MLA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RESIGNS - posted September 17, 2016
Don Jacks resigned today as Executive Director of the Manitoba Lacrosse Association. His letter of resignation is shown below:
After 23 years of lacrosse and 7 great years working as the Executive Director of Manitoba Lacrosse Association, I have decided to step away to pursue new passions. These choices never come easy but I am parting feeling no regrets and very pleased with all that has been accomplished over the years.
I want to give thanks and a big shout out to the MLA, CLA, all of our members, volunteers, my family and friends and everyone else out there for all the support you have given me through my lacrosse career.
Most of all I would like to give thanks to the game of Lacrosse. This game has taken me around the world, put me through school, put food on my table, and has brought me life-long friendships. I have always had faith in The Creator's game and it has never let me down. Truly amazing!
I will be continuing to work in partnership with The MLA on a contractual basis.
To all the future laxers out there:
- you will learn more about your stick by throwing the ball against a wall for 15 minutes than you will in a 2 hour game.
- know the difference between pain and injury. Fight through the pain, take care of injuries.
- anytime you step on the floor, play your hardest. You never know when a scout is watching.
- Lacrosse is a gift. Respect the sport, your teammates, and your opponent.
- Stay true to your passions
- Success: When preparedness meets opportunity.
Yours in lacrosse,
#5 Don Jacks
