Roger combined his own competitive curling with coaching teams at Peacock High School in Moose Jaw. As a competitor, he skipped teams to win the 1972 Mixed Provincial Championship and the 1976 Mens Provincial title. As a Coach, his High School teams won eight Provincial titles. Roger was Coach for one Saskatchewan Winter Games Provincial winner, one 16 and Under Provincial winner and three Provincial Junior Championship teams.
Roger’s style of coaching combined ability, cooperation, communication and confidence. His ultimate goal was to see the young teams improve their physical and mental skills, gain respect for each other and their opponents and to develop a winning attitude. Judging by the impressive list of his graduates, it works!
