The Canadian Lacrosse Association’s Board of Directors have accepted the resignation of three members of its National Team Program – Dean French, Chairman; Dave Huntley, Director, Men’s Field Lacrosse; and Johnny Mouradian, Director, Box Lacrosse – effective immediately.
These individuals tendered their resignation to the Board in writing on October 22, 2017, and the decision to accept it was made during the Board’s meeting on November 17, 2017.
“We would like to sincerely thank Dean, Dave and Johnny for the time and energy they have given to the National Team Program over the years,” said Joey Harris, President, Canadian Lacrosse Association. “The international success on the floor and the field was due in no small part to the leadership of these individuals.”
Positive results on the playing field are one of many priorities that a National Team Program must focus on to be deemed successful.
“As the governing body for all aspects of the sport of lacrosse in Canada, we have determined that to enhance lacrosse in our country we needed to create a model that better integrates our National Team Program with all other aspects of our sport,” stated Harris.
Off the playing field is where the CLA and this group disagreed and the differences are irreconcilable.
“We will take this as an opportunity to enhance the National Team Program, building off the elements that are already in place, to ensure that we meet our Sport Canada funding criteria and remain fiscally transparent and responsible to our members,” added Harris.
