A high school coach for over 25 years, and one of the most successful in Manitoba.  Dave coached varsity girls basketball at Vincent Massey Collegiate from 1968 to 1989. The "Trojans" were Provincial Finalists nine times, and Provincial Champions 6 times - 1972, '73, '81, '83, '87, & '88. During the 1980’s Dave’s teams were in the provincial tournament every single year.

Dave also coached provincial teams at the junior (1978-79) and juvenile (1985-1988) levels.

In addition to coaching, Dave devoted a great deal of time to the development of basketball. He served as Vice-President and President of the Manitoba Basketball Coaches Association.   As Vice-President of Player Development for Basketball Manitoba, he developed a very successful Inter-provincial Program.

From 1979-1992, he was the Co-Chair of the Fort Garry Invitational Tournament, the annual kick start to the high school season. Throughout his coaching career, Dave was also a very effective basketball clinician.
