Biographies of Staff
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.
Arnold Mirasty – Facility Supervisor
Arnold has been working with the JRMCC since 2002 where he initially started on the
maintenance crew. He is passionate about meeting and helping all the patrons that come through the facility and feels that it’s an important place for youth to keep them busy. Arnold credits the success of the JRMCC to its ‘Open all the time and never turn anyone away from recreation activity’ motto.
Colin Ratushniak – Fitness Center Supervisor
Colin joined the JRMCC team in 2019. He has a colorful background in various sports, but it was figure skating that took him around the world professionally performing in over 500 major cities, 65 countries and 5 continents. His passion for fitness and working with high level athletes as a coach has attributed to the extended success of the fitness center and other programming. Colin feels that a facility like the JRMCC is vital to a community, which gives youth and adults alike an outlet to exercise their physical and mental health. A state of the art facility like the JRMCC gives aspiring youth a place to grow their talents in sport and recreation and they do everything they can to give that opportunity. Colin says, that sport, while striving to win, teaches athletes about teamwork, discipline, leadership and sportsmanship, all of which can contribute to their development as solid citizens.
Nichole Charles – Administrative Assistant
Nichole has been working with the JRMCC since the summer of 2019. She is a Team
Woodland alumni and is heavily involved with the sport of volleyball. Nichole is instrumental in keeping the back end of the JRMCC running smoothly.
