Michael started coaching with Hurricanes during the 1995 season as an Assistant Coach with the U14 Division "A" silver medalists. Since then he has coached an additional 30 teams, 24 with the Hurricanes, 21 as head coach and 3 as an assistant. One of his proudest achievements is the number of former athletes who have since coached with the organization, sharing his love of the game.
Michael's love of the game travels across all parts of the game; coach, fan, recreation player (former), official, official coach. Let's go Duke and let's go Raptors!
He has been an OABO official since 1989 and officiated at 7 OFSAA high school championships. Michael is currently the Referee Coach for Muskoka-Parry Sound Board of Approved Officials and has evaluated officials at OFSAA "AA" Girls in Huntsville (2017) and "A" Girls in North Bay (2018).
