Dallas Lister receives Wayne Patrick Memorial Award

The Cowichan Valley Lacrosse Association’s Referee in Chief was recognized last month as the best in the province at her job.

Dallas Lister received the Wayne Patrick Memorial Award from the B.C. Lacrosse Association as the minor box lacrosse head referee of the year for 2017.

“The RIC works with our officials in developing their skills on and off the floor in their role as officials,” CVLA president Chris Claxton explained. “Other tasks are evaluating and placing the officials in the appropriate divisions to go along with their skill sets, contacting other association RIC’s with feedback, communication and also aiding the ref allocator with filling each game with officials.”

The BCLA’s nomination policy looks for outstanding performance as reflected in evaluations, consistency, commitment beyond the call of duty, helping young officials, filling in last-minute cancellations, assisting with the clock and scoresheet, taking extra time to review rules and takes refereeing seriously, a good attitude talking to players and coaches, being valued as a referee by the public, and being a role model on and off the floor.

“Having seen Dallas work with our young and ‘old’ officials throughout the year I am not surprised by her nomination and her receiving of this award,” Claxton said. “Dallas brings a tireless work ethic within CVLA doing more that her position calls for. We hosted the first annual Thunder in the Valley Peewee B/C Tournament and Dallas stepped in as the chair and did an excellent job at coordinating the volunteers and putting on a great tournament for our teams and gave our young officials much needed time on the floor to develop their skills.”
