Winston has been a great asset to the sports of hockey and fastball in Niagara for many years. As an athlete, Winston progressed through the Stamford Minor Hockey system, playing on travelling teams in Bantam, Midget, Juvenile and Junior "B". He won two scoring titles and one M.V.P. award while playing in the Niagara District Lincoln league.
Winston proved himself equally talented in fastball. From 1959-1985, Winston was an 11 time All Star and won the home run trophy so many times that he was allowed to keep it.
As a way of showing his appreciation to all of his coaches, managers and executive members, Winston decided to turn to coaching and managing. Beginning in 1974, as the first coach of the Skylon Oldtimers Hockey Team, Winston continued to serve in that capacity and remains an active committee member for the Memorial Oldtimers Hockey tournament. He also coached and managed the Niagara Falls Men's Rainbow Fastball league and served as president in 1984 and 1985. He has been director of the Chippawa Amateur Athletic Association from 1986-95 and served as president in 1996-97. During that time, Winston was also the successful manager of the Chippawa Jr. "C" hockey club.
Winston's achievements have been recognized on a national level. The Canadian Government recognized his outstanding community involvement with an award and he has been elected to the Canadian Oldtimers Hockey Association Hall of Fame as a builder, coach and player. Niagara Falls is very proud to honour such a great all-round contributor to sport.
