In September English Lacrosse announced that the organisation would be going through a staff restructuring process to enhance our effectiveness and efficiency. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved and we wish those who are moving on to new opportunities every success.
From December 2014 Emma Mooney, Dave Elwood and Stephanie Hallows will leave the organisation to pursue new professional opportunities. English Lacrosse would like to acknowledge their considerable contribution to the growth in the sport.
Emma joined English Lacrosse in 2005 and has worked tirelessly on developing the grassroots of the game in the northwest as well as administering and delivering numerous courses for our education programme nationally. Emma was also involved with developing and organising the girls Small Schools Tournament and the National POP Lacrosse Championships and made a significant contribution to the success of these two priority events.
Dave joined English Lacrosse in 2008 was instrumental in setting up the boys academy system. Dave has made a significant contribution to the success of the men’s talent pathway and the performance of the men’s national team. He coached the National team on five separate occasions including as a volunteer 2002, 2006 and in 2010 World Championships as a member of staff. Dave also professionally managed a number of Men’s National Team tours including being the Manger for the 2014 World Championships.
Steph joined the regional development team in 2013 and has worked in the northwest; in particular she has focused on lacrosse in Cheshire. She has been influential in the development of satellite clubs in the region and managing relationships with clubs, universities and schools.
English Lacrosse would like to thank them for their dedication, passion and commitment in assisting in the English Lacrosse success story and wish them luck in the future.
