Longtime Volunteer, Terry Lloyd, Named 2015 Lester B. Pearson Recipient

Apr. 01, 2015

Ottawa, Ontario—The Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) is honoured to name Terry Lloyd as the 2015 recipient of the Lester B. Pearson Award. Considered to be the highest honour in the Canadian lacrosse community, the Lester B. Pearson award is presented by the CLA to an individual in recognition of their outstanding contributions of sportsmanship and leadership in the game of lacrosse and to the physical and mental development of our young athletes through unselfish dedication as a volunteer. A recipient of the Lester B. Pearson award has made a significant contribution, enhancement or legacy to the game of lacrosse at the national or international level through a long term involvement of 10 years or more, at least five of which are at the national level as a volunteer. Through their commitment and dedication to the sport they have promoted a positive image and respect for the game of lacrosse.

Terry clearly epitomizes all of those qualities - a leader, a contributor, an advocate and relentless promoter of the game, giving his time, unselfishly, as a dedicated volunteer.

A family man through and through, Terry is a true lacrosse advocate. He, with his wife Violet and three children Michael, Daniel and Terry Jr. by his side, has given so much and put in so much time, effort and experience to give back to the game that has given him so much. For over 30 years Terry has been a constant in the Canadian lacrosse community from his local contributions as co-founder of the Oshawa Blue Knights Lacrosse Association, to his role as National Team manager for Team Canada's U-19 Men's Field team at six world championships.

His volunteerism spans over 30 years from the local to the national level. This is all in addition to an extensive playing career where he saw many success - player for the competitive Oshawa Green Gaels Junior A, Mann Cup champion with the Peterborough Lakers and player with the NLL's Philadelphia Wings.

For the past 10 years he has run the Blue Knights bingo which supports lacrosse athletes from the local area, covering both box and field lacrosse players from local to national level competitors.

On behalf of the CLA:
Thank you, Terry for all that you have given to our Canadian lacrosse community.
