Apr 16 2019 - In Memorium - LeRoy Washburn

It is with great regret and sorrow that we at Athletics New Brunswick and at Athletics Canada share the passing of LeRoy Washburn, one New Brunswick’s giant builders and ambassadors on so many fronts, in particular that of our sport of Athletics. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his wife and “life’s best friend” for 63 years, Loretta, to his large and extended family as well as to his many friends from across the New Brunswick and Canada in the sport of athletics.  

His life story from a youngster of Blackville near Miramichi, to Phys. Ed. teacher in Oromocto, including thirty years as Saint Thomas University’s Athletics Director, 45 years as an active supporter of the Royal Legion and 8 years as a member of parliament, father of five children, grandfather of seven, and one great granddaughter is brilliantly summarized in his obituary. 

Within the Sport of Athletics, LeRoy was actively engaged for over 60 years as an local and international official, trainer, coach, ANB president and director of the Canadian official standardization and improvement process. Over his career LeRoy officiated at numerous major national and international events, including the Olympic Games and was inducted to the Athletics Canada Hall of Fame in 2014 in the category of Builder (See picture). A more detailed account of this great New Brunswicker’s impact on our sport and on many athletes will be published shortly on the ANB website.

Visitation are Tuesday, April 16th, from 3 -7 pm at the Oromocto Funeral Home, 108 Winnebago Street. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated from St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 25 Loisville Street, Oromocto, on Wednesday, April 17th, 2019 at 11 am. Fr. Charles Udeh will officiate.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the LeRoy Washburn Memorial Scholarship Fund at St. Thomas University ( would be appreciated by the family.

Apr 10 2019 - Letter to ANB Members from CSG 2021 Team NB Head Coach

April 10, 2019

Dear ANB members,

I am honoured and proud to have been named Head Coach for the 2021 games for NB.

I want to say congratulations to Julia Loparco, selected as our team manager. I look forward to working with her as we all prepare for the 2021 games in Niagara Region, Ontario.

New Brunswick has had outstanding results at the last two Canada Games bringing home nine medals in 2013 and eight medals in 2017! Those are the Best NB athletics finishes ever. The bar has been set very high for our efforts in 2021 which will be here in a blink of an eye. They are just under 850 days or about 120 weeks away. We will have to work hard to maintain that level of success!

The most important thing will be our focus on the eligible athletes. If you were born in 1997 - 2000 then you make up the primary age demographic for 2021 team selection. Younger athletes are part of the secondary demographic and still eligible for 2021 but can also look towards 2024. The questions for our athletes are: 

What are your goals for 2021? What are you doing now to achieve them? How can we help and support your training and development?

The call of staff coaches will be made shortly with selections to follow by the end of July. Once the coaching team is in place, the 2021 CSG plan is going to be developed based on the success of our teams the last two games and with input from stakeholders. The goal will be to create a pathway for success at the games and the long-term development of our NB athletes.

Thank you for your support in being put in charge of this program. I am excited and proud to take on this role. If you ever have any questions or thoughts that require discussion, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.

Thank you!

Bill MacMackin – Canada Summer Games 2021 Head Coach
