Trevor began coaching at an early age and his main focus was in the sports of soccer and canoe kayak in the late 80’s. He then went to Acadia University where he completed a degree in Physical Education.Trevor then pursued a professional career in coaching as a head coach in canoe kayak where he spent one year in North Bay Ontario and moving back the following year to Nova Scotia where he resided as Mic Mac Amateur Aquatic Clubs Head Coach for 14 years. There Trevor led one of the top Nationally ranked canoe kayak clubs in the country with athletes being produced from Canada Games,Junior Worlds,Senior World Championships and Olympic levels.He acted as Canada’s National team coach for 5 years from 1998-2003, while also creating numerous National and high performance training camps for athletes.Motivated to provide for his community, Trevor came up with the idea for MAPS which aimed to provide the youth of his community with the knowledge and tools to help them be active through the concept of play and organized sport. These programs then led to the creation of MAPS elite where Trevor pulled from his professional experiences in sport and applied them to create a high performance program with an emphasis on sport specific training/conditioning, strength training and nutrition.

In 2004 Trevor also began working as an HRM Firefighter where he remains on the force today.
