“Ross has devoted over 17 years to Basketball BC in a number of roles, most recently directing the Performance program.  As well Ross has been integrally involved with our coaching clinics through the NCCP, BC and Canada Games and many other initiatives supporting athletes and coaches in our Province” Johns said 

He continued “Our association is indebted to Ross for his many, many hours of work and his dedication to our sport in this province.”

Johns concluded, “I have worked with Ross for 16 of those years and know firsthand the dedication he brings to the sport – a characteristic that the TCYBA will see on a first hand basis.  I know I speak for a large number of people in our sport and in sport in general in wishing him all the best.
