Coach of the Year Award

ernie roggieErnie Roggie has spent a lifetime in the development of the technical programs for the Canadian 5 Pin Bowlers' Association. Without the countless hours and hard work of this dedicated volunteer, our technical programs would be far behind those of other sports. A tribute to Ernie's commitment is the fact that 5 Pin Bowling has one of the largest numbers of certified coaches in any sport across Canada.

The Canadian 5 Pin Bowlers' Association wanted to thank Ernie for his years of hard work and dedication. At a joint meeting of the Canadian 5 Pin Bowlers' Association and the Master Bowlers' Association of Canada, in January of 1991, it was unanimously agreed that, beginning with the 1990-91 bowling season the C5PBA Coach of the Year Award be renamed to honour the man who practically invented the 5 Pin Bowling coaching program.

DavePost2In 2002, the C5PBA began the process of change to the Coaching Association of Canada's competency based coach training. Many hours and many people were involved with the development of the new 5 pin coaching programs but one man took the lead and brought these programs to reality.

The C5PBA is extremely grateful to these gentlemen for their tireless dedication. You, as competitors and especially coaches, have received the rewards of their work, knowledge and dedication so, if you ever have an opportunity to speak to them, say thank you. We are a better organization because of them!
