Biographies of Staff

Kevin Roberts – Director of Sports, Culture & Recreation.

Kevin Roberts – Director of Sports, Culture & Recreation

Kevin has worked in his Director position at the JRMCC since 2012, but previously in the Human Resources department at the Lac La Ronge Indian Band for several years before. Kevin is heavily involved in local minor hockey as a board member, manager and coach. He periodically coaches and manages softball as well. For Kevin, recreation is all about opportunity. It’s the opportunity to participate in activities you enjoy, to provide equipment for those activities and develop the facilities where you can utilize that equipment. This idea forms the basis of the organizations mission, “We organize administer, promote and support sports, reaction and fitness opportunities to the benefit of our community.” Kevin says he’s a recreational professional because he truly loves his job. Every day provides a new challenge or allows him the chance to make a difference. One of the greatest things he feels he can do is to serve his community in a non-political role. It’s one of the simplest ways to make your community a better place.
