Support Staff Profiles

General Manager Allan Dawson

Al Dawson put the dream of a Senior AAA team in Mississauga on paper and made it a reality. When answering the quote from the movie Slapshot, "Who owns the Chiefs?" Al Dawson's name comes to mind. He is the CEO - the "suit" of the organization. He was president of the MGHL for three years and tournament chair for seven years and co-chair of the Mississauga Worlds Committee. Al enjoys watching his daughter Cindy play hockey. He is married with two children, Cindy, an OAC student and son Gary, a student at Sheridan College.

Physiotherapist Lisa Carlesso

Lisa Carlesso, in her third year with the Chiefs, has been a physiotherapist and has worked in the field of sports medicine for seven years. She is an athlete herself having played for the Canadian national ballhockey team, and has played slowpitch, rugby, soccer and ice hockey. Lisa hails from Niagara Falls and currently lives in Milton.

Equipment Manager Mike Symonds

Mike Symonds is a gold mine. He works very hard to help the team with their equipment needs and to obtain sponsors. He never complains at any task asked of him. "The Body Guard" was an honour student at school, and was MVP in bowling. In fact, Mike is very knowledgeable about all sports.

Statistician Douglas Foster

Doug Foster will be a definite asset to the team this year helping with the administration of the team. He comes with plenty of experience from the Brampton Canadettes where he held positions on their executive as treasurer, rep director and director of player development. Through the years, Doug has also coached and managed various rep teams in Brampton. Doug is currently semi-retired and enjoys his family cottage.
