To the players, referees, coaches, parents and volunteers,
The 2014 season came to a close at our recent AGM and I would like to thank all the players, referees, coaches, parents and volunteers for another great season.
It is a pleasure to see that lacrosse is alive and well in Coquitlam. We continue to see young players enter the sport and we continue to grow. At all levels our kids are developing lacrosse and life skills that will help them later on in life. We saw the always entertaining Mini Tykes chasing the ball like a swarm of bees. We also say farewell to our Midget boys and girls who have given us enjoyment for many years and we thank them.
Developing our players, coaches and referees at all levels will continue to be a focus within our organization going forward. Our Tyke development camps were a great success and we will be expanding our development plans to other divisions in 2015. Our organization will also continue to develop our coaches. We have an extensive base of playing and coaching knowledge in our ranks that we will use to mentor younger players to become coaches in the future.
We look forward to showcasing The Jean Andre, Challenge Cup, Adanac Cup and the Trevor Wingrove Memorial tournaments in 2015. Our dedicated volunteers have made our tournaments a success bringing interest from Eastern Canadian and the US clubs.
To the parents, we look forward to another year of positive development with the players and coaches with positive support from our parent group in 2015.
Finally, I would like to thank our outgoing President James Abbott and his family for their years of service and his continued commitment to the club. 6 years as President, many years of coaching and an alumni of Coquitlam Minor Lacrosse. With James’ leadership, we look forward to working together with the Junior Adanacs program to make our programs even better.
Our recently elected executive positions have been posted on the website.
