    Biography
    In 1935, Jimmy was a founder of the Flin Flon Basketball Association
    which operated a league for four men's and four women's teams. After
    the war, the program expanded to include both intermediate men's and
    women's teams and junior (high school age) boy's and girl's teams. For
    eighteen years, Jimmy coached a men's and a boy's team.

    Because of his efforts, Flin Flon basketball teams could
    compete with best teams in Manitoba, in particular the female teams.
    Between 1946 - 1960, the Legionettes (junior) and the Kopper Kweens
    (high school) teams won thirteen provincial titles between them. The
    coaches played for Jimmy.
