Brampton Minor Lacrosse Association – Annual General Meeting
Tuesday October 17th, 2017
Flower City Community Campus – Building “D”, Room #2
8950 McLaughlin Rd. (South/West corner at McLaughlin and Queen)
This year’s AGM will put the official end to our 75th anniversary season. We will review our 2017 season. Each Executive will provide a season review and then there will be a Q&A period. We will then have an election for any Executive positions that are up. It will end with open discussions on new idea’s and/or new business for the upcoming 2018 season.
The BMLA is a not for profit organization that is run on Volunteerism. Over the years the number of volunteers has dwindled and we need to change this trend in order to keep our great sport alive here in Brampton. We would like to welcome our current BMLA members in good standing to the meeting. We have a great group of executives and we need to increase our numbers. There is no need to be overwhelmed, all help is welcome. Some people might only be able to help out behind the scenes, some only on game day, and we might have some that can help out whenever needed, but don’t know where to start. This would be the time and place to let us know you are interested and able to contribute. Many of our executive members have been involved for years and a succession plan needs to start, so come out and get involved with the BMLA executive.
Executive positions that are up for nomination at the 2017 AGM are as follows:
Box Rep Coordinator
Girls Field Coordinator
Referee in Chief
Lacrosse is a major thread in the fabric of Brampton's, and indeed Canada's heritage, with records indicating that the game has been played in our community since the 1860's. Brampton Minor Lacrosse has grown to become one of the largest Lacrosse associations in Canada. We offer recreational and representative Lacrosse programs in Box Lacrosse, Field Lacrosse and Girl's Field Lacrosse to children aged 4 to 20.
It is one of the goals of the Brampton Minor Lacrosse Association to ...
... work to promote and sustain Youth Lacrosse within the City of Brampton, providing opportunities for citizens and our corporate partners to contribute to building a healthy and caring community through Lacrosse.
The Brampton Sport Alliance (B.S.A.) provides a voice for youth sports groups and a forum for these groups to share solutions to common problems and challenges facing volunteer-based youth sport organizations. The B.S.A. represents 22 affiliated minor sport organizations.
The primary goal of youth sports in the City of Brampton is to help youth find success in sport, which makes them feel valued and wanted. Every child can be successful in one sport or another.
