Athletics New Brunswick is happy to announce that Shayne Dobson will be ANB’s new Athlete Representative. Dobson, of Campbellton, and a graduate of Université de Moncton will hold this position for a two-year term.

On top of all this Shayne has been a longtime committed member of Athletics New Brunswick. Over the course of his two year term, he will give a voice to the athletes from New Brunswick as a whole.
“It is awesome to see an athlete as successful as Shayne Dobson to offer to serve athletes as a whole from his province” President, Marc Lalonde said, “We would like to congratulate him on obtaining this position.
