Leies to coach with Acme Timbermen

The Acme Timbermen want to take a jump forward, so maybe a ‘Leies leap’ will help them do just that.

Nanaimo’s senior B lacrosse club announced last week that Tyson Leies will join Mike Maughan on the team’s coaching staff for the 2014 season.

Leies is a member of the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame; a Mann Cup, Minto Cup and National Lacrosse League champion; and was known for jumping up the glass, Spiderman style, to celebrate goals.

He previously coached in Nanaimo with the junior A Timbermen.

“We are very excited to have Tyson join our coaching staff,” said Shawn Swanson, general manager of the Acme T-men, in a press release. “His success as both a player and coach in the past will serve us well in our pursuit of a Presidents Cup.”
