NZL Chair Announcement

Kia ora koutou katoa,

Welcome to the new year! Hoping that your holiday season was restful, safe, and healthy. With 2021 now firmly behind us, New Zealand Lacrosse looks to continue making strides into 2022.

The Board of Directors has been working diligently behind the scenes to ensure the continuation of lacrosse in Aotearoa and to establish ourselves as the up-and-coming sport of choice for New Zealanders. Over the past 8 months, NZL has been shaping up since the merger took place last July under the guidance of our Board Chair, Dr. Rachel Batty.

Sadly, Dr. Batty has made a very difficult decision to take a step back from the Board of Directors. We are extremely grateful for the knowledge and leadership that she has imparted onto the rest of the Board during her short tenure. With a large amount of work still to be done, NZL is continuing to move forward under the direction of our new Chair, Nicole Goode, with Toby Delamore continuing to serve as our Deputy Chair. Massive thanks to them for stepping up and taking control of the reigns.

With Dr. Batty stepping down, the Board of Directors currently has two vacancies to fill. Please read the full announcement here for more information on these two two vacancies.

Looking forward to our return to the lacrosse field!

Best regards,
NZL Board of Directors
