He coached volleyball with Dr. Carruthers Public School and led the Northeastern Bantam girls to a Provincial Silver medal in 1989. He coached in the North Bay Minor Girls softball league for several years. As an administrator he convened NDA football four times, NDA basketball on six occasions and NDA track & field five times.
