TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2018 /CNW/ - Alterna is pleased to announce a three-year partnership with the Toronto Rock Lacrosse Club and the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre. Alterna will be recognized as a premier partner of the Toronto Rock once again for the 2018/2019 season.
The Toronto Rock (The Rock) are a professional lacrosse franchise based in Toronto, Ontario. They are members of the East-Division of the National Lacrosse League (NLL), the largest men's professional indoor lacrosse league in North America. The Rock play their home games in Toronto, Ontario and today boast six NLL championships - tied for the most championships in the league's history.
"We are incredibly excited to be recognized as an Official Partner for the Toronto Rock once again," said Rob Paterson, Alterna President and CEO. "The Rock games are an affordable opportunity for family entertainment and we're proud to support a team that embodies the well-aligned values of our organization. Both Alterna and the Toronto Rock are committed to the communities we serve; it's part of our foundation. As a fan of the game and the team, I look forward to cheering them on with my family as they look to bring home another championship this season."
In addition to a partnership with the team, the agreement also includes a partnership with a state-of-the-art facility, the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre (TRAC). Located in Oakville, Ontario, the TRAC sees 300,000 annual visitors and is home to several high-traffic events and tournaments beyond the Toronto Rock pre-season games. Their year-round programming includes everything from camps, clinics, meetings and more.
"We are very excited to extend our partnership with Alterna," explained Rock Owner, President and GM Jamie Dawick. "The team at Alterna were strong partners last season. We are looking forward to growing our relationship this season and well into the future with Alterna and all things Toronto Rock."
