My name is Troy Lutz and I‘m the newly elected president of the Edmonton Wizards Association.
I am excited about the 2017 Wizard’s season. We have a lot of new faces on our executive with new ideas and new vision. Our past President, Norm has stayed heavily involved and has helped us in many ways. We are dedicated to making this program fun for all our kids, as we all have kids in this program. I want our Wizards to be one family that enjoys being together.
I believe in this amazing group of volunteers. The new board members have been working very hard to be in a position to succeed in this upcoming 2017 season. Some of the improvements we have made include the following:
1) Hiring a financial institute to oversee our entire program.
2) Creating an accurate budget for this season that will focus on keeping costs in line.
3) Reviewing that membership fees are as low as possible.
4) Updating the bylaws to better reflect our future.
5) Exploring ideas to attract more new players to the Wizards program and helping build the numbers of members within.
6) Working hard to find and encourage strong coaches for our kids.
7) A complete makeover of our Junior program.We will make it a success through premier coaches, good management, and an executive that will stand firmly behind these players. Most of these players have been with the Wizards all their careers and we want to pay them back with a great experience playing lacrosse in their final seasons.
8) We are working very closely with all the other clubs within the GELC to create and share new successful ideas.
9) We are focusing on making sure the experience is not only great for your children but also a positive atmosphere for all the spectators there to enjoy the game.
It takes courage to play lacrosse. The sport challenges our children and builds character and strength. This great game will help teach our children to believe in themselves and have the confidence to grow as leaders all throughout their lives. We want all of our players to find that belief and the bravery that comes from standing together as a team. This game is for all the children involved with the Wizards Lacrosse program on every level and we want to make that our focus. That is our vision.
I can always be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments, ideas, or concerns.
2017 is going to be a great year for Lacrosse, the Wizards and most importantly your sons and daughters.
