Dale Currie

What is your name?

My name is Dale Currie

Where are you from?

I am from Oromocto, NB

Tells us briefly how you got into coaching.

Sports have always been a big part of my life. I started playing softball at just 7 years old, and began coaching at just 21 years old. I started by coaching the Oromocto High School Girls Team, and went on to eventually coach 3 Canada Summer Games teams and attend several Canadian Championships. I have also coached provincially, and at the Men’s and Women’s Western Games.

How long have you been coaching?

Since I have started back at 21 years old, it’s now been 48 years that I have been coaching.

Do/Did you have any unique pre-game rituals?

No pregame rituals for me. I simply liked getting the team together before a game to talk, discuss strategy, and get them excited.

What is one thing you would tell a young person who is thinking of starting to coach?

Listen, Learn, Teach, Outcome. I would tell a young person who is starting to coach to set goals (big or small) and obtain your coaching levels as soon as you can. You may get the chance to coach alongside other great coaches like George Gillet, Bobby Despres, and Jeremy Tracy.

What is your favorite thing about the game of softball?

My favorite thing about softball is connecting with players and coaches of all ages and backgrounds. Getting to see them progress on the diamond and in life as a whole is an amazing thing to watch.

What is your favorite place softball has taken you?

Softball has taken me to 7 provinces across the country. My favorite place would have to be the Canada Summer Games at the University of London, Ontario.

How have you been handling/keeping busy during the COVID-19 situation?

COVID-19 has kept me from coaching and off the diamond for the first time in 48 years. However, I look forward to being back on the diamond once it has passed.

What is your favorite softball career highlight to date?

Having had the opportunity to coach at 3 Canada Summer Games, and being named Softball Alberta Coach of the Year!

What are some of your coaching goals?

I have been lucky to have met many of my softball coaching goals. I have received my Level 3 certification, been inducted to the Softball New Brunswick Hall of Fame, Oromocto Sports Wall of Fame, I have attended 5 Canadian Championships, 3 Canada Games, and was awarded Coach of the Year!
