning in new positions are, Gord Kask, Richard Bonner, and myself, John Olson. I’d like to welcome brand new to the Executive: Tyson Craiggs, and Brad Downey. I would like to extend a huge thanks to Trish Kingsbury for her years of service with the Female Burrards, Jas Singh for his work as Treasurer, and Nicole Hankins for her work as Registrar. Your volunteer time has been greatly appreciated.
Our appointed positions have been filled for the most part, but we always welcome more help! Our appointed positions fulfill several roles behind the scenes and on the front lines to help keep the kids playing! Serving as Webmaster is Brian Borkowsky, romotions Director is Heidi Doucette, Field, Box, and Arena Allocator is Heidi Doucette, Assistant Female Director is Michelle Heilgenpahl-Cooper, Sr. Head Coach (Field) is Rey Comeault, Jr. Head Coach (Box/Field) is Will Lockwood, Sr. Head Coach (Box) is Gerry VanBeek, Female Head Coach is Ian Morris, Tournament Coordinator and Recognition Coordinator is Devena Steinmann. Finally, we are very excited to have Chris Comeault resuming his role as Head Referee!
You can’t discuss volunteers without mentioning our excellent coaching staff and team managers. Once again, we are lucky enough to have assembled a very strong group of mentors for our kids.
We have some exciting changes for this coming field lacrosse season. With the addition of new fields to the City at Arthur Peake and Karina Leblanc, we look forward to being able to offer more artificial turf time to our teams.
Feel free to contact myself, or any member of the Executive, with any questions or comments. We always welcome constructive feedback. Thanks and see you at the field!
President - RMMLA
