OutSport Toronto Welcomes Lyle Brockman as New Treasurer, David Carter Steps Down

Lyle BrockmanLyle BrockmanOUTSPORT TORONTO is please to announce that Lyle Brockman has joined the board of directors, replacing David Carter as the organisation's treasurer.  Brockman holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Wilfrid Laurier University, and is a member of the Institute of Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario.  His career has placed him in senior financial roles at entrepreneurial and multi-national corporations.

"We're sad to see David Carter leave us at the board level," said OUTSPORT TORONTO Chair Shawn Sheridan, "as David provided wonderful leadership in his role as treasurer.  His sage advice, insight, and contributions will be missed.  Nonetheless, we're thrilled to have Lyle join us, as he too brings a strong financial background to the board, also being a CPA/CA."

Lyle's first foray into Toronto's LGBT sports environment was through the Toronto Gay Football Leaugue.  He has played three seasons in the league, and was proud to join its rep team, the Canadian Mounties, at the Chicago Pride Bowl of 2013.  In addition to playing, Lyle has also volunteered his time as a sideline referee to support the leauge.

Lyle has been an enthusiastic participant with the Toronto Triggerfish Water Polo team since October 2012.  With a background in competitive swimming, he continues to adapt to a very demanding and strategic game.  He has played in a number of tournaments on its Recreational team, including a Silver standing at Outsports 2013 in Antwerp and a fun time at Gay Games 2014 in Cleveland.  Lyle also volunteered as Tournament Director for Toronto's annual international LGBT water polo tournament, Polopalooza 2014.
