Executive Team

Operations Executive

Ashley Gilliland

Hey, everyone! My name is Ashley Gilliland and I am the Operations Executive for the 2017-2018 season. I am in charge of making the schedule for the LDL, maintaining/changing the rule book, and working with all the great liaisons to make the league the best it can be. On top of that, I also help run the Lister Dodgeball League Players Association, which everyone in the league is a part of, and their meetings. So if you are interested in dodgeball and want to see some of the behind-the-scenes stuff, ask your liaisons about coming to one of our meetings.

I grew up on a sheep farm in Langley, BC, before coming to Edmonton and the U of A for school. I’m going into the 4th year of my Bachelor of Science majoring in Honors Microbiology. In addition to my degree, I will be getting a certificate in research. I lived in Lister for my first 3 years of school, living on 9 Kelsey my first year and 2 Mackenzie for my second and third years (PooMac sorry for your colour). Despite sometimes rockin’ a resting bitch-face, I am usually a nice person and love chatting about dodgeball, the LDL and pretty much anything else you can think of, so please feel free to come say hi to me! Can’t find me in the Tuckey? Shoot me an email at operations@listerdodgeball.ca or swing by the LDL office and I’d be happy to answer any questions you have.

Officiating Executive

Mathew Johnson

Hi Everyone! My name is Matt Johnson and I am the Officiating Executive for the 2017-2018 season. A big part of my job is to hire, train and maintain the Head Referee team and to make sure games are refereed to the highest standard. Another aspect of my job is to handle discipline throughout the league and maintain sportsmanship as the highest pillar of the Lister Dodgeball League.

I was born and raised in a small Alberta town just north of Calgary called Didsbury before coming to Edmonton and the UofA for school. I recently finished my degree, a Bachelor of Science with Specializations in Biochemistry. I lived in Lister for my first 2 years of school, living on 3 Kelsey my first year (go 3-8K!) and 8 Henday my second year (go 5-8H!). After moving out of Lister, I continued to be a part of the league by becoming a Head Referee along with being the Operations Executive for the 2016-2017 season. I know, I’m old.  If you ever want to talk about anything dodgeball related or just want to talk, shoot me an email at officiating@listerdodgeball.ca, swing by the LDL office, or come watch a dodgeball game with me (I basically live in the Tuckey during dodgeball)!

External Executive

Marc Gagne

Heyo! My name is Marc Gagne and I am your External Executive this year. My job for the year entails all sorts of fun stuff, like merchandise, tournaments and public relations items. I will be mainly in charge of growing our positive reputation and image and showcasing how great our league is to the public and to you guys as well, facilitating many charitable and fun events! I am also the main point of contact for the LDL, so if anyone has any inquiries, questions or suggestions about the Lister Dodgeball League feel free to shoot me an email!

How did I get here? Well, let me tell you. I’m from Okotoks, Alberta but was born in Cold Lake, Alberta. I decided to come to the University of Alberta to study Mechanical Engineering and currently I am in my third year of the program. In first year, I was on an engineering cohort, specifically, I was a 5 Mac Ranger. I decided to come back to Lister the following year as a liaison, living as a mountaineer on 7 “Mount” Schäffer. Although I loved my experiences as a Lister dad, I am currently living out of Lister, but will be in the Tuckey or my office probably more than my house. So never be afraid to give a quick hello if you see me around.

In general, I’m here to make your dodgeball and Lister experience as fun and exciting as it can be, so if you ever want to put on a fundraiser, tournament, or just need someone to chat with feel free to shoot me an email (external@listerdodgeball.ca)! I look forward to meeting each and every one of you!

Finance Executive

Taylor Chase

Hey, everyone! My name is Taylor Chase (you can call me Sink), and I am the Finance Executive for the 2017-2018 LDL season! I deal with all the monetary needs regarding the LDL. Things like budgeting, collecting and spending money are what my job consists of. If you ever have questions about these topics feel free to ask me questions! For a little bit about myself, I was born in Stettler, Alberta, and lived there until moving up to Edmonton in order to pursue a degree in the Business faculty taking a double major in Business Law and International Business. I lived in Lister for two years both of them on lovely 7 Henday, being paired with 2 Henday in first year, and Tenday my second year! I have made so many great memories through dodgeball, meeting so many friends and making so many fun memories! It has been an awesome part of my time here at the UofA, and hopefully will be an awesome part of yours too! Despite a resting bitch-face, I am always happy to talk to anyone and everyone about anything! For any inquiries feel free to email me at Finance@listerdodgeball.ca . I am looking forward to meeting all of you and getting to know you this year, enjoy the 2017-18 Season!
