Some of my proudest moments and life long coaching is seen in the accomplishments of my 3 sons... Robert, Marcus and Jake. They represent what it means to be a true student-athlete.  Without the hard work in the classroom, there wouldn't be the opportunity for success on the field or on the court.  


It's a pleasure to spend time with veteran coaches like Coach Hopper and Coach McCrone who have been working with young campers from grade 2 through to high school for 20+ years  in Barrie. Thanks for inviting me and bringing BAck to BasICs to the kids up there.
