Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) - The Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) is pleased to welcome Lynn Anne Hogan (Manager) and Richard Lush (Coordinator) as the newly hired full time PEI Aboriginal Sports Circle staff members.

Lynn Anne started her career as the first program director with Special Olympics PEI before joining Sport PEI as a Multi-Sport Executive Director.  In 2005, Lynn Anne left the field of sport administration for a career in health care fundraising where she spent 11.5 years raising funds for the IWK Health Centre Foundation and one year with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation before accepting the position of manager with the PEI Aboriginal Sport Circle.

Lynn Anne was the head coach for Team PEI’s women’s beach volleyball team at the 2001 Canada Summer Games in London, Ontario and part of the mission staff with Team PEI at the 2005 Canada Summer Games in Regina, Saskatchewan.  Lynn Anne has also attended various regional and national games with Special Olympics PEI.

Richard Lush, Kitpu Amalkewinu (Eagle Dancer - My Mi'kmaq name). American Football has been his main sport for 15 years now.  Playing as a Professional football Player in 2014 with a Pro Arena football team as well as stops with teams in the CFL.   Also being a part of a Vanier Cup Winning Football team with the University of Manitoba Bison’s was an amazing experience.  As a man growing up in PEI being able to travel across Canada with my skills and leadership in the sport was an amazing opportunity for him. 

Richard has been with the PEI ASC on different accounts for multiple years now, as a student, an athlete, and now as the Coordinator to help with the PEI ASC Vision and plan for upcoming opportunities for the PEI based Youth. He looks forward to helping with the guidance of Youth in the communities in PEI and working with Lynn Anne on making this PEI ASC Chapter the greatest it can be! 

The PEI Aboriginal Sports Circle supports grassroots participation in sport for Aboriginals in PEI. They recognize that active engagement in sport opportunities helps build healthier communities and individuals. They include representatives from Lennox Island and Abegweit First Nations and the PEI Native Council. They help young Aboriginal Islanders participate in local, regional and national sporting events, such as sport camps and training, tournaments and coaching.
