Ryan is second from the right in the front row.

Coquitlam Little League is proud to announce the formation of an annual bursary to honour the memory of Ryan Robertson.  Ryan Robertson was a long time Coquitlam Little League player and was taken from his friends, family and this community too soon.  Ryan was an amazing friend, brother, son, partner, accountant, realtor, accomplished baseball player and proud Yankee fan.

To honour and celebrate Ryan, his friends and family held a memorial Slo-Pitch tournament.  This tournament raised $2,685 and was the inspiration for the Ryan Robertson Memorial Bursary.  After becoming aware of this effort, two local businesses, Reliable Tube Inc. and Quality Pole Inc., matched the amount raised to recognise Ryan as an amazing person with a genuine passion for baseball and life.  This also inspired the Third Clan and they have contributed $3,333 with the expectation that these funds are spent ”furthering our local youth's love for the game that Ryan held dear to his heart”.

The bursary starts at $11,388 and will be distributed in $2,000 increments annually by the Coquitlam Little League Executive Committee.  If you would like to contribute to this bursary, or submit an application, please reach out to bursary@coquitlamlittleleague.ca

The Board of Directors of Coquitlam Little League are profoundly grateful to the Robertson Family, Reliable Tube Inc., Quality Pole Inc., and the Third Clan for this amazing gift to the youth in our community. 

With Gratitude to the Third Clan for their Generous Contribution

Dave Sturam Memorial Bursary

In 2018, Coquitlam Little League lost a coach and friend in Dave Sturam. To honor the commitment that he made to Coquitlam Little League, the 2018/19 Board of Directors official named one of their two annual bursaries as the Dave Sturam Memorial Bursary.
