“One question people ask quite often is what makes the TLL different from the other lacrosse leagues? There are several aspects that need to be looked at to answer that question” TLL President Lewis Staats said. “The one that was put to action first by the TLL, was to form the Leadership Circle of Excellence. The Leadership is not just a group of people with prominent names. These individuals are all contributing to the start up of our major junior lacrosse league.”
Each member of the Leadership Circle of Excellence has been actively involved in all aspects of getting the TLL off the ground. They participate fully in all the planning meetings that continue to take place. Ted Nolan and Claudia Jimerson both bring unique points of view on diversity and inclusion which are pillars of the league. Garrett Ball has been instrumental in the legal structuring of the TLL and advising on the financial framework and league policies as well. Rob Francis is focused on the overall health and safety protocols and policies that will be adopted and used by the TLL. Curt Styres has agreed to join the Leadership Circle to provide his insights on the roots of lacrosse and assist the league’s owners using his experience as an NLL owner.
