Kevin Dugan Named Administrative Assistant for the FIL

TORONTO, CANADA - The FIL Board has approved the appointment of Kevin Dugan to the position of Administrative Assistant. Kevin will begin his post immediately. This position has been temporarily filled by Vice President Feffie Barnhill.

Stan Cockerton, FIL President, and Barnhill interviewed three very talented applicants for the position and selected Dugan for his passion and understanding of international lacrosse coupled with a strong background in sports administration.

Kevin recently resigned from the University of Notre Dame to work full time on international lacrosse development, both with the FIL and his organization, Fields of Growth, which focuses on global leadership development, childhood education and growing the game of lacrosse www.fieldsofgrowth.org.

President Cockerton commented on Kevin's appointment "We are very pleased to have appointed Kevin Dugan, who is a passionate lacrosse person with great interest in growing the international game of lacrosse on all levels. He has demonstrated his organizational and web manager skills from previous work experiences and his volunteer work with Uganda."

"There has never been a more exciting time to be involved in international lacrosse," said Dugan. "I am excited to serve the FIL board and all it's member nations in anyway possible as we strive to realize our collective dream of seeing lacrosse back in the Olympics."

Dugan graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in finance in 2001. He returned to his alma mater in 2010, where he served two years as the director of operations for the men's lacrosse program. He rejoined the Irish lacrosse family following three successful seasons as the head coach at the University of Scranton. He inherited a Scranton program with a 3-12 record and with just one recruiting class he had the Royals turning in a school-record 12-5 season. In just his third season, Dugan led Scranton to a berth in the Landmark Conference championship game.

Dugan is no stranger to the FIL. He is already serving on the international development committee and his international experiences include working as a clinician in England, Ireland, France, Spain, Mexico, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Uganda. Most notably, he has spearheaded the growth of the game in East Africa, where the Uganda Lacrosse Union is thriving with successful men and women's programs. The lacrosse world will soon learn more about these efforts when the Uganda Cranes attend the FIL men's championships in Denver in 2014.
