BALTIMORE – US Lacrosse has named Ann Kitt Carpenetti managing director of game administration, a newly created position at the national governing body under its revised organizational structure. Carpenetti is responsible for providing strategic leadership to as well as establishing policy and program consistency across the Men’s and Women’s Game Committee structures.
In order to achieve uniformity, Carpenetti is also responsible for coordinating collaboration between the Men’s and Women’s Game Committees concerning common areas or operational priority and focus. She will manage the men’s and women’s game directors, who serve as game experts and provide administrative leadership and support to the Men’s and Women’s Game Committees, as well as their respective subcommittee structures. She is also responsible for oversight of the men’s and women’s national team program through management of the director of national teams.
"Ann brings a comprehensive knowledge of the organization and the challenges facing both men’s and women’s lacrosse to this new staff position," said Steve Stenersen, US Lacrosse president and CEO. "She understands the important role of advocacy and consensus building within a structure like ours. I believe that her commitment to the organization and performance in her previous position over the past six years best position her to achieve success in this new role."
"I look forward to working with leaders from both games, in my new capacity," said Carpenetti. "In my six years at US Lacrosse, perhaps the most important thing I have learned is that while the men and women’s games are very different, the challenges and opportunities to responsible growth are shared. The only way we will be able to effectively demonstrate our relevance and influence in the sport, is if we work together to understand and respond to the growing needs of the lacrosse community."
In 2004, Carpenetti joined US Lacrosse as the women’s division director. In her position she was responsible for serving as the primary staff liaison for all constituencies of the women's lacrosse game in the United States.
As a result of the revised organizational structure, US Lacrosse is now seeking candidates for the men’s game director and women’s game director positions. These position titles replace the former men’s division director and women’s division director titles, but will still have the same roles within the organization.
