Nanaimo Clippers assume management of senior B Timbermen

Hockey team announces it is propping up lacrosse team

Just before the start of hockey season, the Nanaimo Clippers announced they’re getting into the lacrosse business, too.

The Clippers hockey club announced last week that it has become the managing partner of the senior B Nanaimo Timbermen of the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association.

The T-men noted in the press release that after eight years, the lacrosse club’s executive wasn’t sure it could keep the team going.

“Without the Clippers coming on aboard, this team may not have operated next season,” said Shawn Swanson, general manager of the senior B Timbermen.

Wes Mussio, Clippers owner, said in the release that once the hockey team heard about the lacrosse team’s struggles, “we knew we had to step up and ensure the team would continue operations … This move definitely solidifies the sporting community in Nanaimo.”

Swanson will remain as GM of the lacrosse team but Clippers director of business operations Tali Campbell will take over as president of the senior B Timbermen.
